SSSTS - Some frequently asked questions
The reasons for doing a SSSTS
Health and safety provision is now an essential part of all occupations and construction is no exception. In fact, in such a high risk occupation as construction, health and safety is always on the fore front of everyone’s mind. This is why there are health and safety specific training courses available. It is necessary to have courses customised to this industry because of the particular potential hazards such as fire, electricity, demolition, confined space and COSHH. Completing a course that familiarises you with the risks and how to minimise their effect on your team such as the SSSTS
, is an excellent idea.
How to find the closest course to you?
courses are run all across the UK. You may wish to choose a course close to home to cut down on commuting times. It may work better for you to pick one close to your work location, if you need to pop in and check what has been happening. It is possible to locate a course by independently searching on the internet, but remember you will have to call each provider that you find to confirm availability and price. A much more efficient way of doing this is to contact an online service provider. With one call from you, they can locate the closest courses and then compare them to see which one has places left and which one has the best price.
How soon can I get this course done?
As there are no pre-requisites to the course, the speed on which you can get it done, depends on the speed of which you can find a course suitable for you that still has places. This is another reason to contact an online service provider. It has been know for clients to get onto a course the next day by doing this. Please note you will be expected to have a good grasp of written and spoken English to do the SSSTS course.
Is the SSSTS
course right for me?
As there are a number of CITB courses available, making sure you get the right one for the stage of your career you are at, is vital. Many delegates often get confused between the SSSTS and the SMSTS. Just remember that the SMSTS is a longer course, designed specifically for managers, while the SSSTS
is only two days and is for those that look after a team of workers but are not running the entire site.
Booking a SSSTS course.
If you have access to either a phone or the internet, booking a SSSTS course could not be easier. Remember to save your self time by contacting an online service provider. In this way, with your one phone call or email, you can get access to the best dates and cheapest courses in your location. As good online service providers charge the same course price as going direct to the trainer themselves, you can be sure you will pay no extra but will save a lot of time!
