SMSTS or SSSTS; Choosing the Right Course for your Role

Deciding on SMSTS London Courses or SSSTS Courses?

If you have a responsibility in health and safety or are looking to gain a promotion to a Site Management position, then you may be considering attending a SSSTS or SMSTS Course. To decide the best option for you, RISK takes a brief look at the differences between the SMSTS London course and SSSTS London based training.


SMSTS or SSSTS; which to consider?

  • Our SMSTS London courses (Site Management Safety Training Scheme) are 5 days in duration and include practical exercises, real life case studies and a written exam on the last day. This enables learners to manage H&S on site, implement best practice, prepare risk assessments and understand current health and safety, environment and welfare legislation.

Our SMSTS London courses are ideal for people who need to manage a construction workforce and the 5 year SMSTS certificate is often a standard entry level for many UK construction companies.


  • Our SSSTS London courses (Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme) are only 2 days in duration and cover the importance of risk assessments and the understanding of control measures to reduce health issues and construction accidents.

By the end of the course, learners will take a brief multiple choice exam and receive a SSSTS card. This is a great course for a solid foundation in health and safety for new site supervisors or anyone looking to pursue a supervisory role.
