WHO IS IT FOR?

Also known informally as the ‘Site Supervisor Course’, SSSTS training given is aimed to ensure candidates gain a thorough understanding of their legal responsibilities, and as such, can better contribute to the instruction, supervision and monitoring of safety on site.

Successful candidates will receive a CITB Site Safety Plus certificate, which is issued on completion. This is valid for 5 years. Please note that there is no physical ‘SSSTS Card’; however, you can list your Site Safety Plus certificate qualification when applying for further qualifications.

  • What is expected of site supervisors, including occupational health issues that arise within the construction sector

  • An understanding of how health and safety law is structured, and how the role of a supervisor links in with the role of a site manager when controlling site safety

  • Risk assessments – how to carry these out and why method statements are a legal requirement

  • Fire prevention and control, control of hazardous substances, CDM (Construction Design Management) Regulations, Working at Height, PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), manual handling, accidents and first aid
