How Can the SSTS Course Help me?
The Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course is aimed at construction operatives who already have, or are about to acquire, supervisory responsibilities.
The SSSTS Training qualification gives current and new supervisors an understanding of health, safety, welfare, environmental and legal issues to protect their workforce. It serves to highlight the importance of promoting safety in order to supervise in an effective and safe manner.
