The aim of this course is to ensure that all those given supervisory responsibilities understand:

  • Why they are carrying out their identified duties
  • What is expected of them
  • That they contribute to the safety of the workplace
  • Understand the problems of the industry

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

  • Have an understanding of how health and safety law is structured and how it applies to supervisors
  • Identify how their role fits in with the management structure in controlling site safety
  • Carry out risk assessments and understand the need for method statements
  • Carry out effective site inductions, toolbox talks and method statement briefings
  • Monitor site activities effectively
  • Understand the importance of timely intervention when bad practice is identified

Delegates will be required to complete a multiple-choice assessment paper, as well as a scenario-based case study exercise for SSSTS including a method statement and risk assessment to test learning. This will be assessed via the trainer review alongside the new exam papers.

Revised exam papers include 4 safety critical questions which will need to be answered correctly by delegates to pass the exam. The papers also include new style questions as well as the traditional multiple choice, e.g. image questions and written question and answers. Marking guidance will be provided to trainers.

On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a CITB SSSTS Certificate that is valid for 5 years.

Who Should Attend?

Anybody who works in Construction / Civil Engineering at supervisory level, or is about to acquire supervisory responsibilities.
