Safety Trained Supervisor for Construction (STSC)

Safety Trained Supervisor for Construction (STSC)
Examination Preparation Workshop

1 Day / 0.7 CEUs

The STSC is intended for construction supervisors, managers, superintendents, forepersons, crew chiefs, and craftspeople who have responsibilities to maintain safe conditions and practices on construction job sites. These individuals may not have safety as a primary duty, but their knowledge of safety standards and practices ensure safer worksites.

Workshops include a professionally published workbook, pencil, notepad, highlighter, and the SPAN™ exclusive CertBoK® online learning management system. SPAN™ CertBoK® includes 250 targeted questions with multiple enhanced learning, exam simulation, and performance tracking capabilities.

The STSC workbook covers the exam blueprint material that could possibly be tested. The workbook contains a series of self-evaluation sessions using the same question, answer and explanation format as in the workshop and the Online Learning Management System membership. The material included in the self-evaluation sessions is designed to supplement study initiatives and reinforce those areas where emphasis is needed for the examination. The program will provide you with 250 researched questions, answers and, more importantly, explanations based on the contents of the exam blueprint.

The STSC certification program is intended for individuals who:
  • Are managers at any level.
  • Are first-line supervisors of work groups or organization units.
  • Have a safety responsibility for a work group that is part of other work duties.
  • Have safety responsibilities that are adjunct, collateral or ancillary to their job duties. Their main job duties are in a craft or trade, in leadership, supervision or management, or in a technical specialty.
  • Help employers implement safety programs at the worker level through supervisory, safety committee or similar safety and health leadership roles. Safety tasks often include monitoring for job hazards, helping ensure regulatory compliance, training employees in safety practices, performing safety documentation tasks, coordinating corrections for identified safety hazards within or among work groups, and communicating with safety specialists or management.

Eligibility:  Education and Work Experience

The STSC requires applicants to meet minimum education and experience requirements. The applicant must have 30 hours of safety, health and environmental training along with two (2) years of supervisory experience or four (4) years of work experience in construction.
