To achieve a broad understanding of construction site health and safety matters, book a place on our CITB Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) training course in Chelmsford, Essex. This training programme is known as the industry standard for any employees who work in a supervisory position on UKCG sites; it is approved and endorsed by the United Kingdom Contractors Group an is an absolute must for any construction professionals who are responsible for their own set of workers.

These individuals will learn all about the latest health and safety procedures, be brought up to date with current legislation, and will cover topics such as today’s environmental issues and employers’ legal responsibilities. Regardless of their current knowledge, candidates will leave their SSSTS training course with an invaluable in-depth understanding of the challenges associated with running a construction site and how they can work together with their employees to identify hazards and minimise risks.
Once candidates have completed their SSSTS training, they can step up to the five day Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS), which is another course offered by the expert trainers here at Target Zero.
