The two day Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) courses are intended for those who have, or are about to acquire, supervisory responsibilities. It provides supervisors with an understanding of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, as well as their legal responsibilities relevant to their work activities. It will highlight the requirement to promote health and safety in order to supervise effectively. This course is endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group as the standard training for all supervisors working on UKCG sites.

Aims and Objectives
To ensure that all those given supervisory responsibilities understand:
why they are carrying out their identified duties
what is expected of them and
to ensure that they contribute to the safety of the workplace
To ensure that at the end of the course delegates will be able to:
understand the problems of the industry
have an understanding of how health and safety law is structured and how it applies to supervisors
identify how their supervisory role fits in with the management structure in controlling the site safely
carry out risk assessments and understand the need for method statements
carry out effective site inductions, toolbox talks and method statement briefings
be able to monitor site activities effectively
understand the importance of timely intervention when bad practice is identified.
Assessment and Certification
The method of assessment will be by multiple-choice questions at the end of your SSSTS training courses, as well as being expected to be interactive during the course.
Certificates are valid for 5 years. However, due to continuing changes in legislation, technology, environmental management and cultural behaviour, it is recommended that refresher courses are undertaken within 3 years of completing the original course.
Delegates are required to attend both sessions, since without full attendance and achievement in the examination the Construction Site Supervisors’ Safety Certificate cannot be awarded.
Delegates must attend the days of their Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme courses in order and, where not on consecutive days, must complete the course within two weeks. Delegates unable to attend both days due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. certificated sickness) will need to enrol onto a new course in order to maintain continuity of learning outcomes and attend both days again.
This course is an ideal foundation for obtaining a basic understanding of health and safety duties and responsibilities for junior management. Upon successful completion of this course, a natural progression would be the five-day Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course. Existing site managers, agents, surveyors and persons holding positions of managerial control should attend the five-day SMSTS course.
