Note: Due to the current Coronavisus COVID-19 pandemic, there are no conventional course dates programmmed during the immediate future. However, remote delivery of the CITB Health and Safety Awareness course is now possible under CITB’s “Appendix Q – Emergency Training Provision Scheme Rules”, Click here to link to the Online Delivery SSSTS Refresher course page.
The CITB SSSTS Refresher is for Site Supervisors who hold an existing SSSTS award. The SSSTS Refresher course is a relatively recent addition to the Site Safety Plus range of courses. Before the introduction of this refresher course it was necessary for existing SSSTS certificate holders to re-sit the whole 2 day SSSTS course however, following the introduction of the SSTSS Refresher course in 2012 the 1 day refresher option is now available.
Course prices per delegate vary but a typical price per delegate is in the region of £190.
The SSSTS Refresher is aimed at Site Supervisors and those in supervisory role on site, who hold an existing SSSTS certificate. Anybody attending this one day course will need to demonstrate that they have successfully passed the SSSTS two day course.
The rules for the SSSTS Refresher courses are similar to those of the SMSTS Refresher course. The course can be taken up to 6 months prior to the expiry date of the existing certification, but not later than this date. Where this requirements has been met the Award will become valid again for a further 5 years, once the SSSTS Refresher course has been completed and passed. If you do not carry out a refresher course before the expiry date you will need to resit the full course to re-qualify.
Key elements included on the SSSTS Refresher course are:
• Changes to legislation and other developments in construction relating to health, safety, welfare and environmental issues.
• Current HSE enforcement trends.
• Accident trends and working practices designed to improve safety on site.
• Identification of measures and best practices, which will assist the practical day to day implementation of responsibilities on site resulting from new legislation and working practices.
To pass the SSSTS Refresher course, delegates must successfully pass a multiple choice assessment at the end of the course.
Successful candidates will be re-qualified on completion of the SSSTS Refresher course.
