Start time: 9.00am AEST. Learn how to identify, manage and administer temporary works as this Virtual Workshop enables you to understand their risks and how to proceed.
Temporary Works

An Engineering Education Australia Virtual Workshop:

Temporary works failures are often significant and can cause death. You can avoid most of these failures with robust procedural control.

In this course, you'll learn about:

  • the risks of poorly controlled temporary works
  • common causes of failures
  • where to find good guidelines - including British Standard BS5975.

You'll cover local and international best practice in safety in design, as well as in the construction, use, maintenance and removal of temporary works. You'll also learn about common failures.

After completing this course, you'll be able to:

  • identify temporary works across a project
  • understand the common risks involved
  • implement good procedural control to reduce risk.

You'll also receive a workbook that includes references to online tools, books, guidelines and practice notes for further reference.

Learning outcomes

  • Identifying all temporary works across a project
  • A good understanding of common risks posed by temporary works
  • The causes of recent temporary works failures
  • Your obligations to control temporary works risks under WHS legislation
  • Defining what good procedural control means and where to find good practice
  • Defining common temporary works terminology, including working load limits, factors of safety and permissible stress design
  • Developing a strategy to ensure poor practice doesn't lead to harm
  • How to conduct temporary works checks, including sliding, overturning and stability
