The supervisor safety training course is only two days in duration. Even the busiest supervisor can spare two days out of their schedule to ensure they have the proper qualification to do their job. Although the supervisor safety training course is only two days long, it packs in all the key areas of study that a site supervisor will need to be effective. These include: identifying potential hazards, working with electricity, working in confined spaces, and with COSHH. It also covers how to supervise effectively and how to work in conjunction with the Site Manager in order to preserve site safety.
Keep qualification in date with a refresher
One of the most recent developments concerning the supervisor safety training course is that a refresher option is now available. This is a real boon to supervisors that already hold the qualification, because instead of having to redo the full two day course every five years, they can now reduce the cost and time of keeping their qualification in date, by completing a single day refresher. Refreshers must be completed near to the end of or after the five year validity period of the supervisor safety training course, but before the six month grace period, awarded by the CITB runs out. If in doubt contact the CITB or you training service provider for conformation.

The supervisor safety training course had no formal qualification prerequisites. This means you do not have to have reached a certain level in your studies before sitting the course. You will however, be expected to have a good level of written and spoken English in order to benefit from the teaching delivery on the course.
