An overview of the CITB Directors Role for Health and Safety Training Course

This course has been devised for company directors and senior management team members with a strategic health and safety position in the built environment including:

  • Recognise the moral, economic and legal costs/implications of decisions made in the boardroom that may make their business liable
  • Understand the significance of strategic management of risks
  • Appreciate the range of consequences from failing to manage health and safety effectively
  • Understand the importance of competent duty holders, and the significance of their cooperation, communication and coordination of health and safety on projects
  • Recognise the need to appoint competent health and safety assistance, and the limitations of such an appointment, and
  • Identify the basic tools to introduce a proactive health and safety culture into an organisation, and the benefits of this approach

Course Delivery:

Delegates will need to complete a pre-course eLearning document which lasts approximately 1.5 hours. Successful completion of this component generates a digital certificate, a copy of which needs to be emailed to Target Zero.

All delegates must have either previously completed a CITB DRHS course or have sound working knowledge of the following:

  • Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974
  • Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969
  • Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) 2015
  • Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999

The exam is in two parts:

  • Part A will cover questions related to the course.
  • Part B covers questions relating to a case study.

The 35-minute exam is a mixture of multiple choice, multi response and short written answers and has a pass mark of 70%. Delegates can have access to the GE700A book for the last 15 minutes of the exam.


The certificate lasts 5 years, whereby the delegate may look to book the NEBOSH course. The CITB certificate takes 2 – 3 weeks and will be emailed to you.


Once you have booked online you will be emailed Joining Instructions, confirming the course details. Before booking, please note that you need to have adequate IT skills and a laptop or computer which has a working microphone and camera (not an IPad or mobile phone).
