We are always looking to expand the range of health and safety training that we offer, and our latest addition is a 2 day Temporary Works Co-ordinator course, which joins our existing CITB courses.
What are temporary works?
Temporary works are built as part of the construction process to enable permanent works to be completed. Once they have served their purpose, the temporary works are normally removed.
Examples of temporary works are: access scaffolds, props, shoring, excavation support, falsework and formwork. As well as removing them, you can also incorporate temporary works into the permanent works. Examples of this include: haul road foundations and crane or piling platforms that may be used for hardstanding or road foundations.
