Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) Two Day Course

Overview

The SSSTS course is 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 to supervise effectively. The SSSTS course is endorsed by Build UK (formerly the United Kingdom Contractors Group) as the standard training for all supervisors working on their sites.

Who should attend?

Site supervisors or those with supervisory responsibilities would benefit from the SSSTS course.

Duration

The SSSTS course lasts 2 days.

Aims and Objectives

The SSSTS course aims 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.

Outcomes

On successful completion of the SSSTS course, delegates will:

  • 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.

Delivery

The method of assessment will be by multiple-choice questions at the end of the SSSTS course as well as being expected to be interactive during the course.

Attendance

Delegates are required to attend both sessions, since without full attendance and achievement in the examination the Construction Site Supervisors’ Safety (SSSTS) Certificate cannot be made.

Delegates must attend the days in order and, where not on consecutive days, must complete the SSSTS 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 SSSTS course in order to maintain continuity of learning outcomes and attend both days again.

Progression

This course is an ideal foundation for obtaining a basic understanding of health and safety duties and responsibilities for junior management and upon successful completion of this course, a natural progression would be the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course.

Existing site managers, agents, surveyors and persons holding positions of managerial control should attend the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course.

End-of-Course Examination Rules

The examination paper is compulsory and consists of 25 multiple-choice questions covering all aspects of the SSSTS course, written and selected by CSkills Awards. It forms the basis of assessment as to whether or not a delegate has successfully achieved a satisfactory level of understanding to be awarded the Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) certificate.

The examination lasts for 30 minutes and must be completed within this time. Delegates are permitted to use the GE706 Site Safety Simplified publication for the last ten minutes of the examination period. The examination pass mark is 72%.
