The subject of supervisor safety training is high on the agenda for most construction organizations. The major Contractors Group (MCG) now require all site supervisors to be trained to the standard of the CITB accredited Site Safety Plus SSSTS course.
Supervisors Safety Courses
These are available in most towns and cities throughout the UK via hundreds of established, accredited and regularly audited health and safety training organizations.
The supervisor course will provide students with the knowledge required to effectively supervise on a construction site in addition to making them aware of their own responsibilities. The supervising course covers health and safety at work acts and legislation, risk assessments in all manner of construction circumstances, statistics and information relating to causes, types and numbers of construction related accidents and injuries, the health and safety legal system.
The site supervisor course will also cover elements of safety which include working at height, demolition, occupational health, fire, electricity, confined spaces and the control of contractors.
With respect to furthering your career and moving on to a position of site manager or project manager, a more senior safety course exists which is within the same site safety scheme and is called the 5 day SMSTS course.
Both the SSSTS and SMSTS courses are available via our website in most towns and cities. Search for a course in your area, compare prices and book online today!
