Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme Course (CITB)

Our SSSTS courses are accredited by the CITB and can be undertaken at one of our Training Centre’s in Central and South East England. New courses start weekly and also run at weekends.

The course is designed primarily for individuals with supervisory responsibilities on a construction site: first line managers, team leaders, site supervisors, foremen, etc and anybody that is intending to take up such responsibilities.

It is endorsed by Build UK as the standard training for all construction site supervisors and at the end of the course you will understand your legal health and safety duties and responsibilities as a site supervisor within the construction industry.

This training course forms part of the Site Safety Plus scheme and is intended for individuals already fulfilling or intending to take up supervisory responsibilities within the construction industry.

Site Safety Plus Scheme

The Site Safety Plus (SSP) scheme provides the construction industry with a suite of courses aimed at health and safety awareness and career development in order to maintain a safe workforce.

Here at Goldcross Training we offer the following courses that form part of the scheme:

Course Design

The courses are designed to give everyone from senior managers to operatives the skills they need to progress through the industry.  The starting point is a one-day Health and Safety Awareness (HSA) course, a qualification that underpins the issue of a CSCS Labourer Card, to the five-day Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS).  At Goldcross Training we aim to ensure that everyone benefits from the best possible training which is why we only use fully accredited and experienced instructors.

SSSTS Course Content

The Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course inolves: case studies/group work, classroom discussion, individual and or group presentations. Upon its completion you will have an understanding of:

  • The Health and Safety at Work Act, including CDM Regs
  • Safety management systems and risk assessments/method statements (RAMS)
  • Specific site issues and risks that challenge supervisors on a daily basis
  • Site set up and security
  • Effective toolbox talks
  • Supervision of occupational health
  • Behavioural safety

SSSTS Course Assessment

All CITB SSSTS course candidates are required to reach or exceed a minimum level of achievement throughout the course with assessment being determined by:

  • Attendance:  In order to achieve the learning objectives candidates must attend the complete course programme.
  • Case Study:  A case study exercise will be undertaken which will be reviewed by the course trainer.
  • Examination:  Course assessment consists of a test of 25 questions of which 4 require a short written response and are safety critical.  Delegates are required to achieve the pass rate of 80% (20 out of 25) and MUST get all 4 safety critical questions correct.

On successful completion of the SSSTS course and associated assessment candidates will be awarded the CITB: Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme certificate.  This certificate will remain extant for five years after which the course must be retaken in order for individuals to maintain qualification for a further 5 years.

SSSTS Course Re-Sit Policy

General course candidates can re-sit assessments at the next possible opportunity if they have failed or been absent from the assessment with good reason.  Candidates are not however automatically re-entered for assessments and they must notify the course administrator of their intention to re-sit by contacting at the earliest opportunity.  Candidates will be notified of available opportunities to undertake a re-sit once there request has been fully considered and where necessary approval has been granted by the awarding body.

There will be a fixed administration fee of £50 for each module to be re-attempted.

Any re-sits authorised will be in accordance the appropriate accrediting body scheme rules:

Cskills (SMSTS, SMSTS Refresher, SSSTS & SSSTS Refresher Courses)

Where a delegate has achieved 70% in the core exercises and the tutor’s review, and gained between 64% – 68% in the multiple-choice examination, the delegate may re-sit the multiple-choice examination by attending another course on the final day. Subsequent arrangements will be at the delegate’s own expense.

The training provider must make the arrangements with the delegate and ensure that the same examination is not used twice. The delegate must re-sit the examination within 90 days of the last day previously attended. A charge may be made to the delegate; however, this fee is left entirely to the discretion of the training provider. Should the delegate fail for a second time, that person will need to attend the full SMSTS course again. Delegates may only be given two chances of successfully achieving the Construction Site Manager’s Safety Certificate, after which an alternative course should be considered to match the delegate’s level of knowledge and understanding of health and safety on site.

When a delegate scores less than 64% (16 correct answers out of 25) in the final examination, the delegate must attend the full SMSTS course again before they are allowed to re-sit the examination.
