The Site Supervisors' Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) is a popular course for those who are undertaking a supervisory role within a construction company.
The SSSTS refresher course is for delegates who have previously passed the two day Site Supervisor's Safety Training Scheme course and aims to bring health and safety knowledge up to date, as well as giving a thorough overview of the legislative changes and their impact in the workplace.
Who Should Attend
This one day course is intended for those who currently hold the Site Supervisors' Safety Training Scheme certificate and now need to update their skills and knowledge in line with current legislation and maintain their SSSTS qualification.
The refresher course aims to:
- Raise awareness of current trends within the Health and Safety Executive direction of enforcement.
- Improve awareness of recent development in construction, legislation and health and
safety, welfare and environmental issues.
- Identify measures that will assist the practical implementation of responsibilities
established by new legislation and working practices.
At the end of the period of training, delegates will be able to:

- Be aware of and able to implement new guidance and industry best practice affected by changes.
