What is Site Safety Plus (SSP)?
Site Safety Plus is a comprehensive suite of construction courses for people in building, civil engineering and allied industries.
Site Safety Plus Training Courses
The Site Safety Plus (SSP) course offerings include everything you need know about safely working on-site. The courses are designed to give everyone from operative to senior manager the skills they need to progress through the construction industry.
Site Safety Plus courses are important in the construction industry because they provide the necessary skills to maintain a safe workforce. With the proper training, construction workers will be able to identify potential hazards on site and take the necessary precautions to prevent accidents from happening.
In-person (classroom) and Online CITB Courses
Site Safety Plus courses are delivered by skilled and experienced instructors in-person in a classroom or online (instructor-led) using video technology such as Zoom or Skype. Site Safety Plus qualifications will not only ensure that your workers are using the appropriate safety practices, but they will also enhance performance and improve professionalism and competitive edge.
The Health and Safety Awareness course is a one-day awareness course which covers topics such as health and safety law, responsibilities, accident prevention, risks and control measures.
The SSSTS course is a two-day Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme which covers topics such as the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA), regulations, approved code of practice (ACOP), H&S legal system, construction accidents and risk assessments. The training course is designed for first line managers looking to continue or take on a supervisory role within the construction industry.
The SMSTS course is a five-day Site Management Safety Training Scheme which covers topics such as legal responsibilities, health and safety hazards on site, managing site inductions and risk assessments.
Temporary Works training courses assist individuals working on-site who have responsibility for managing temporary works or are involved with temporary works. Training provides a broad understanding of industry best practice, including good safety risk management and gives confidence to supervisors, managers and those who engage with contractors, to reach an assessed standard of knowledge.
The Directors Role for Health and Safety training focuses on helping candidates recognise the implications that come with failing to meet the health and safety laws be they financial, economic or human. The course gives attendees a wealth of knowledge that can be used at senior management level within the construction industry.
- Leadership & Management Practice in Construction (CITB Assured)
The purpose of this CITB Leadership & Management Practice in Construction course is to develop knowledge and understanding of using leadership and management skills to ensure safety and quality requirements and appropriate standards of behaviour are met, when achieving project and work plans, as required by a practising or potential Team Leader or Site Supervisor.
The SEATS training course is designed to teach individuals and organisations about the benefits of good environmental management as well as demonstrating the process of how workers can take steps to improve their effect on the environment.
Prevent Accidents & Injuries on Site with CITB Courses
Accidents and injuries on site due to poor health and safety management can be costly. You will need to pay for the replacement and repair of the damaged equipment, as well as suffer the downtime while it is not operating. Also, you might need to pay a fine for breaching construction health and safety regulations as well as covering the medical costs of your employees if they make a claim. Ensuring that all of your employees have the right construction health and safety training by attending accredited CITB courses can be costly, but in the long run it is much better to make sure that all of your employees have the right training and qualifications to do their job safely.
Improve Construction Health and Safety & Performance on Site
It is important to make sure that all site managers, site supervisors and labourers who are working on a construction site are properly trained for the work that they are carrying out. When employees have the correct training for their job, this will improve their confidence and morale. They will have the confidence to carry out the job safely and successfully and they will also know that you value their contribution and well-being, because you have invested in their training.
