This course is designed to provide training for those in temporary works but who are not undertaking the
Roles of either Temporary Works Co-ordinator (TWC) or Temporary Works Supervisor (TWS) as defined in BS 5975:2008 + A1:2011 (referred to hereafter as ‘BS5975’).
The rationale for the Temporary Works General Awareness Training Course is to:
- raise awareness and impart knowledge of what constitutes temporary works, how they are used, their safety critical importance, common temporary works issues, and the temporary works management process
- raise awareness of the roles and responsibilities involved in the temporary works process
- set a common standard across the industry that can be accepted with confidence
- allow a transferable knowledge base between employers, thus avoiding unnecessary supplementary training.
Aims and Objectives
To give delegates a general awareness and appreciation of temporary works, to understand:
- what is deemed temporary works
- how temporary works are used
- the role of safety in temporary works
- common issues associated with temporary works
- the management processes
At the end of the course delegates will be able to:
- understand what constitutes temporary works
- know how temporary works are used
- understand the importance of safety, and how to overcome common issues
- understand the need for management processes
There are no formal entry requirements; however, the course assumes limited or no detailed previous knowledge of temporary works.
- Delegates who are not likely to be TWCs or TWSs in the near future (or at all) but may be involved in the temporary works process.
- Directors, contract managers, site foremen, estimators, planners, procurement, commercial managers, project leads.
- Health and safety professionals wishing to gain a better understanding of temporary works.
- Delegates undertaking a graduate development programme.
- Delegates not directly from civil engineering or building sectors who may use temporary works, e.g. mechanical and electrical contractors, local authority building maintenance, nuclear decommissioning, utility companies.
- Delegates who have come into the construction industry from other industries.
- Foreign contractors who may wish to learn from UK best practice.
- Permanent works designers involved in temporary works, other consulting or structural engineers.
- Principal designers and clients representatives.
- People from the training industry – University and College lecturers.
- Salespersons from equipment or plant suppliers.
Assessment will be by multiple choice questions at the end of the course as well as being expected to be interactive during the course.
Attendance does not confer competency as a Temporary Works Co-ordinator or Supervisor but is for the purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
If delegates are to perform the functions of Temporary Works Co-ordinator or Temporary Works Supervisor in the future, then they should attend the Temporary Works Co-ordinator or Temporary Works Supervisor training courses.
