Temporary Works: Risk and Awareness

Engineering context

Temporary works failures are often significant and almost always potentially fatal events.

Most of these failures could have been avoided 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 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.
