  • CITB accredited
  • 2 days course
  • No hidden charges

This is an accredited CITB – Site Safety Plus course.

This two days course is designed for those who have, or are about to have, supervisory responsibilities. It provides site supervisors with an understanding of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, as well as their legal responsibilities relevant to their work activities. It will highlight the requirement to promote health and safety to supervise effectively.

The course is ideal for supervisors to learn about legal responsibilities regarding health, safety, welfare and environmental issues.

Course content and learning outcomes

The SSSTS course will cover the following topics:

  • The Health and Safety at Work Act
  • Specific site issues that challenge supervisors on a daily basis
  • Effective toolbox talks
  • Supervision of occupational health
  • Behavioural safety

The learning outcomes are to ensure that all those given supervisory responsibilities understand:

  • Why they are carrying out their identified duties
  • What is expected of them
  • To ensure that they contribute to the safety of the workplace
  • To understand the problems of the industry
  • Understand how health and safety law is structured and how it applies to supervisors
  • Identify how their supervisory role fits in with the management structure in controlling the site safely
  • Carry out risk assessments and understand the need for method statements
  • Carry out effective Premises inductions, toolbox talks and method statement briefings
  • Be able to monitor site activities effectively
  • Understand the importance of timely intervention when bad practice is identified

Attendance to both training days is mandatory. No delegates are allowed to enter the final assessment if they do not have full attendance.

At the end of this course delegates will undertake an assessment by multiple-choice questions as well as being involved in interactive sessions during the course.

Where a delegate has achieved 70% in the exercise and trainer’s review and gained between 70%-77% (21-23 out of 30) in the examination or has achieved the 80% pass rate but failed the safety critical questions, the delegate may re-sit the examination. This can either be on the same day or by resitting the exam by attending another course on the final day within a 90-day period (the delegate is not obliged to re-do the day’s course). Magic Training LTD must make the arrangements with the delegate and ensure that the same examination paper is not used twice.

When a delegate scores less than 67% (20 correct answers out of 30) in the final examination, the delegate must attend the full SSSTS course again before they are allowed to re-sit the examination.
