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.

Learners of this course will gain the knowledge and skills for fulfilling the roles of the construction Design for Safety Professional (DfS Professional) in accordance with the WSH (DfS) Regulations effective from 1 August 2016. Upon completion of this unit, Learners will have the skills and knowledge to function as a DfS Professional which purposes to: (1) Assist the Developer to identify and address means to eliminate or mitigate the risks inherent in the design of a construction project through conducting DfS review meetings and maintaining a DfS register so as to reduce the safety and health risks during the construction, maintenance / repair phase, and demolition of the building and structure; and (2)Coordinate the flow of the construction project safety and health risks information among the stakeholders from the design stage, to construction stage until the handover to the Developer for occupation and maintenance.The skill and knowledge learnt during this course are likely to be applied in the following activities: (1) Facilitate DfS Review Meeting that involves the relevant stakeholders to identify and address safety and health risks associated with construction project. (2) Maintain records of safety and health issues arising from the DfS Review Meeting and actions taken. (3) Coordinate the flow of relevant safety and health information among all stakeholders of a construction project at appropriate time.

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.

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 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.
