SSSTS Refresher course – aims/objectives
The SSSTS Refresher course has been tailored to give delegates an updated understanding of their obligations as a site supervisor in accordance with legislation and industry changes. They will be educated on their moral and legal responsibilities, their accountabilities for site health, safety and welfare, how to monitor safety practices for groups of operatives and how to recognise the key qualities of a safe site environment (efficiency, cost-effectiveness and productivity).
SSSTS Refresher course structure
The SSSTS Refresher course is highly interactive, requiring delegates to participate in classroom discussions, case studies, group work and individual/group presentations. Once they have completed all of the classroom-based content, delegates will then be assessed via a selection of multiple choice tests in order to pass the course.
Who is the SSSTS Refresher course suitable for?
The SSSTS Refresher course has been designed specifically for delegates in a supervisory role within the building/construction sector, such as foremen, gangers and team leaders. In order to qualify for refresher training, they must have already passed the original two-day SSSTS course and have certifiable proof of attendance.
SSSTS Refresher course outcomes
By the end of the SSSTS Refresher course, delegates will be knowledgeable on the latest legislative updates regarding site safety, be able to implement new guidance and best industry practice and have a greater awareness of their individual supervisory duties.
Six to eight weeks after completion of the SSSTS Refresher course, delegates will receive an accredited certificate, which will validate their qualification for a further five years. If delegates do not complete their Refresher training before the certificate’s expiration date, they will need to retake the original SSSTS course in full.
