To add further strings to Nene Storage Equipment’s bow; two employees recently went through vigorous training and examination to become SMSTS qualified.

Aaron Shepherd and Jay Fleming recently attended the 5 day course in Milton Keynes and both passed with flying colours.

Everyone at Nene Storage would like to congratulate Aaron and Jay on their achievement.

What is SMSTS

The Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) is regarded in the construction industry as a must if you’re considering, or already have, responsibilities for planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and administering groups of staff e.g. site manager. It provides you with the essential knowledge and understanding on responsibilities and accountability for site safety.

Possession of this qualification is listed in the Approved Code of Practice for the Construction (Design and Management) (CDM) Regulations as a demonstration of competence in the role of site manager.

It covers all relevant legislation affecting safe working in the building, construction and civil engineering industries. It highlights the need for risk assessment in the workplace, the implementation of the necessary control measures and adequate communication to sustain a health and safety culture within the workforce.

What does this mean for our customers?

The comfort of knowing you are in safe hands, all of our installations fall under CDM Regulations, but should an installation become notifiable to the HSE, we have the knowledge, training and experience in:

  • Implementing all health, safety, welfare and environmental legislation affecting daily work
  • Implementing new guidance and industry best practice
  • Controlling  a safe installation under construction site conditions
  • Defining our duties and responsibilities with regards to health, safety, welfare and the environment
