Briefing: Temporary Works Forum: how history and narrative shaped a major safety initiative

A briefing by Bill Hewlett, MA, CEng, FICE, FIET - posted with permission - in ‘Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers - Forensic Engineering’ 

“The Temporary Works Forum was founded to give a place for professionals to come together and share their experience and learning about temporary works. 2019 marked its 10th anniversary. In this article, the founding chair reflects on why he, and the founding secretary, launched the Forum, and draws lessons from its success: an understanding of historic context and a respect for narrative are considered to have been vital, building on a sound base drawn from the philosophy of science. As well as giving insight into temporary works as a subject, the article challenges where else initiatives of this kind would add value to the engineering profession.”
