CITB - Temporary Works Supervisor Training Course (TWSTC)
This one day course is designed to assist those on site who have responsibility for supervising temporary works.
The course gives emphasis throughout to the importance of communication, co-ordination, co-operation and competency (the '4Cs'), risk management, safety and business relations.
This course allows the Temporary Works Supervisor (TWS) to:
Temporary works are usually safety and business-critical and require careful supervision. An accepted way of achieving this is through the adoption of the management process outlined in BS5975 which introduces the Temporary Works Supervisor.
This course explains the role and the overall management context within which it sits. High risk can occur on small as well as larger sites hence understanding the essentials of good safety risk management, as outlined in BS5975, is relevant for projects of all sizes.
This course is not a temporary works awareness course. It is only concerned with the process of the supervision of temporary works, commonly expressed through the role of the Temporary Works Supervisor. Attendance does not confer competency as a Temporary Works Supervisor; this comes from a mixture of education, training and experience and should be judged by an appropriate senior individual, usually referred to as the Designated Individual (DI). Training is considered an essential element of Temporary Works Supervisor competence.
Certification for this course is valid for 5 years. To remain certified in this area, you will need to take a refresher course before the expiry date on your certificate, otherwise the full course will need to be retaken.
