The Safety Trained Supervisor (STS) certification provides a means for employers to verify safety and health knowledge of first-line supervisors and managers. The program requires applicants to meet minimum education and experience requirements and demonstrate knowledge of basic safety and health standards and practices.
The STS workbooks cover the exam blueprint material that could possibly be tested. Each 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.
