CSTS Training

Construction Safety Training Services (CSTS) was founded in 1993, the company specialised in plant training to meet the needs of the Construction Industry Schemes at the time.

With the introduction of the CSCS Scheme the company became involved in Health and Safety Training for all trades within the Construction/Civil Engineering industry, but also across many other industries including Quarrying/Extractives, Engineering Agriculture, Manufacturing, Distribution Waste/Landfill and Utilities.

With an ever increasing customer base CSTS now provides an extensive range of courses and works closely with our customers to ensure training meets the needs of their business.

To further develop our business and to be in a stronger position moving forward, CSTS merged with Woods Plant Hire Ltd (Formerly Barry Wood Plant Hire Ltd) to create a new Trading Division; this has provided many benefits and has increased our customer base significantly while at the same time providing Health and Safety expertise within Woods Plant Hire Ltd.

CSTS employ chartered Health and Safety practitioners and trainers to provide not only Health and Safety Training but also a wide range of services including Health and Safety documentation and policies.

The success of our business over the last 22 years has been built on trust and reliability and the delivery of a first class service to our customers, these are our core business beliefs and will continue to be so for the future.

 “We have been working with Sue and her team at CSTS for a number of years. The courses we have used have been excellently run and they always keep us up to date with any new courses that are available. Whether it be at the end of the phone or email they are always ready to help with any queries and advice. We strongly recommend this company and cannot thank them enough for all their help and efficient service.”

Steve Balfe , Balfe Building & Construction Ltd

“We have used CSTS for a number of years now and have always found the service they offered to be consistently over and above the expected. The knowledge and expertise that both Dave and Matt bring during training courses and tests, right through to the ‘nothings too much hassle’ ethos in arranging tests and courses at late notice that Sue brings, makes CSTS a very easy and rewarding company to work with. Whenever we need a new test or course, be it for the Loading Shovels, Articulated Dumpers or 360 Excavators, we will always speak to CSTS.”

Mark Dormer, Furness Brothers Ltd

“I have been using CSTS for our training requirements for nearly 10 years now. They have provided us with a wide range of quality safety training and are willing to tailor training courses to suit our specific industry and company needs. As Mouldings work nationally Dave is also willing to travel to various sites as not to cause disruption to our production requirements. The team at CSTS have helped me to improve the competence of all our Employees from Management training to labourers and many plant operators.

Many thanks to all the staff at CSTS”

Christian West (CMIOSH), Moulding Contracts Ltd


CSTS have been delivering Health & Safety Solutions to suit our needs as an Established Property Development Company for many years. Their training team has a wealth of knowledge & experience within Health & Safety especially within the construction arena which has allowed us to have confidence in them delivering training courses across the group.

“With back office support which has been second to none CSTS & the team behind the training offers a  friendly, efficient and cost effective service always tailored to our needs.  We have found that no training group is too big or too small for them to support.  Often needing their training & support at very short notice, where possible CSTS have moved things around to suit our needs.

Sue, Dave and the team at CSTS have always made us feel a priority, & supported our business to ensure the relevant accredited training course is provided.

A big thank you to the team at CSTS for supporting us along the way your hard work is truly appreciated.”
