Our CITB Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) training course in Chelmsford, Essex is designed to give attendees a broad overview of their responsibilities for health and safety on construction sites. Approved and endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group, the SSSTS training course is regarded as the standard training for employees who fulfil a supervisory role on UKCG sites.
During SSSTS training, construction supervisors will develop a clear understanding of what’s involved in adhering to health and safety legislation and managing a safe site with the support of their employees.
Who is the SSTS training course suitable for?
The SSSTS training course has been created to provide existing supervisors, or those who are just entering into a supervisory role, with in-depth knowledge of health and safety legislation and procedures. Anyone who wishes to learn about all aspects of health and safety management, from environmental issues through to employers’ legal responsibilities, will benefit from a place on our SSSTS training course in Essex or any of the other locations we service throughout the UK.
SSSTS training is a perfect entry point for those who have no experience in dealing with health and safety regulations. It can also be used as a stepping stone to the five day Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS), which delivers more in-depth coverage of the role that health and safety plays in the workplace.
