A large number of our delegates have been questioning us as to why we do not offer evening classes? In truth we didn’t really have an answer for them other than to say we weren’t sure if there was sufficient demand to justify running them. At the time that was the best answer we could give however, after some discussion throughout the company we had to agree that we were not actually sure that was necessarily true at all.
Being innovative as we are (after all we were the first to bring you weekend CITB training!) and being conscious that it is you (our delegates) that drive demand we have decided that we really need to challenge our perceptions here, so by popular demand we have decided to trial the running of CITB: Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) evening courses from September through to November 2019. The courses will run for four hours per evening on four consecutive days enabling us gauge demand and determine whether we should consider running the full suite of CITB: Site Safety Plus courses in the same manner.
The SSSTS two day course is intended for those who already fulfill or are about to take up supervisory responsibilities on a construction site and provides with a good ability to understand health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, as well as their legal responsibilities relevant to their work activities on site.
The course highlights the requirement to promote health and safety through effective supervision and is endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group (UKCG) as the standard training for all supervisors working on sites within the UK.We will be running this course alongside our standard block week SSSTS and our weekend SSSTS courses and for those individuals looking to progress their career’s we would suggest that the five day CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) training course would be the next logical step.
