CITB – ‘Site Safety Plus ‘Training
The Site Safety Plus Framework provides the construction industry with the necessary infrastructure to be able to deliver health, safety and environmental training solutions. It helps with the provisions of career development ensuring that the work force remains safe within their working environment.
The framework recognises a natural progression from those first entering the industry to those responsible for supervising, managing and directing construction work.
These courses are designed to give everyone at all levels within the industry the skills they need to progress. From a one-day Health and Safety Awareness (HSA) course, which also supports those requiring the knowledge to obtain their CSCS card, to the five-day Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS), a more advanced input and learning opportunity.
Temporary works are the parts of a construction project that are needed to enable the permanent works to be built. Usually they are removed after use, e.g. access scaffolds, props, shoring, excavation support, falsework and formwork. Sometimes the temporary work can become permanent after use with it being incorporated into the permanent works, E.g. haul road foundations and crane or piling platforms may be used further used as hard standing or road foundations.
The correct design and execution of temporary works is an essential element of risk prevention and mitigation in construction. BS 5975 provides recommendations and guidance on the procedural controls to be applied to all aspects of temporary works in the construction industry and on the design, specification, construction, use and dismantling of falsework.
