    "The Site Management Safety Training Scheme for the Building and Civil Engineering Industries - Course Notes", RRP £44.95

  • Brief Description: These full colour notes contain all the information required for delegates to satisfactorily complete the ConstructionSkills Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course. This revised edition also contains HSE reference updates.

    "Construction Site Safety Volume 1 and Volume 2", RRP £69.95

    Brief Description: This study book is the leading publication within the construction industry for guidance on current construction health and safety legislation. It is revised annually to take into account the latest changes to construction legislation and new or updated health and safety guidance and procedures.

    It is a must-have publication for all candidates attending the ConstructionSkills Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course, as it is the only publication that brings EVERYTHING you need to know about construction site health and safety together in one place.

    Each module is loose leafed and provides practical, accurate and authoritative advice on all the important areas of construction health and safety within the existing legal framework and requirements.

    60 of the 65 modules cover specific topic areas in relation to health, safety, welfare and the environment, whilst the remaining five (in the 'Miscellaneous' section) provide information that may be helpful to people on a construction site.

    The content of each module balances the requirements of relevant legislation, as it applies to the construction industry and provides practical guidance on how to comply with the legislation. By studying individual modules, users will be able to assess the legal responsibilities of themselves and others, and decide how best to organise work activities on a construction site in a safe and healthy manner.
