This one-day interactive course in Staffordshire has been designed for company directors and senior managers, with the aim of recognising the human and financial implications of non-compliance of health and safety legislation.

The course, delivered on-site or at our Staffordshire base will provide a summary of how to promote a positive organisational culture for health and safety.

Workshop exercises throughout the day will give leaders the opportunity to discuss their thoughts about health and safety and company directors.


This one day CITB Site Safety Plus course is aimed at Company Directors and Senior Managers.


Assessment will be by an exam paper and a trainer review. The examination demonstrates to external bodies that the certificate is only awarded to successful learners following both an assessment and examination. The examination paper number will be notified when the course booking is accepted by CITB. Trainers will start the course with a What do you know question paper to establish knowledge levels.
