Five benefits of an SSSTS course
Short and specialised
or Site Safety Supervisors Training Scheme courses are so useful, firstly because they are specifically tailored to include all the necessary health and safety information for the supervisors’ role. Topics addressed in the course include the Health and Safety at Work Act, site hazards such as working at height, confined spaces and COSHH, delivering toolbox talks, how to deal with subcontractors and health issues that may arise on site. By being tailored so particularly to the supervisors’ role, SSSTS courses
are also short as they omit all the other non specific information that health and safety courses can contain.
