Construction industries in Singapore are highly regulated especially in relation to safety health and environment. It is therefore very essential that the key stakeholders including site supervisors (REs & RTOs) in the engineering building construction (ECB) industries are equipped and acquainted with up-to-date knowledge of the legal aspects of Workplace Safety, Health and Environment and are fully aware and conscious of their legal responsibilities and liabilities in order to carry out their work & duties diligently, carefully and effectively.This particular module will provide participants with an up-to-date essential knowledge of Singapore's laws and regulations on site safety, health & environmental requirements relevant to the EBC industries and the legal responsibilities and possible of site supervisors.

The aim of the event is to keep engineers in the process industries (Oil, Petrochemical, Fine Chemicals, Utilities, Pharmaceuticals, Food Processing) informed of the new Skills framework for these industries and how they can get peer recognition through the IES Chartered Engineer scheme.For CAPE/ OPEC Chartered Engineer, disciplines include Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Instrumentation & Control, HSE, EPC and Consultancy.

This seminar is part of a series of seminars by the Building and Construction Standards Committee to keep the local industry informed of changes and new standards. The Eurocodes have been implemented in Singapore since Apr 2015. It has been a learning journey for the local industry. In 2017, BSI has revised the Eurocodes and Singapore has followed up with the revisions. The revisions in Eurocode 7 Geotechnical Design will be shared with the local industry in this seminar. More importantly, some revisions that depart from BSI need to be made based on local experience.

Association of Consulting Engineers, Singapore

Vital topics that will benefit plant designers and operators to achieve optimum pumping solutions in water and wastewater applications. With KSBs vast experience in this field, comprehensive research was conducted at Technical University of Berlin in Germany to establish guidelines on several aspects of pump station design and piping works. These guidelines will serve to equip the participants with good engineering practices and provide recommendations for building new pump stations or refurbishing the existing structures.

Most disputes between contracting parties of construction contracts mainly concern two basic issues, namely: (1) Does an order given by the contract administrator constitute ordering the contractor to perform works which are beyond the scope of works initially stated in the contract at the time when it was signed? and (2) Should the Date of Completion initially stated in the contract at the time it was entered into be postponed without penalising the contractor? It is because of different answers are given to these two question by different contracting parties that gives rise to these disputes. The real cause is the lack of true and thorough understanding or complete misunderstanding of the terms and conditions of the contract the contracting parties have entered into. Resulting from the aforesaid, considerable time and money have been unnecessarily spent in resolve these disputes; and in the course of doing so, lawyers have been enriched. This short course is organized with the view to help participants to establish such understanding

Terrorism has become a serious threat in the world. This threat cannot be ignored. The main terrorist weapon is a bomb made from high explosives, with civilian buildings being a common target. Terrorists usually want to create chaos and maximize casualties. A growing emphasis is therefore being placed on anti-terrorism protection of civilian buildings. In Singapore, it has been recognized that iconic structures as well as structures where mass congregation is likely, may be soft targets for attack. Thus blast provisions are now an integral part of the design of major civilian facilities, e.g. hospitals, large hotels, shopping centres, stadia etc. In addition, buildings housing critical infrastructure, e.g. electrical sub-stations, are other likely targets.

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.

The new 43km Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) is part of Singapore Land Transport Authority's (LTA) vision to double the length of the island's railways system by 2030. The project will be opened in five phases from 2019 to 2024. The TEL will be completely underground, comprising of 31 stations connecting Gardens by the Bay in central Singapore with Woodlands in the north and Bedok in the east. The TEL will interchange with five existing metro lines at seven stations strategically located to help alleviate crowding. One of the key challenges with the project is that the Marina Bay area, through which the line will pass, is already densely populated with two pre-existing railway lines, the North-South Line and Circle Line, already in place.
