Temporary Works Guidance 


Learners are expected to have a working knowledge of the following legislation:

• Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974

• Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999

• Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 • Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) 2015

• Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998

• Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998

• The Personal Protective Equipment Regulations 1992

• The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992

• The Work at Height Regulations 2005.

A key issue for temporary works is health and safety, so learners need to be prepared to discuss how health and safety legislation is relevant to temporary works, as well as which Approved Codes of Practice (ACOPs) and guidance notes may assist or contribute to safe practices in temporary works. Learners need to be prepared to discuss and explore all the core health and safety factors that are integrated into temporary works processes at all stages of a project, from initiation to closure.

They will need to have working knowledge of all associated legislation, specifically the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 in terms of its intention and compliance. Learners must also have a thorough understanding of health and safety principles and understand the importance of risk management, design considerations, inspection and testing and recording and monitoring requirements.

Learners who have achieved a certificate approved against the Health and Safety in Construction Site Supervision standard (such as SSSTS or SSSTS-R) or the Health and Safety in Construction Site Management standard (such as SMSTS or SMSTS-R), will have gained the knowledge to meet these expectations. This is not a mandatory pre-requisite, but learners with these achievements will benefit from having this knowledge before attending the course.

To further support learners, CITB has created a Temporary works awareness eLearning which provides a foundation of the points that will be expanded on in this course. It explores how health and safety legislation plays a pivotal role in temporary works, and how documents which are common to more generic construction activities are a useful aid for planning and the ongoing management and monitoring of temporary works. Learners may also find it helpful to complete the Temporary works awareness eLearning provided by CITB, which is free to access here.
