Formwork structures have always been a highly hazardous item inthe construction industry. Continuing failures of formworks inSingapore have raised considerable alarm in the industry, thegovernment and the public.To address these concerns, and to update an outdated Code ofPractice for formwork, a Workgroup was formed in 2012 to developa new Code of Practice, SS580.This one-day course on formwork design and safety to revisedstandards and EuroCode aims to accomplish the following: Provide background material to and useful information onimproved standards in this area for this critical topic inworkplace safety; Present the basics of safe design of formwork structures andessential design requirements of SS580; Describe significant parts of the new Code of Practice forFormwork SS580:2012 to facilitate its use by designers andconstructors; Review a number of failure of formworks in Singapore andabroad to convey an understanding of causes; Discuss techniques to identify and evaluate the hazards, andmanage the risks; and, Offer practical guidelines for good practice in formworkdesign, erection, use, dismantling, inspection, andsupervision.The focus will be on basic concepts and procedures currently in usefor formwork in the construction industry.Objectives will include identification of principal contributory factors to formwork failures and their underlying rootcauses, and discussing how the new Code can eliminate or alleviate the problems.
