What is a Temporary Works Supervisor?

Temporary Works SupervisorThe Temporary Works Coordinator generally selects the Temporary Works Supervisor on site. A Temporary Works Supervisor is usually appointed when the site is larger than a conventional site or if the Coordinator is managing several sites at once.

Take a look at the responsibilities a Temporary Works Supervisor has in their day to day work.

Temporary Works Supervisors don’t just work for the Principal Contractor on-site; well-organised sub-contractors may also provide a supervisor to make work easier on-site for the Principal Contractor. When it comes to selecting subcontractors for the temporary works process; those who have their Supervisor are much more appealing to a Principal Contractor.

What The Job Entails

A Temporary Works Supervisor must have the relevant training, experience and qualifications for the role. You will work closely with the Temporary Works Coordinator in the checking and supervision of temporary works. Therefore, if you accept this role without the relevant experience you may miss important safety issues on site.

Temporary Works Supervisor Responsibilities

The supervisor must regularly check the site and supervise the workers from day-to-day. They will also supervise the likes of material deliveries, erecting the works according to design, inspection and maintenance and the dismantling of the works.

The supervisor must have the approved information and that the work is done according to the design. The coordinator takes on any reported concerns throughout the work. The Temporary Designer will then instruct any changes between the Temporary Works Coordinator through to the Supervisor so communication is key.
