An Engineering Education Australia training course:

The use of temporary works on a construction project greatly increases the WHS risks involved, where failures are often significant events.

Most of these risks can be managed by the adoption of good procedural control. Procedural controls for temporary works in the construction industry were first established in the UK in 1982 through the British Standards Institution’s BS5975, which is still considered to be international best practice in this field.

This one-day course aims to raise the awareness of the risks that temporary works pose when they have not been adequately controlled, common causes of failure, and where good practice can be found. The course will also focus on international best practice in the safe design, construction, use, maintenance and removal of temporary works.

Upon completion, you will be able to identify temporary works across a project, understand the common risks involved, and significantly reduce the level of risk through implementing good procedural control.

Who should attend?

This course is relevant for Civil, Geotechnical and Structural Engineers working in the construction sector. It is also ideal for WHS Advisors, Bid/Commerical Managers, Clients and Client Representatives. Participants require some degree of site-based or oversight experience, no engineering design experience is necessary.
