The two-day Temporary Works Coordinators Training Course (TWCTC) course is designed to assist those on site who have responsibility for managing all forms of temporary works.  The course has been designed to give confidence to senior management, and to ensure that those who engage contractors have an assessed standard of knowledge.

The course is supported by a number of organisations including Temporary Works Forum CECA, Build UK, HSE and FMB, which enables transferability of the training within industry.

Temporary works are 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 BS 5975, 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.

High risk can occur on small as well as larger site; hence, understanding the essentials of good safety risk management, as outlined in BS 5975, is relevant for projects of all sizes.

This course will give the delegate thorough knowledge of the Temporary Works Co-ordinator role.  However, this does not alone make a delegate competent, as this requires other attributes e.g. experience.

Aims and objectives

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

To ensure that all those given temporary works co-ordinating responsibilities understand:

  • the need for and duties of a TWC
  • the role of others
  • the BS 5975 in respect of the role
  • the importance of the ‘4Cs’: communication, co-ordination, co-operation and competency
  • the need for risk management

At the end of the course delegates will be able to:

  • understand the duties of a TWC and roles of others
  • have detailed knowledge and understanding of BS 5975
  • understand how to manage risk
  • implement the ‘4C’s’ effectively in the workplace

Course content:

  • Why temporary works is important
  • Roles
  • Statutory aspects to temporary works
  • Avoiding failure, People, Process & Product
  • Role of the TWC
  • Management
  • Key aspects of different temporary works


  • All delegates are required to bring some form of photographic identification along on the day of the course.  Where identification evidence is not provided by a delegate, they will be refused attendance on the course.
  • All delegates attending the course are to have a good understanding of spoken and written English.
