The construction industry is important to Singapores economic growth, contributing nearly 5% of GDP in 2015. During construction, however, projects could pose a significant risk to environmental health, potentially causing noise pollution or the spread of infectious vector-borne diseases such as dengue and malaria. Construction practices that inadequately address these issues can have damaging implications, such as adversely affecting the health and well-being of workers on-site and neighbouring communities. A balance between operational and environmental concerns is therefore crucial to ensure that timely completion of projects does not come at the cost of endangering our health and environment. The scope of this course will cover foundational concepts relating to noise and vector-borne diseases, as well as key sources and health impacts relating to noise pollution and vector-borne diseases from construction sites. Management and control measures to address these concerns will also be discussed.

This particular module will discuss the background of this Court of Appeal case and its direct impact on site supervisors as well as their employers. The course will also provide participants with an up-to-date essential knowledge of Singapores laws on negligence and the common law duty of RTO & RE (as well as engineers and other technical professional s) which are relevant to the engineering building construction (ECB) industries and are faced by or connected with ECB projects.

Whilst the ideal of adopting a zero-waste approach, on grounds of sustainable construction, is well understood, to achieve it in practice can be challenging. A great deal of research has been undertaken worldwide on recycled aggregates and their use in construction and the standards/codes are slowly becoming more receptive.However, just as in the case of natural aggregates, it is important to understand how best to develop the use of recycled aggregates. Based on the vast amount of information, collated from over 1400 publications originating globally from over 65 countries, analysed and evaluated, and presented in over 600 print pages in a book form, this workshop aims to discuss the production, characteristics and use of recycled aggregates in mortar, concrete, geotechnics and road pavements. In addition, environmental impact arising from the use of the materials will be addressed.References will be made to the related standards and codes, as well as case studies undertaken using recycled aggregates. The book, used as course notes, is structured in an incisive and easy to digest manner and is particularly suited for aggregate suppliers, ready-mixed concrete producers, design engineers, specifiers, contractors, as well as academics and researchers.
