Code of practice for temporary works procedures and the permissible stress design of falsework

Status : Current, Project Underway   Published : December 2008



What is BS 5975: 2008+A1:2011?

BS 5975 gives you the code of best practice for temporary structures on building sites. It gives practical guidelines on design, specification, construction and the use and dismantling of falsework. Explained over clear and easy-to-read sections, this standard looks at all the elements that should be taken into consideration when erecting structural systems and building structural designs. By implementing these principles, you’ll be better prepared for site investigations and it will be significantly easier to comply with current legislation.

How does it work?

BS 5975 takes an in-depth look at all the terms, definitions, abbreviations and symbols, as well as the latest legislation, concerning temporary structures and falsework. This standard also gives clear guidelines on the procedural control of temporary works, including the design, the site supervision and loading. BS 5975 defines falsework in detail and looks at all the materials involved, such as steels, structural timber, softwoods, hardwoods, concretes and other scaffolding components. Other topics include foundations, soil testing and ground-water drainage.
