The Temporary Works Coordinator Course is not a Temporary Works Awareness Course. Therefore, it is only concerned with the process of coordination of temporary works, commonly expressed through the role of the Temporary Works Coordinator. Attendance on this course does not infer competency as a Temporary Works Coordinator, as this requires other attributes, such as experience.
Instead this course ensures that all those given temporary works coordinator responsibilities understand the following:
- The need for and duties of a Temporary Works Coordinator;
- The role of others;
- The BS 5975 in respect of the role;
- The importance of the ‘4Cs’: Communication, Coordination, Co-operation and Competency
- The need for risk management.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
- Understand the duties of a TWC and the roles of others;
- Have detailed knowledge and understanding of BS 5975;
- Understand how to manage risk, and;
- Implement the 4C’s effectively in the workplace.
Temporary works are safety and business critical and require careful coordination, An accepted way of achieving this is through the adoption of the management process outlined in BS 5975, which introduces the Temporary Works Coordinator as a key figure.
High risk can occur on small as well as larger sites; hence, understanding the essentials of good safety risk management, as outlined in BS 5975, is relevant for projects of all sizes.
