This course will give the delegate thorough knowledge of the Temporary Works Co-ordinator role and assist those on site who have responsibility for managing all forms of temporary works.

It is also designed to give confidence to senior management and those who engage contractors. Participating delegates will reach an assessed standard of knowledge and be awarded a CSkills Site Safety Plus Certificate on successful completion.


The safety and business aspects of temporary works require careful co-ordination. An accepted way of achieving this is through the adoption of the management process outlined in BS5975 which introduces the Temporary Works Co-ordinator (TWC) as a key figure. This two day training course explains the role and the overall management context within which it sits.

High risk can occur on small as well as larger sites hence understanding the essentials of good safety risk management, as outlined in BS5975, is relevant for projects of all sizes.

The training course was launched by the CITB in response to recent efforts to tighten procedural control on Temporary Works projects, whereby the construction industry issued a mandate that all Temporary Works Co-ordinators are to hold CSkills certification, which has to be renewed every five years.

It has the support of a number of organisations: CITB, Temporary Works Forum CECA, UKCG, HSE and FMB, making it transferable across industry.


Sessions begin at 9:00 and finish at 17:00.

Morning and afternoon coffee breaks and lunch are included in the programme.
