SSSTS Course (CITB)
The Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course has been designed to meet the needs of site supervisors within the construction industry. This course is for first line managers – those who have to, or are about to, acquire supervisory responsibilities. The course aims to highlight the need for risk assessment in the workplace, implementation of the necessary control measures and adequate communication and monitoring in order to provide and maintain positive standards of health, safety and welfare on a construction site.
The course is designed to ensure that candidates have an overview and understanding of their responsibility for supervising and helping to oversee safety in a construction site environment.
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.
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
Control of contractors
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 or been absent from the assessment with good reason. You are not automatically re-entered, so you must notify the course administrator of your intention to re-sit by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. If it is agreed, you will receive confirmation of the decision once your request has been considered.
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 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 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.
