The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) states:
'Temporary works are usually safety and business-critical and require careful co-ordination. An accepted way of achieving this is through the adoption of the management process outlined in BS5975 which introduces the Temporary Works Co-ordinator as a key figure.'
The Temporary Works Co-ordinator (TWC) is responsible for communicating, monitoring and controlling the allocation and safe execution of temporary works across a project.
Industry consensus has stipulated that knowledge of temporary works policy, detail of the BS5975 and the procedural controls described in the code are essential aspects of the role. To fulfil this requirement, the CITB specifies that all practicing TWCs hold CSkills Site Safety Plus Certification.
