  • What is better SMSTS or SSSTS?
    • The SMSTS and SSSTS are comparable courses, but the SMSTS goes into more depth since it is designed for managers to be able to develop safety systems in the workplace, whereas the SSSTS is designed to offer supervisors the skills they need to ensure that these systems are followed.
