The Construction Industry Training Board has been in business for many years, supporting the construction industry and providing outstanding quality courses and qualifications to help keep the industry as safe as possible. One of these courses is known as the SSSTS Site Supervisor course. This is short for Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme. As the name would suggest it is aimed at those people who have a supervisory role on a construction site. The course covers case studies, presentations and working individually as well as part of a group. The content of the course focuses on the Health and Safety at Work Act, the supervisory role the person will have in terms of occupational health, and a range of issues that a site supervisor can come into contact with every day on a construction site.
Those who successfully complete the course will gain the 3 Construction Skills Site Safety Plus Certificate. The knowledge gained on the course is ideal for those who are going to move up the ladder into this role as well as those who already have such a role.
Does this type of knowledge prevent all potential accidents?
In reality it would be very difficult if not impossible to prevent every single potential accident or hazard from arising on a construction site. While most sites are incredibly safe, thanks to training courses such as these and the people who take them, there are circumstances in which hazards may still crop up.
The more people who are trained to recognise such hazards and deal with them before any potential accidents can occur, the safer the construction industry will continue to be.
