Our 2 Day Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) Course is part of the CITB Site Safety Plus group of courses which provides construction industry employees with clear training on the health and safety requirements relevant to their role on site.
The SSSTS Courses London is aimed at anyone in a supervisory role within the construction industry and meets the requirements of the BuildUK (formerly UK Contractors Group) Health and Safety Training Standard. All BuildUK member companies e.g. Balfour Beatty, Mace, BAM, Kier, Osbourne, Skanska etc. will require working Site Supervisors to hold the SSSTS or an equivalent qualification if you are working on their projects. However, please note that if you are a non-working supervisor or foreman, the 5 Day Site Management Safety Training Scheme course will be more relevant to your needs because this course is aimed at those looking for preparation for a management position, which you can find further information about on our website.

The assessment process consists of a series of group exercises during the course and a final examination on the second day. The final examination on the second day is a 30-minute, multiple choice paper. In the event of a delegate failing to achieve the required score on the final examination, we will allow them to attend the final day of a later SSSTS course London for additional SSSTS training and resit the examination free of charge.
The SSSTS course London takes place over 2 days, with a total of 16 hours of training. In this time, attendees will learn about important health and safety legislations, industry best practice and how to carry out effective risk assessment and writing method statements, plus more! Due to this, it is essential that delegates attend both days in the correct order and arrive at 09.00 sharp for the ultimate experience. Whilst most SSSTS courses start at 09.00, please note that specific details of start times will be provided during the booking process, and you must ensure that you are available for the duration of the SSSTS training in order to be successful. If you have previously attended SSSTS training, but would like to renew your knowledge, refresher courses are also available.
All existing site managers, agents, surveyors and persons holding positions of managerial control should attend the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course instead of undergoing SSSTS training, which you can find more information about on our website.
