What is the CITB SSSTS Course?

The aim of the Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) is to achieve a broad understanding of construction site health and safety matters, book a place on our CITB Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) training course which can be completed remotely online or in various classroom venues.

This training programme is known as the industry standard for any employees who work in a supervisory position on UKCG sites; it is approved and endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group and is an absolute must for any construction professionals who are responsible for their own set of workers.

After successful completion of the SSSTS course, the delegate will reinforce their existing skills regarding relevant health and safety legislation, current guidance and best practice. In addition, the individual will also refresh their understanding of H&S, welfare and the environment.

There are no previous qualifications required to take this course.
