Understand current design requirements of Temporary Works by Australian Standards and how to apply these guidelines effectively when designing structures

The use of temporary works on a construction project greatly increases the WHS risks involved, where failures are often significant events. This webinar will equip participants with an understanding of current design requirements of temporary works by Australian Standards, and what other local guidelines exist for various forms of temporary works.

This course will familiarise participants with some of the lesser-known international guidelines for various forms of temporary works, and will provide a list of resources that can be found online and via multiple platforms.

We'll cover certain types and forms of temporary works in detail, such as hoardings, formwork, tower cranes, precast panel installation and many others. Design considerations and common pitfalls will be covered to ensure designers are equipped with the necessary knowledge to design simple forms of these structures.

This course will provide attendees with an understanding of the design principles for certain forms of temporary works, how to consider them when designing permanent works and where common pitfalls are.
