The CITB 2-day Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) is a highly regarded health and safety training course within the construction industry.It is available for current and prospective site supervisors, and is taken by more than 40,000 people each year.
The SSSTS health and safety course is approved by CITB, because it helps site supervisors (and anyone wanting to become one) to develop:
·a better understanding of the legal, moral and social responsibilities of their role
·To understand the problems of the Industry, accidents, itinerant workforce
·to understand how the supervisor role fits into the site management structure.
·How to communicate health and safety on site, including CDM, working at height, toolbox talks.
·to identify and avoid potential hazards on site, including COSHH
The highly-interactive method of delivery of this course makes it interesting, and it allows for discussion and understanding of the subject areas together with engaging, practical exercises.
