Responsive image

The SSSTS (Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme) course is about making sure that you understand your roles and responsibilities as a construction site supervisor and the important role that site supervisors and foremen have on a modern-day, highly regulated construction site.

The two-day SSSTS course (Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme) is ideal for a person who is currently a site supervisor or a foreman, or about to be promoted to the job role of a site supervisor or a site foreman.

The SSSTS course is written and accredited through the CITB. The SSSTS course content is regularly updated by the CITB to reflect the changes in both the regulations and modern methods of construction. The course is about proving to your current or potential employer that you are competent at supervising staff on a civil engineering/construction project.

The SSSTS course is widely recognised and respected throughout the construction sector and members of the influential United Kingdom Contractors Group (UKCG), whose members include Balfour Beatty, Bam Construct, Costain, Galliford Try, Keir Group, Skanska and many others, will not allow Site Supervisors or Foreman to work on their sites unless they have passed the SSSTS course. Both the Chartered Institute of Building and the Institute of Civil Engineers recognise the SSSTS course as valid proof of a Site Supervisor's competence.

The SSSTS course content covers the following areas:

  • The Management of health & safety on site in accordance with current legal provisions, within the context of being a Site supervisor.
  • CDM regulations
  • Health & safety and the law
  • Hazardous substances - COSHH
  • Safe systems of work
  • Occupational Health
  • Fire prevention/control and other emergencies procedures
  • Presentation skills (toolbox talks)
  • Intervention skills and behaviour
  • Accidents and first aid
  • Management of working at height
  • The SSSTS course costs £295.00 + vat and discounts are available for multiple candidates and included in the cost of your course are all the registration and certifications fees and course materials that include the following official CITB publications:

    • GE706 Site Supervision Simplified
    • GT700 Tool Box Talks

    If you are employed by a company that pays a levy to the CITB, your company will be able to claim a grant of at least £100.00 when you attend the SSSTS course, reducing the cost of the course substantially. We will administer the grant application process for you and make sure that you get the grant money you are entitled to. When booking please let us know you would like us to claim grant on your behalf and provide us with your employer's CITB registration number. All of our SSSTS courses are delivered at specialist training venues across the UK.

    All the SSSTS courses are led by trainers who have years of ‘on-site’ experience and as such, they are able to relate to the candidates current working conditions and discuss relevant scenarios with candidates that bring the SSSTS course alive through group discussions.

    To be eligible to attend the SSSTS course you need to have a good understanding of English as written assessments form part of the course. On passing the SSSTS course you will receive the official CITB SSSTS Site Safety Plus certificate that is valid for a period of five years.
