Details of the course are as follows:


Temporary Works are an important and integral part of most construction projects. The management of Temporary Works in accordance with the good practice set out in BS 5975 is therefore an important part of any successful project.

Competence of individuals in delivering outstanding and safe projects is fundamental and training a key element.


Temporary Works Supervisor Course

Temporary Works Supervisors (TWSs) can be appointed by subcontractors to manage their temporary works or by main contractors to support the TWC on a large project. The purpose of this course is to outline the role of the Temporary Works Supervisor (TWS) as described by BS5975. It is aimed at those who have site experience of temporary works.

The course covers relevant legislation and best practice as outlined by BS5975, analyses the causes of failures and explores the way in which the role of the TWS supports that of the TWC.

The TWS course is of one day duration.

Temporary Works Coordinator Course

This course is aimed at those who have been nominated by their company to act as TWC. These individuals will often have engineering qualifications or site experience of temporary works, or both. The course is also relevant to those who have been nominated to act as Temporary Works Supervisors and who may, in due course, act as Temporary Works Coordinators.

The contents of the course are based on the recommendations of the Temporary Works forum, and include an exploration of relevant legislation and best practice as outlined by BS5975; consideration of the nature of temporary works and associated risks; analysis of failures; the use of a case study to illustrate aspects of the role. The TWC course is of two day duration.

Joint Temporary Works Coordinator and Supervisor Course

We have developed a joint Temporary Works Coordinator and Supervisor course. This allows a client group of Temporary Works staff to attend a joint course. Temporary Works Supervisors and Coordinators attend the first day. Temporary Works Coordinators continue onto the second day.
