Do I Need the Temporary Works Supervisor or Co-ordinator Course?

It’s not easy to know which temporary works course to attend based on your role – are you acting as a supervisor or a coordinator or both?

This is where a formal training course and we at CHSG can help you decide – things to think about are: 

  • Am I working for a Principal Contractor?
  • Am I working for a Sub-Contractor?
  • Is there more than one project to manage?
  • Is the project too big to manage alone?
  • How do we ensure a safe system is used?

The management of temporary works requires that individuals understand:

  • Their own company policies and procedures
  • The procedure as per BS 5975:2019

What is BS 5975:2019?

This details best industry practice and guidance whether you are a contractor or designer in understanding:

  • Individual roles and responsibilities
  • The management of risks to ensure safety

The Temporary Works Coordinator is responsible in ensuring that all the temporary works is being controlled and managed.

They are normally assisted by a Temporary Works Supervisor to ensure that temporary works equipment has been correctly assembled, dismantled and maintained.

There are several possible scenarios that may be applied to a project, dependent on the client, contractor, or application requirements.

CITB Temporary Works Co-ordinator Training Course (TWCTC)

 

Course Dates:
11 and 12 March
24 and 25 April
18 and 19 June

 

Course Aims:

  • To focus on the process of co-ordination of temporary works, commonly expressed through the role of the TWC.
  • These courses are not temporary works technical awareness courses, although there are elements of technical awareness that are signposted throughout and that must be included in the course exercises.
  • Attendance does not confer competency as a TWC; this comes from a mixture of education, training and experience and should be judged by an appropriate senior individual, usually referred to as the designated individual (DI).
