SSSTS Training

This two-day 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.

This course is endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group as the standard training for all supervisors working on UKCG sites and, as such, the course must be delivered as laid out in the following programme:

Aims & Objectives

The 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.

At the end of the course delegates will be able to:

  • 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.

3. Assessment

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

6. Course 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.
