Our SSSTS course is accredited by the CITB and can be undertaken at one of our six Training Centre’s. New SSSTS courses start weekly and also run at weekends.

The Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course forms part of the Site Safety Plus scheme and is intended for individuals already fulfilling a supervisory role and those about to (or considering) taking up such a role, in the construction industry.

This SSSTS course is endorsed by Build UK as the standard training for all construction site supervisors. At the end of the course you will be able to implement all health, safety, welfare and environmental legislation affecting your daily work, implement new guidance and industry best practice, state your duties and responsibilities with regards to health, safety, welfare and the environment.

All of our courses are all inclusive so there are no hidden extra charges i.e. books, exams, etc.

The course is an ideal lead in for delegates who will go on to attend the 5-day site managers SMSTS Training course at a later stage of their career development.

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:

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 (Green) 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 training course syllabus

The main topics covered by the SSSTS training course syllabus will be best practice in areas such as:

Construction Accidents: types, numbers and immediate and underlying causes
Health and Safety Legal System
Acts, Regulations, Approved Codes of Practice and Guidance Notes
& Risk Assessment in areas such as:

Work at height
Occupational Health
Control of contractors
Confined Spaces

There is a 30 minute, 25 question, objective multiple-choice examination at the end of the course.
Successful candidates will be awarded the Site Safety Plus CITB Site Supervisor Safety Training Certificate

General Course delegates can re-sit assessments at the next possible opportunity if you have failed. You are not automatically re-entered, so you must notify the course administrator of your intention to re-sit by contacting If it is agreed, you will receive confirmation of the decision once your request has been considered.

Any re-sits authorised will be in accordance the 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.

The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB)

The CITB was established in 1964 and was one of a number of training boards covering UK industries. It was a non-departmental public body of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills until 2016 when it moved to the Department for Education. The activities of the CITB have been redefined by Statutory Instruments.

In 2003 the licence for the new construction industry Sector Skills Council (SSC) was awarded to to “ConstructionSkills”, a partnership between the CITB and the Construction Industry Council (CIC). The CITB became known as CITB-ConstructionSkills, or simply ConstructionSkills, for the most of the next 10 years.

In March 2013, it was announced that the organisation would drop brands such as CITB-ConstructionSkills, CSkills Awards and National Construction College and revert to its original CITB name as a result of industry feedback suggesting that multiple brands were causing confusion. In May 2017, the awarding body Cskills Awards was sold to another industry awarding body NOCN.
