Course Information

SSSTS Refresher Course Overview

This one-day refresher course is for delegates who have previously passed the two-day Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course and can provide proof of successful attendance. 

It aims to bring health and safety knowledge up-to-date, as well as giving a thorough overview of the legislative changes and their impact in the workplace.

The course includes a wide range of topics which have been affected by changes to procedures, and builds upon the material in the original course.

SSSTS Refresher Aims and Objectives

To help site supervisors to:

  • supervise health and safety on site in accordance with current legal provisions and within the context of their role
  • develop an understanding of responsibility and accountability for site health, safety and welfare of workers on site
  • recognise that a safe site is efficient, economical, productive and environmentally friendly.

Entry requirements

The refresher course is only for delegates who have previously passed the two-day Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course and can provide proof of successful attendance.

If a delegate cannot provide a copy of their certificate, the online card checker can be used to establish if a delegate currently holds a valid SSSTS certificate. If an individual cannot be located on the system and no evidence of their certificate can be found, they will have to attend the full Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course.

Failure to attend the refresher course prior to the expiry of an existing certificate will require the delegate to re-enter the scheme by completing the full Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) course if they wish to remain in the scheme.

Delegates must be competent in English at site supervisor level.

Learner Numbers

The minimum number of delegates per course is 4.  The maximum number of delegates per course is 20.  These are stipulated by the awarding body and are not subject to appeal.

Assessment

Assessment will be by an exam paper at the end of the course.

Exam Details

The examination paper is compulsory and consists of 25 questions, selected by CITB, covering all aspects of the course.

The examination pass mark is 80% (24 out of 30)

The paper consists of 22 multiple choice questions and 3 short written questions. There are 4 safety critical questions in each exam paper. The delegate must get all 4 of these questions correct to pass the exam. The multiple choice questions are worth 1 point each, whilst written questions can score between 1-3 marks.

The exam paper forms part of the overall assessment as to whether or not a delegate has successfully achieved a satisfactory level of understanding to be awarded the Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme - Refresher (SSSTS-R) certificate.

The examination lasts for 30 minutes and must be completed within this time.

Delegates are permitted to use Construction site supervision (GE 706) publication for the last ten minutes of the examination period.

Resit Procedure

Where a delegate has achieved between 70%-77% (21, 22 or 23 out of 30) in the examination or has achieved the 80% pass rate but failed the safety critical questions, the delegate may re-sit the examination.  This can either be on the same day or be resitting the exam by attending another course on the final day within a 90 day period (the delegate is not obliged to re-do the day’s course).

The training provider must make arrangements with the delegate and ensure that the same examination paper is not used twice.

Subsequent arrangements will be at the delegate’s own expense.

Should a delegate fail the re-sit, they will be offered to take the SSSTS-R course again.

When a delegate scores less than 67% (20 correct answers out of 30) in the final examination, the delegate must attend the full SSSTS-R course again before they are allowed to re-sit the examination.

 

Certification

You will receive a CITB SSSTS Refresher digital PDF Certificate valid for 5 years.

To ensure you keep your qualification valid, you must attend the 1 day SSSTS Refresher course before the expiry date of your SSSTS certificate (there is no grace period available).
