Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) – HS19

As one of the most highly respected qualifications for supervisors, the CITB accredited SSSTS course helps develop knowledge, awareness and understanding of legal, moral and social responsibilities in respect of health, safety and welfare on construction sites for site supervisors.

“I find training is normally boring. Half day is difficult let alone 3 days and yet the trainer somehow made it continuously fun and enjoyable aswell as informative”

DH, Frome YMCA

“Our trainer was really helpful and interesting. He answered our questions really well and guided us when we needed it. I feel much more up to date on my First Aid.”

GP, Glastonbury YMCA

“The trainer was so lovely. Very articulate. Felt safe asking him silly questions. He had a lot of stories to tell which helped explain and me remember First Aid. His safeguarding was spot on too. 10/10”

TE, Bristol YMCA
