Who is the course designed for?

This HCS Safety half day course is designed to assist those who have responsibility or require an understanding of temporary works. It is designed to a level of awareness and to build confidence for those who engage with contractors.

The course provides essential knowledge for those planning, managing or monitoring a project including Principal Designers and Principal Contractors.

Temporary works are present on almost all sites and the HSE expects this potentially high risk area to be well managed. Enforcement of Temporary Works is high on the target list for the regulator in the light of a number of recent incidents.

The course looks at the importance of communication, co-ordination, co-operation and competency, along with risk management and safety.
