Plant grants review

The aim of the review is to simplify employer access to plant grants whilst maintaining high standards of training and testing in this safety critical area. We intend to work closely with industry including employers and federations throughout this process and draw on their knowledge and expertise.

Plant short duration training review consultation

During October and November 2021, we carried out a consultation exercise with industry in order to gain views on what the new Plant Short Duration Training Standards and Grants should look like. A big thank you to all those who took part in the consultation, the consultation is now closed.

With 245 survey responses, we are now in the process of analysing the feedback. Based on this analysis, we will then publish our final proposals on what the new Plant Standards and Grants will look like. Work will then begin on developing the new standards.

As a Standards Setting Body, CITB have a team of standards developers who have the technical experience to develop construction standards. We will use industry representatives to provide specific expertise, and to ensure the standards that are developed meet the needs of the construction industry.

This page will be updated on a regular basis as the work progresses.
