New CITB Temporary Work General Awareness Course to be delivered

Temporary works (TW) are the parts of a construction project that are needed to enable the permanent works to be built. Occasionally the TW can be incorporated into the permanent works. For further FAQs on temporary please visit the HSE website.

The HSE have also published a news article ‘Worker injured falling down a service riser shaft’ where a company was fined £120k due to the failure of planning and managing temporary works. A worker broke both ankles after stepping onto a temporary works structure which subsequently collapsed.

Following the success of the Temporary Works Coordinator and Temporary Works Supervisor courses Sanctus Training Ltd are introducing the Temporary Works General Awareness Course to the CITB Site Safety Plus course suite.

The Temporary Works Coordinator (TWC) course is ideal for senior managers who control the planning, procurement and management of temporary works. Delegates will gain knowledge and understanding of the temporary works coordinator role and the management of the temporary works process covering; communication, co-ordination, co-operation and competency, along with risk management issues.

The Temporary Works Supervisor (TWS) course is suitable for anyone on site who have a responsibility for supervising temporary works. The course will provide the delegate with thorough knowledge of the role, including a sound understanding of temporary works covering; safety and business relations, risk management and the importance of communication, co-ordination, co-operation and competency.

The Temporary Works General Awareness (TWGA) course is aimed at those who may be involved, but not responsible for the temporary works process including new entrants to the construction industry and anyone overseeing contractors managing temporary works. The course covers the importance of risk management and the need to plan for temporary works. Delegates will also gain knowledge of what may be considered as temporary works, the issues that may arise and the processes that should be in place to manage temporary works.

All three courses are supported by the Temporary Work Forum, CECA, UK Build, HSE and FMB.
