Course Title: CITB (SSSTS) - Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme

Duration: 2 Days

Content;  The 2-day SSSTS (Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme) training course is aimed at team leaders, foremen, gangers, first-line managers and supervisors with supervisory responsibilities and a need to understand their legal duties.

The content of the course will cover how to deal with the following:

  • 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.
  • How to carry out site inductions, toolbox talks and method statement briefings.
  • Understanding the need for proactive and reactive monitoring.

The SSSTS course is an ideal foundation for attaining a basic understanding of health & safety duties and responsibilities for junior management in construction work.

Assessment Method:

Full attendance is essential, and candidates will be expected to actively participate. Continual assessment will take place during the course. There is also a multiple-choice assessment at the end of the course.
