The SSSTS – Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme course aims to ensure delegates have an overview of their responsibilities for health and safety on construction sites. 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 Supervisors 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.
The course focuses on
- Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974
- Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015
- Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
