Glass has come to be a ubiquitous material, present in virtually all areas of buildings. As a construction material, glass is unique in many aspects, including its brittle nature, extreme longevity when handled correctly, and its unicity as a transparent material. This exceptional visit to a glass processing plant offers the opportunity for a small group of interested engineers to learn more about this unique material, its production method, its many different varieties, its uncommon structural behaviour, as well as specific production techniques.

Workplace Safety and Health (Risk Management) Regulations require stakeholders such as employers, self-employed persons and principals to have the responsibility of identifying safety and health hazards at the workplace and taking appropriate actions to eliminate the hazards or mitigate the risks associated with the hazards. Risk assessment and management is the key to reduce the risks at source. Participant who attends this course will have an in-depth understanding and knowledge on the concepts and methodologies of risk assessment and management. This course will also provide hands-on experience in the risk assessment for construction activities and development of risk management implementation plan.

The Build Smart Conference provides a platform for practitioners from different disciplines to gain insights of overseas and local advancement towards construction productivity, its technologies, processes and concepts, business case, as well as exemplary projects. Launched in 2011, the Build Smart Conference has been a key event, which is an industry-wide campaign to raise awareness in enhancing construction productivity. The theme for this year revolves around Unlocking Innovation through Digital Transformation focusing on technological advancement and best practices in Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD). The international and local experts will share on their experiences on topics such as application of digitisation through exemplary international and local IDD projects that enhance our construction productivity.

This course covers topics rarely covered to any great extent at undergraduate level. The emphasis is on hand-based methods. They can be used directly for design or for the checking of computer-based designs. However, rather than just providing an alternate design method of equal difficulty to conventional procedures, it will be found that many problems can be tackled surprisingly easily using these powerful methods. The methods are an aid to understanding. Many worked examples are presented showing how the various methods can be used. The emphasis is on the use of the methods for practical problem solving, so little theory is presented. Appropriate reference will also be made to SS EN 1992 series on Design of Concrete Structures

Lifting plan is a set of plans which is created for use in any crane lifting operations and it consists of all the important information that must be considered in a lifting operation thus ensuring that the lifting operation is carried out safely. It aims to facilitate consensus amongst all relevant stakeholders including the lifting crew for a safe outcome. Under the WSH legal requirements, all lifting operations shall be accompanied by a lifting plan. This BCA Academys practical course will enable construction site personnel to prepare a proper lifting plan for crane lifting operations and implement the lifting plan in a crane lifting activity. At the end of the training, participants would be able to prepare a lifting plan with good understanding of legal requirements, load charts, crane safety and lifting requirements,and be able to apply the lifting plan at a simulated crane location.

bizSAFE is a programme which is administered by the Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSHC) tailored to assist the companies to build up their workplace safety and health capabilities. The programme provides a 5-level approach to help companies build up their capabilities progressively. Companies participating in this programme will gain recognition and benefit from having a comprehensive WSH system in place. To start the bizSAFE journey, an enterprises top management has to sign up for this bizSAFE Level 1.

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.

12 Nov 2018 to 12 Nov 2018

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.

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.
