This 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 the Temporary Works forum, CECA, Build UK, HSE and FMB. This enables transferability of the training within the industry. 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 5975:2019, which introduces the temporary works coordinator (TWC) as a key figure. This course explains the role and its overall management context. Temporary works on both smaller and larger sites can be high risk. Therefore, understanding the essentials of good risk and safety management, as outlined in BS 5975:2019, is relevant for projects of all sizes. This course will give the delegate a thorough knowledge of the temporary works coordinator (TWC) role. However, this does not make a delegate competent by itself. Competence requires other attributes, such as experience.
There are no formal entry requirements. However, delegates should hold, or be about to hold, the role of a TWC.
Assessment will be by a multiple-choice examination at the end of the course. Delegates will also be expected to interact and participate during the course.
Delegates should be able to achieve all the learning outcomes listed below by the end of the course.

Module 2 – The history of temporary works
