The Workplace Safety and Health (Design for Safety) Regulations 2015 came into operation on 1st August 2016. Besides the employment of a Design for Safety Professional, other personnel such as architects, engineers, designers involve in various engineering professions in the project are also required to eliminate or mitigate all foreseeable design risks to as low as reasonably practicable to any person affected by the project under the Regulations.

The objectives of the technical talk is to provide the knowledge and awareness on the fundamentals and first principles associated with functional safety and hazardous area classification.Two distinguished industry experts will deliver the talk through the interactive sessions. Process engineers, process designers, process safety engineers, electrical engineers and instrumentation engineers would benefit by attending this talk.

This course aims to highlight the key environmental concerns relating to air and water pollution from construction sites. The scope of the course will cover sources and activities on worksites that generate pollution, as well as the impact of this pollution on our environment. Regulations, management and control measures to address these pollution concerns will also be discussed.

Computational BIM or rule-based approach refers to innovative problem-solving processes in which users define algorithms and workflows to automate tasks, optimise outputs and manage changes across different project phases. It allows users to explore more options leading to desired solution for productivity gain. Computational BIM also forms an important part of Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD). Increasingly, local and international project teams are adopting it to optimise their project delivery.

Up-to-date knowledge of local regulations and construction practices are key to the site supervisors especially the Resident Engineers (RE) and Resident Technical Officers (RTO) to deliver their duties diligently and effectively.This course will provide site supervisors essential knowledge in the areas of regulatory requirements, safety regulations, environmental management at construction sites, code requirements on construction practices and site supervision. This course is also useful to engineers with foreign qualifications, and others who wish to be updated on local construction practices.

Precast concrete technology had been identified as one of the key areas of focus to improve productivity in the construction industry. It has been observed that there is more room for a greater adoption of this technology in Singapore. Good site management practices and planning of precast concrete construction activities such as on-site/off-site casting of precast members, transportation of the members to site, erection and construction considerations would contribute to more efficient, less labour intensive and faster construction. This would eventually lead to better construction productivity. This workshop provides construction managers with practical knowledge in the planning, execution and control of precast concrete construction. At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to plan and manage precast concrete construction site activities effectively.

Construction sites are often exposed to risks. Collapse, flooding, fire, falling debris, accidents involving workers or even damage to third party properties are among the common concerns at on-going project site. This course comprising of lectures and case studies, will enable participants to appreciate basic concepts in risk management and acquire better knowledge of the Contractors All Risks (CAR) insurance policy. Besides policy coverage, issues of dealing with CAR claims will also be addressed during the session.

The Security of Payment Act facilitates payments for construction work done or for related goods/services supplied in the building and construction industry. It aims to improve cash flow in the construction industry by giving parties the right to seek progress payments for work done, and to provide quick and low-cost resolution of payment disputes through adjudication. The course provides an overview of the key essentials in the Security of Payment legislation. It aims to enhance participants understanding on the mechanism, requirements and considerations of the Security of Payment Act and discusses payment issues typically encountered in building and construction projects.
