The CITB Site Safety Supervisor Training Scheme (SSSTS) health and safety course is perfect for first line managers looking to continue, or take on a supervisory role within the construction industry. The course teaches the necessary health and safety skills needed to maintain a safe site.

There are no prerequisites to the SSSTS course, which aims to provide attendees with the skills to:

  • Identify problem areas found in the construction industry.
  • Understand and appreciate proactive and reactive monitoring.
  • Perform risk assessments and recognise the importance of method statements.
  • Have an understanding of the way the health and safety laws are structured.
  • Learn the skills needed to perform on site inductions, method statement briefs and toolbox talk.

The SSSTS training course covers The Health & Safety at Work Act and the regulations relevant to the Construction Industry (amongst others) including: site set-up, CDM, risk assessments and method statements, scaffolding, electricity, excavations, demolition, confined spaces, company specific aspects e.g. rails etc, and working at height.

A maximum of 20 delegates are accepted on this course, to be sure of a positive learning experience, and further explanation if required. Each Health and Safety North East instructor provides top quality training, and they all possess the NEBOSH Construction Certificate as a minimum, as well as being HSE/CITB accredited.

The duration of the SSSTS course is 15 hrs and takes place over 2 days either in one of HSNE’s training facilities or in-house.Training delivered on site is more beneficial to the trainees as the training can be tailored to their workplace activities, with costs to the client being significantly reduced.
