  • Carry out effective premises inductions, toolbox talks, and method statement briefings
  • Be able to monitor site activities effectively
  • Understand the importance of timely intervention when bad practice is identified



At the end of this workshop, the delegates will carry out a multiple-choice test. They will also be involved in interactive sessions during the workshop.



Where a delegate has achieved 70% in the exercise and trainer’s review and gained between 70%-77% (21-23 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 test. Retesting can either be on the same day or by 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 class). o99 Training Academy must make the arrangements with the delegate and ensure that the same examination paper it’s not used twice.

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