Engineering New Zealand is running a series of webinars on "LESSONS TO BE LEARNT" This is the fourth webinar of the series, and it is hosted in collaboration with the NZSSE.
Brendan Attewell explores lessons learnt from a recent temporary works failure in New Zealand and how the review of internal procedures against international best practice has resulted in better controls on these high risk activities. The webinar will cover the root cause of common temporary works failures, how the NZ construction and engineering community has come together to try to address these failures (establishment of the Temporary Works forum) with the development of NZ Good Practice, as well as how further initiatives that are led by the TWf and NZSSE are helping to drive safer workplaces.
Brendan Attewell is a Chartered Civil Engineer (CPEng CMEngNZ CEng MICE). He serves as committee member of the NZSSE. Brendan works predominantly in the design and management of temporary works required to enable the construction of medium to large scale building projects. He facilitates Temporary Works Training Courses across New Zealand and Australia to help raise awareness of the serious risks our workplaces face when procedural control of temporary works have not been implemented according to good practice.
