This webinar will provide an introduction to new Singapore Standards on Glazing in buildings Safety related to human impact (SS 653: 2020) and Curtain walls (SS 654 : 2020). Glazed elements in and around buildings may be subject to human impact, which could result in injury to the public and/or damage to finishes or other parts of the building. SS 653 provides the requirements to designers and installers of such glazed components on the materials and techniques to adopt in order to minimise the risk of injury to the public. This standard serves as a reference for the specification of glazed elements that may be subject to human impact. SS 654 specifies the materials and performance standards for metal-framed curtain walls and requirements for good practices in the design and installation of a curtain wall system. The performance standard includes tests for air permeability, water-tightness and structural performance. This webinar also highlights the major changes that are incorporated into this new standard compared with the previous SS 381 and CP 96.

The regulatory requirement for Design-for-Safety (DfS) was enforced since August 2016. It requires stakeholders to work together to address foreseeable risks right from the conceptual design to the construction of the project. During the construction stage, the DfS review meetings will involve the design & supervision team from the Consultants and construction team from the Contractor. They will participate in reviewing safety and health risks relating to design and propose mitigation measures for implementation.
