The SSSTS Course
This two-day course is intended for those who have, or are about to acquire, supervisory responsibilities. It provides supervisors with an understanding of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, as well as their legal responsibilities relevant to their work activities. It will highlight the requirement to promote health and safety to supervise effectively.
This course is endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group as the standard training for all supervisors working on UKCG sites and, as such, the course must be delivered as laid out in the following programme.
2. Aims and objectives
The course aims to ensure that all those given supervisory responsibilities understand:
why they are carrying out their identified duties
what is expected of them and
to ensure that they contribute to the safety of the workplace.
At the end of the course delegates will be able to:
understand the problems of the industry
have an understanding of how health and safety law is structured and how it applies to supervisors
identify how their supervisory role fits in with the management structure in controlling the site safely
carry out risk assessments and understand the need for method statements
carry out effective site inductions, toolbox talks and method statement briefings
be able to monitor site activities effectively
understand the importance of timely intervention when bad practice is identified.
The method of assessment will be by multiple-choice questions at the end of the course as well as being expected to be interactive during the course.
4. Delegate numbers
The maximum number of delegates per course will be 20.
5. Course attendance
Delegates are required to attend both sessions, since without full attendance and achievement in the examination the Construction Site Supervisors’ Safety Certificate cannot be made.
Delegates must attend the days in order and, where not on consecutive days, must complete the course within two weeks. Delegates unable to attend both days due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. certificated sickness) will need to enrol onto a new course in order to maintain continuity of learning outcomes and attend both days again.
