CITB Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS)


This two-day site supervision safety training scheme (SSSTS) course is designed for those who have, or are about to acquire, supervisory responsibilities.

This course is an ideal, practical foundation for attaining an understanding of health and safety duties and responsibilities for supervising in a construction environment. Through an understanding of legal responsibilities, supervisors can better contribute to the instruction, supervision and monitoring of safety on site.

The course covers all relevant legislation and other aspects which affect safe working in the building, construction and civil engineering industries. It highlights the need for risk assessment in the workplace, the implementation of the necessary control measures, and adequate communication to sustain a health and safety culture among the workforce.

The SSSTS course is endorsed by Build UK and exceeds the standard set by CITB for construction supervisors training.

Course Content

To help site managers 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.

Examination Method

Assessment will be by an end of course examination and the trainer review. The delegate must pass the exam and pass all three elements of the trainer review. We suggest you share this information with the delegates at the beginning of the course.

The examination demonstrates to external bodies that the certificate is only awarded to successful delegates following both an assessment and examination. The trainer review demonstrates engagement, collaborative working and listening skills – key elements of becoming a supervisor.

Entry Requirements

Delegates should hold, or be about to hold, the role of a supervisor. Delegates must be competent in English at site supervisor level.
