This course complements the Temporary Works Co-ordinator Training Course (TWCTC) and is designed to provide training for those undertaking the role of Temporary Works Supervisor as defined in BS 5975:2008 + A1:2011 (referred to hereafter as ‘BS 5975’).
The role can be defined, relating to three clauses within the BS:
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.
1. Supervision and checking (Clause 7.4). The core role, applicable to all TWSs and if requested by the TWC (if competent to do so, and it satisfies the TWS’s own company procedures).
2. Issuing load/unload permits (Clause 7.3.4). (In addition, although not formally part of the TWS role, if requested by the TWC, if competent to do so in respect of each individual action, and it satisfies the TWS’s own company procedures.)
3. Assist the TWC discharge some of his/her responsibilities (specifically those which the TWC is permitted to delegate) (Clause 7.2.5).
The rationale for the Temporary Works Supervisor’s Training Course is to raise and set standards across the industry and allow a transferable knowledge base between employers, avoiding unnecessary supplementary training.Enquire Online
