Temporary Works is a particular source of risk on site, both from a safety and commercial point of view. Following a series of collapses in the 1970s, the Bragg report and subsequently BS 5975 were produced, to assist designers and users of temporary works.
The industry still recognises today, along with the HSE, the risks associated with temporary works with the competency of the designer being a key point of concern.
Correct design, co-ordination and execution of temporary works is essential to the overall requirement of any project to be completed in accordance with safety, time and budget, health and environmental constraints.

Temporary Works therefore has a code of practice BS5975 that in addition to technical issues also contains a section on procedural control and co-ordination.
This one-day course is one of two courses on temporary works design, this one focusing on works below ground, and is complemented by a similar course focussing on works above ground.
