Temporary Works Courses at Sanctus Training Ltd

Temporary works are the parts of a construction project that are needed to enable the permanent works to be built.

Temporary works are usually safety and business-critical and require careful co-ordination. An accepted way of achieving this is through the adoption of the management process outlined in BS5975 which introduces the Temporary Works Co-ordinator as a key figure.

This two day course explains the role and the overall management context within which it sits.

The one day Temporary Works Supervisor course is designed to assist those on site who have responsibility for supervising temporary works and will allow the Supervisor to:


  • Understand the need for and duties of a Temporary Works Supervisor
  • Understand the role of others
  • Have a detailed knowledge and understanding of BS5975 in respect of this role


High risk can occur on small as well as larger sites hence understanding the essentials of good safety risk management, as outlined in BS5975, is relevant for projects of all sizes.

The courses have the support of a number of organisations: Temporary Works Forum, CECA, Build UK, HSE and FMB. The support of these organisations offers transferability of the course within industry.

Sanctus Training Ltd is an accredited CITB Centre offering Temporary Works Coordinator and Supervisor training as part of the suite of Site Safety Plus courses.
