Official 2- day Site Safety Supervisor Training Scheme (SSSTS) training course from the CITB – of which we are an accredited member and an approved CITB training provider.

The site safety accreditation is the most recognised qualification and is a standard requirement for all supervisors set out by Build UK (previously known as UKCG).

The course is suitable for ‘acting’ managers or supervisors looking to take on a supervisor role and helps develop knowledge, awareness and understanding of legal, moral and social responsibilities in respect of health, safety and welfare on construction sites.

The course is a ‘supervisor’ course and is not the same as SMSTS (Site Manager Safety Training Scheme) which is a more advanced course and qualification.
