This course is intended to give site supervisors a clear understanding of how health and safety affects their role and the practical steps they can take to ensure a safe site.

The Site Supervision Safety (SSSTS) Training Scheme can be used as a precursor to attendance on the five-day Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course and is endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group (UKCG) as the standard training for all supervisors working on UKCG sites.

Duration: This course runs over two consecutive days. Delegates are required to attend both days to be eligible for certification. Delegates must attend the days 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. Delegates who do not complete the two full days and pass the end of course examination will not be issued with a certificate.

Assessment: Assessment will be by multiple-choice questions at the end of the course. Delegates are also expected to be interactive during the course.

Certification: On successful completion of this course each delegate will receive a CITB certificate valid for 5 years.
