In the construction industry, temporary works play an integral role in bridging gaps, supporting structures, and facilitating the seamless transition from one phase of building to another. These pivotal constructions, whether they be scaffolds, props, or shoring provide essential support and safety during projects.
At the heart of managing these structures, ensuring they are safely erected, maintained, and dismantled, is the Temporary Works Coordinator (TWC).
A Temporary Works Coordinator is a trained professional dedicated to ensuring the proper planning, supervision, and execution of temporary works within a construction site. They are the sentinels of safety and the stewards of safety and efficiency.
The construction industry comes with its fair share of risks. One of the primary areas of vulnerability is temporary works. Without proper training, the following implications arise:

Through proactive management and an understanding of best practices, TWCs trained by CITB play a vital role in reducing accidents on site, creating a safer environment for all workers.
Efficiency is the backbone of a successful project. With trained TWCs at the helm of temporary works, projects witness a marked improvement in their timelines and execution.
A trained TWC knows how to optimise workflows, ensuring that temporary works are executed seamlessly without disrupting the broader construction process.
Mistakes in temporary works can lead to significant project hold-ups. With the knowledge imparted by the CITB course, TWCs can pre-empt and address issues, minimising the risk of delays.
