  • Since APT Health & Safety Training were awarded accreditation by the CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) to run the Site Environment Training Scheme (SEATS) course, we’ve helped many, many people gain invaluable knowledge relating to construction site safety, as well an industry standard qualification that is recognised throughout the UK.

    If  you’re looking to add this valuable qualification to your CV, contact us today. Our well-quipped training centre is about an hours drive from Nottingham and Leicester in the East Midlands and under an hours drive from Birmingham in the West Midlands. If it would be more convenient for you for us to deliver the SEATS course on-site at your place of work, we can do that also. Just get in touch with us today for more information.

    SEATS Explained

    This 1-day course offers an introduction to the various environmental issues on construction sites and has been purposefully devised to benefit staff with management or supervisory responsibilities.


    The aim of the SEATS course is to meet the basic environmental knowledge that the sub-contract chain are required to show proof of when working with major contractors. The SEATS course is fully up to date and covers the environmental aspects of the new touch-screen Health, Safety and Environment test (that everyone applying for a CSCS card must take).


    SEATS: What to expect


    APT delivers the SEATS course by means of classroom discussion, case studies, group work and individual/group presentations and it is highly interactive. Candidates will be continuously assessed as well as be required to successfully complete a multiple-choice test at the end. Individuals who successfully pass the SEATS course assessment and the test will receive a CITB Site Safety Plus certificate.


    The SEATS structure:


    One you have completed the SEATS course successfully you’ll understand how work on construction sites is affected by the following:


    • The environment and why it matters
    • Best practice techniques and legal compliance
    • Waste management
    • Environmental management systems
    • Pollution prevention and water management
    • How to be a good neighbour: statutory nuisance, communication, archaeology and heritage
    • Being a responsible contractor
    • Energy and resources
    • Each session ends with key “dos and don’ts” & sources of further information.



    In addition the CITB Site Safety Plus certificate for successful candidates, participants in the SEATS course will to receive a copy of the new CITB Construction Skills publication: GE 700 (Environmental section) to help further build and reinforce your knowledge.


    NOTE: To partake in the SEATS, you must have a good understanding of spoken and written English. Please contact APT if you have any concerns in this regard – we’re here to help!
