SSSTS-R Course Detail
The SSSTS refresher course will update your health and safety knowledge and provide you with a thorough overview of legislative changes and their impact in the workplace. It will enable you to fulfil your responsibilities regarding health, safety, welfare and the environment on a construction site and implement all updated health, safety, welfare and environmental legislation affecting your supervisory role.
The SSSTS refresher course is only for delegates who have previously passed the two-day Site supervision safety training scheme (SSSTS) course and can provide proof of successful attendance.
If a delegate cannot provide a copy of their certificate, the online card checker can be used to establish if a delegate currently holds a valid SSSTS certificate.
If an individual cannot be located on the system and no evidence of their certificate can be found, they will have to attend the full Site supervision safety training scheme (SSSTS) course.
Failure to attend the refresher course prior to the expiry of an existing certificate will require the delegate to re-enter the scheme by completing the full Site supervision safety training scheme (SSSTS) course if they wish to remain in the scheme.
Delegates must be competent in English at site supervisor level.
Site supervision safety training scheme (SSSTS) Refresher Course
The two-day Site supervision safety training scheme (SSSTS) refresher course aims to bring health and safety knowledge up-to-date, as well as giving a thorough overview of the legislative changes and their impact in the workplace.
The course includes a wide range of topics which have been affected by changes to procedures, and builds upon the material in the original course.
To help site supervisors to:
- Supervise health and safety on site in accordance with current legal provisions and within the context of their role
- Develop an understanding of responsibility and accountability for site health, safety and welfare of workers on site
- Recognise that a safe site is efficient, economical, productive and environmentally friendly.
There is a mandatory examination paper for this course consisting of 25 questions, selected by CITB, covering all aspects of the course.
The examination pass mark is 80% (24 out of 30).
The paper consists of 22 multiple choice questions and three short written questions. There are four safety critical questions in each exam paper. The delegate must answer all four of these questions correctly to pass the exam. The multiple choice questions are worth 1 point each, whereas written questions can score between 1-3 marks.
The exam paper forms the basis of assessment of whether or not a delegate has successfully achieved a satisfactory level of understanding to be awarded the Site supervision safety training scheme refresher (SSSTS-R) certificate.
The examination lasts for 30 minutes and must be completed within this time.
Delegates are permitted to use the Construction site supervision (GE706) publication for the last ten minutes of the examination period.
Course delegates can re-sit assessments at the next possible opportunity in accordance with CITB rules. Delegates are not automatically re-entered for re-sits, so it is incumbent on the delegate to notify the course administrator of their 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.
Any re-sits authorised will be in accordance with the following CITB (the accrediting body) scheme rules:
Where a delegate has passed the trainer’s review and gained between 70%–77% (21, 22 or 23 out of 30) in the examination or has achieved the 80% pass rate but failed the safety critical questions, the delegate may re-sit the examination. This can either be on the same day or by resitting the exam by attending another course on the final day within a 90-day period (the delegate is not obliged to re-do the day’s course).
The training provider must make the arrangements with the delegate and ensure that the same examination paper is not used twice.
A charge may be made to the delegate; however, this fee is left entirely to the discretion of the training provider. The training provider may also have additional costs to be recovered from the delegate and this should be agreed in advance.
Subsequent arrangements will be at the delegate’s own expense.
Should a delegate fail the re-sit, they will be offered to take the SSSTS/SSSTS-R course again.
When a delegate scores less than 67% (20 correct answers out of 30) in the final examination, the delegate must attend the full SSSTS/SSSTS-R course again before they are allowed to re-sit the examination.
