The SMSTS course was brilliantly delivered by Brian, considering COVID environment, it couldn't be held in a physical classroom so the course was delivered via Zoom. This was surprisingly engaging and informative. Brian is highly professional, calm and knowledgeable, it was really good to be part of this diverse group.

After five days of training, delegates are expected to leave with the confidence that they can run a safe site and have the tools to minimise safety risks to those they work with. The training and certification also highlight how a safe site is much more productive and efficient, qualities that are valuable to any employer.

At the end of the course, participants should be able to:

• Practice and implement all health, safety, welfare and environmental legislation that may affect their daily work
• Implement new guidance and industry best practices
• Identify their duties and responsibilities concerning health, safety, welfare and the environment
