TEMPORARY WORKS CO‑ORDINATOR COURSE DETAILS
Temporary works are usually safety and business-critical and require careful coordination. An accepted way of achieving this is through the adoption of the management process outlined in BS5975, which introduces the temporary works co-ordinator (TWC) as a key figure. This course explains the role and the overall management context within which it sits (CITB Scheme Rules).
The contents of the course 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
Swanton Consulting Ltd is an approved Training Provider on behalf of CITB-Construction Skills for this course.
