In the construction industry, every existing supervisor and people are about to grab that position are required to under go SSSTS which is Supervisor’s Safety Training Scheme and it is a requirement and is considered as industry standards which just goes to show the importance of the training.
One important thing that you need to know about SSSTS is that the certificate of the program expires after three years and the reason is that there are always new things coming up in the industry which supervisors should be aware of and should follow but if their training would be old, how will they ever cope and perform their job well? Essex SMSTS training is also an important kind of training that is taken by people who are responsible for handling and directing a workforce and it is provided by many institutes. The thing is that the construction industry changes a lot and there are new kinds of technology, working method, projects and what not so when the industry changes so much, the regulations, health hazards and rules change too but if a supervisor would have training from 3 years ago, how would he/she cope? This is where SSSTS refresher courses come in and do their magic.
During this refresher course, the attendees are provided with updated information about everything that is included in their job. Occupational health hazards are pretty serious and a lot in the construction industries so it is necessary to know about them and since new ones emerge all the time, this refresher course focuses on the new health hazards and highlights the old ones too so that the attendees can jog their memory and retain important information about risk assessment, regulations, recognizing and reporting occupational health hazards etc.
