The course was launched by the CITB in response to recent efforts to tighten procedural control on Temporary Works projects, whereby the construction industry issued a mandate that all Temporary Works Co-ordinators are to hold CSkills certification.
Delivered across 2 days, this course is designed to assist those on site who have responsibility for managing all forms of temporary works. It is also designed to give confidence to senior management and those who engage contractors. Participating delegates will reach an assessed standard of knowledge and be awarded a CSkills Site Safety Plus Certificate on successful completion.
The course has the support of a number of organisations: CITB, Temporary Works Forum CECA, UKCG, HSE and FMB, making it transferable across industry.
