Reference Material - Temporary Works


The aim of this document is to provide a simple summary of temporary works items that are commonly associated with the various forms of ground engineering that FPS members may undertake.  This is designed as an aide memoir for FPS members, main contractors, engineers and their clients and does not constitute a definitive list of temporary works that could be encountered on site.  In particular this does not remove the need for individual organisations to undertake site specific assessments of temporary works requirements. Statutory legislation and the Contract will define the respective responsibilities of the parties involved to manage the design and checking of temporary works.
