CITB Site Safety Plus Temporary Works Co-ordinator (TWCTC)


The two-day Temporary Works Co-ordinator Training Course (TWCTC) course is designed to assist those on site who have responsibility for managing all forms of temporary works. The 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 Temporary Works Forum CECA, Build UK, HSE and FMB, which enables transferability of the training within industry.

Temporary works are safety and business-critical and require careful co-ordination. An accepted way of achieving this is through the adoption of the management process outlined in BS 5975, which introduces the Temporary Works Co-ordinator (TWC) as a key figure. This 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 BS 5975, is relevant for projects of all sizes.

This course will give the delegate thorough knowledge of the Temporary Works Co-ordinator role. However, this does not alone make a delegate competent, as this requires other attributes e.g. experience.
