What is Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme by CITB?
To achieve a broad understanding of construction site health and safety matters, book a place on our CITB SSSTS course online (Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme). This training programme is known as the industry standard for any employees who work in a supervisory position on Build UK sites; it is approved and endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group and is an absolute must for any construction professionals who are responsible for their own set of workers.
Who is the SSSTS Online Course Suitable for?
Existing supervisors, or those who have just been granted a supervisory role, will benefit from the engaging content that is supplied on this SSSTS online course. These individuals will learn all about the latest health and safety procedures, be brought up to date with current legislation, and will cover topics such as today’s environmental issues and employers’ legal responsibilities. Regardless of their current knowledge, candidates will leave their SSSTS course with an invaluable in-depth understanding of the challenges associated with running a construction site and how they can work together with their employees to identify hazards and minimise risks.
Once candidates have completed their SSSTS course online training, they can step up to the five day SMSTS – Site Management Safety Training Scheme, which is another course offered by the expert trainers here at Target Zero.
Everyone who attends the online SSSTS training course will be required to complete a multiple choice questionnaire at the end of the programme. Participants must attend both course days to be awarded their Construction Site Supervisor’s Safety Certificate.
