In a high risk environment like a construction site, first aid training is nothing short of essential.

You will also learn about the legislation which is in place to keep everyone safe on site.

The test at the end of the course can also be taken online, in which case it will be observed remotely by an independent invigilator. If they complete the course successfully, delegates will receive a CITB certificate. This is valid for 5 years.
The Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) is for site managers, supervisors, or anyone in a senior role with staff working under them – no matter the exact job title. Our SMSTS course is delivered over 5 days, making it one of the most comprehensive that we offer. Delegates will learn through a mix of case studies, group work and class discussions.
The course is wide-ranging in all that it covers. You will learn about CDM regulations, confined spaces, demolition, scaffolding, electricity, excavations and working at height. You’ll learn all about the legislation related to these, which will allow you to make sure that all rules are being followed when you’re back on site. Successful completion of the course will see delegates gain their CITB SMSTS certificate. This will expire after 5 years, but you can take a refresher course before then to maintain your certification.
The Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course is suitable for site supervisors and managers. Delegates will learn about the legal responsibility they have to maintain health and safety on-site, along with a range of welfare and environmental issues. This course covers health and safety legislation, common site issues, occupational health, and behavioural safety. Delegates will also be taught how to deliver effective toolbox talks.

The final, defining assessment is a multiple choice questionnaire. If this is completed successfully, delegates will gain a CITB SSSTS certificate valid for 5 years.
CSCS Green Card Certification
If you are looking to obtain your CSCS Green Card, then you will need to complete two courses. Here at Harrington Safety, you are able to take one of these. This is the HSA 1 day course, which you will be please to know can be taken both online and at the weekend. This really does make it accessible for everyone.
Upon successful completion of this HSA course in Milton Keynes, a delegate will be one step closer to obtaining their CSCS card. To do this, they will have to follow up a HSA course with a touch screen environmental test. A CSCS Green Card is valid for 5 years, and is a requirement for working on most construction sites. So needless to say, this is one of the most popular courses that we offer in Milton Keynes.
Work at Height Courses
Scaffolding, ladders, platforms and powered access equipment are all part and parcel of working at height, and it’s vital to know how to work safely while using them – along with knowing how to carry out risk assessments and to correctly use PPE. Work at height means work in any place where, if precautions were not taken, a person could fall a distance liable to cause person injury. This even includes working at ground level if you are near an opening in the ground where you could fall. Our working at height training courses in Milton Keynes are suitable for all delegates who are currently working or about to start working at height.
We have a number of courses that delegates can pick from, covering harness use, harness inspection, steps, ladders, harness and leading edge, along with a course on how to identify potential hazards. Knowing how to identify hazards is so important, as preventing an accident from happening in the first place is the preferred outcome in all possible situations.
Our work at height training courses in Milton Keynes are all half day courses, and you can take them alone or create a day of training that’s tailored to suit your exact needs. Training on site is also an option as we offer flexible training packages.
Face Fit Testing
Respiratory protective equipment (commonly abbreviated to RPE) is essential for maintaining long and short term respiratory health outcomes in dust or fume-heavy environments. A face fit test ensures that a mask is properly fitted, and checks that an individual won’t be exposed to any harmful materials before they start work. It’s totally safe and effective, and gives both delegates and their supervisors total peace of mind.
During our face fit testing in Milton Keynes, delegates will first of all complete a taste test which simply involves them confirming they can taste a bitter solution. Once this part of the test has been completed, they will be asked to complete a number of different exercises while wearing a mask. This is to see if the mask moves. The test is declared a success if a delegate works their way through all the tasks without tasting any more of the bitter solution, confirming a total seal. It’s recommended that this test be carried out every 2 years.
The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) is the number one accrediting body and authority for mobile elevated work platforms. These are more commonly known as ‘MEWPs’.
