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.

At the end of the course you’ll have an understanding of:

  • 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

Course entails:

  • Group presentations
  • Individual presentation to the class
  • Course examination – delegates must acheive a pass mark of 80% of more.

Mandatory entry requirements:

  • To be able to read, write and understand English to a good level. Please contact us if you have any concerns in this area.
  • If you need to re-sit the test, you must do this within 90 days of the original course date at an additional charge
  • You’ll need to provide a valid ID on the first day of the course, such as a copy of your passport or driving licence. See accepted list of ID.

We are committed to the govenment guidance for social distancing during the current Covid-19 pandemic and we offering both classroon and remote delivery for this course. Our remote delivery allows delegates to attend the course from their home or work anywhere with in the United Kingdom.

Since 7th December 2020 CITB issue certificates digitally which means hard copies are no longer be issued.

Delegates receive a PDF certificate via email. CITB have introduced this method to help significantly  reduce the waiting time for delegates receiving their certification. This has been introduced by CITB not ourselves, all sites are required to except a PDF copy of CITB certification.

Course is for site supervisors

You will learn about your legal responsibilities regarding health, safety, welfare and environmental issues.

NB: Qualification needs renewing every 5 years by attending a SSSTS Refresher course. You need to complete the refresher course before your certificate expires or you'll need to complete the full course again.
