Temporary Works

For July, we have partnered with EnergyWorks to look at elements around the concept of “temporary works”. These are works that are there for a temporary duration (e.g. scaffolding, rigging, piping, hoses,  buildings) that often are in place to enable permanent works to be done.

Temporary Works often don’t need to meet industry standard and code, but regrettably still follow the basic laws of physics, and as such often require their own specific risk assessment and dedicated controls. Often, temporary can become permanent.

This presentation shows examples of temporary works. Use it to challenge what works you have in your own business that are considered temporary, what standards and codes they are managed under, and whether or not they have snuck across to being permanent.

Many thanks to Geoff Bourke and his team for this contribution

Health & Safety at Work Reform


The Government has announced changes to a range of outdated,
complex and incomplete health and safety requirements. New health
and safety regulations will provide more clarity and certainty for
businesses and better safety and health for workers.

During the public consultation, many stakeholders supported changing the regulations that
apply to plant and structures and wanted greater clarity and certainty. The changes have been
designed to ensure the rules are clear, effective, flexible, durable and proportionate, making it
easier for businesses to manage risks, and better ensure people come home from work safe
and healthy.
