CITB Site Environmental Awareness Training Scheme (SEATS)


This one-day site environmental awareness training scheme (SEATS) course is designed for those who have, or are about to acquire, supervisory responsibilities.

This course is designed to provide supervisors and managers with a clear introduction to environmental issues on construction sites. Delegates should be at site supervisor level before taking part (no formal pre-qualifications are required).

The course covers all relevant legislation and other aspects that affect the environment in the building, construction and civil engineering industries. It will provide supervisors with a broad understanding of the environment and the issues construction sites’ face

Course Content

To help construction supervisors to:

  • supervise and protect the environment through legal provisions
  • protect the eco-system – the relationships and interactions between animals, plants (flora and fauna) and organisms and their environment
  • follow environmental management systems and processes to mitigate environmental damage
  • play their part in reducing statutory nuisance and disturbance to neighbours
  • manage the impact that archaeology and heritage can have on construction
  • control water consumption and reduce the impact construction has on natural water supplies
  • implement control measures to prevent the pollution of watercourses
  • identify ethically sourced timber though the chain-of-custody entering site
  • identify, control and manage contamination on brownfield sites
  • classify, segregate and properly dispose of waste.


Examination Method

Assessment will be by an end of course multiple-choice examination and trainer review. The delegate must pass the exam and pass both elements of the trainer review.  The trainer review demonstrates engagement, collaborative working and listening skills – key elements of becoming an environmental supervisor.


Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for this course. However, it has been developed for construction supervisors, so this should be considered before enrolling delegates on this course. Delegates must be competent in English at site supervisor level.
