CITB SSSTS Course
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.
- H&S – Laws & Regulations
- Supervisory responsibilities in controlling safely
- Risk Assessment and Method Statements (RAMS)
- Effective site inductions, tool box talks and method statement briefing
- Accident reporting
- Monitoring site activities safely
- The importance of using the correct PPE
- Intervening when bad practice is identified
The certification for the SSSTS course is valid for 5 years, to remain certified delegates will need to ensure they complete a 1-day Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme refresher (SSSTS-R) course before the certificate expires. If a refresher course is not completed before the expiry of the certificate the full 2-day SSSTS course will need to be retaken.
- Photographic ID
- Good understanding of spoken and written English – translation aids are not premitted.
- Delegates under 18 years of age require parental/guardian consent
