Revised guidance on hoardings is now available via The Temporary Works Forum (TWf).
As a result of this, the guidance note from the Temporary Works Forum (TWf) aims to assist all parties working in construction to understand the key issues.
Furthermore, it will also help those specifying, managing, designing and installing hoarding structures.
Hoarding design can be complex. In fact, it requires engineering judgement to facilitate safe and effective hoarding structures.
Consequently, the revised guidance on hoardings states that hoarding designers should be highly competent and have previous experience in the field.
What’s more, the Temporary Works Forum advises that all hoarding designs should undergo independent checks following installation.
