Industry experts discuss expectations on the procedural control of Temporary Works.

The webinar outlines the necessity of Temporary Works control in the construction sector. The origins of this, from the predecessors of BS5975:1982 to the current 2019 edition, are also explored. Our expert speakers emphasise the need to appoint competent people in positions of responsibility, discussing each role.

Key learning objectives include:

  • Origin and background to BS5975
  • Prime roles relating to the control of temporary works
  • What is considered as industry best practice
  • What can happen when control is lost
