Aims & Objectives

This course is not a temporary works awareness course. It is only concerned with the process of co-ordination of temporary works, commonly expressed through the role of the Temporary Works Co-ordinator. Attendance does not confer competency as a Temporary Works Co-ordinator.

The course gives emphasis, throughout, to:

  • The importance of communication, co-ordination, co-operation and competency. The ‘4C’s
  • Risk management: safety and also business related

Allowing the Temporary Works Co-ordinator (TWC) to:

  • Understand the need for and duties of a TWC
  • Understand the role of others
  • Have a detailed knowledge and understanding of BS5975 in respect of this role.

Course Attendance:

<p

Delegates must attend the days in order and, where not on consecutive days, must complete the course within two weeks. Delegates unable to attend both days due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. certificated sickness) will need to enrol onto a new course in order to maintain continuity of learning outcomes and attend both days again.

Intended For:

It is expected that experienced and competent Temporary Works Co-ordinators will attend this course. Competence comes from a mixture of education, training and experience and should be judged by an appropriate senior individual, usually referred to as the Designated Individual (DI). Training is considered an essential element of Temporary Works Co-ordinator competence

Pre-course Requirements:

This course, including its group work and exercises, is constructed around BS5975:2008 +A1:2011. For Open Courses Delegates should, ideally, bring a copy with them in order not to be significantly disadvantaged. For in-house courses it is expected that the Tutor will tailor the course around the organisation procedures, providing they are comprehensive and follow the philosophy of BS5975. In these cases delegates will need a copy of their own procedures. In the absence of adequate procedures delegates will need a copy of the BS itself.

Course Duration:

2 day (14 hours)
