THE BENEFITS OF U.K. GUIDANCE FOR TEMPORARY WORKS. IN: PREPARING FOR CONSTRUCTION IN THE 21ST CENTURY, PROCEEDINGS OF CONSTRUCTION CONGRESS '91, SPONSORED BY THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS IN COOPERATION WITH THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF MINING ENGINEERS AND THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION, CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, APRIL 13-16, 1991

The author describes his work involving the identification and investigation of the practice of falsework on construction sites. His task was to identify what were the good practices in use and why they were successful. In the UK an experienced person, according to the author, ignores a defective construction job at his peril since he may be sued by an injured party under common law. The research project provided a picture of current practices on a range of large and small projects. It showed the influence of drawings and instructions upon the quality of work, a measure of the tolerances being achieved and the incidences of good and bad practices.
