The WSH (Design for Safety) Regulations will be effective from 1 Aug 2016. It requires stakeholders such as Developers, Designers and Contractors to work together to address the risk at source and plan for the construction work, so as to identify and eliminate, as far as reasonably practicable, foreseeable risk(s) to the safety or health of any person (i) carrying out or liable to be affected by construction work for the structure, (ii) for whom the structure is a workplace, including an individual who maintains or cleans the structure, or anything in or on the structure, or (iii) who carries out or is liable to be affected by the demolition of the structure.The Design Phase is the earliest opportunity to incorporate Safety into a construction project. Just as productivity can be enhanced with early planning, so is the greatest impact for safety. Designing for safety starts at the conceptual and planning phases of a project with collective and conscious decisions by stakeholders about the design, methods of construction and later demolition, and also the materials used which enhance the safety of the building or structure.In 2008, WSH Council launched the Guidelines on Design for Safety in Buildings and Structures, followed by the DfS Coordinator Course in 2010. In addition to building DfS apabilities of stakeholders, WSH Council has developed the DfS Recognition Scheme which was launched in 2011. Consisting of the DfS Mark and DfS Award, the Scheme aims to recognize competent and outstanding projects that have addressed risk through design and hence ensure safe & timely completion of the project.

This programme supports the development of leadership capability in Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD). The programme is hosted by the Centre for Systems Engineering and Innovation at Imperial College London. Designed for C-Suite Executives, Senior Management and top decision makers of the sector, this programme is a combination of learning journeys, keynote lectures, and executive discussions with leading academicians, DfMA experts and practitioners from UK to understand how DfMA process from design, fabrication to assembly can be optimized; and apply digital strategy to DfMA projects.

This course is design to assist engineer to prepare for Practical Professional Exam in Civil Engineering. The syllabus of the exam is very wide; many engineers do not know how to prepare for the exam. This course uses systemic approach to cover major topics. This course has three modules and it will be helpful for candidate to attend all three modules, however, candidates may also attend individual module to suit their work schedule. Work example will be discussed during the course with illustration on how regulatory requirement shall be applied.

Modern Asset Management (AM) system for infrastructure and physical asset, which requires a framework and compliance with relevant international standard such as ISO 55000. The challenges when the asset owners are trying to translating it this into a proper AM system enabling prioritization for appropriate strategy and action plan to improve the entire quality of AM relevant process. This evening talk presents how to improve the technical quality of the process including the trend in AM such as Asset Health and Risk index methodologies in the electrical utility content.

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.

Working in certain areas of a workplace or factory can be hazardous. According to the statistics, in the past 5 years, the number of fatalities were in the fifties and sixties across all industries in Singapore. Technology has stepped up to create safety measures and organizations should explore the use of technology to improve the safety and health of workers. This seminar is about the sharing from academia and organizations which have embraced technology to enhance the safety and health of workers. Technology can be a great help in shaping a culture of safety by eliminating hazards or minimizing risk.

Comprehensive and well-coordinated Infrastructure planning is a prerequisite in developing a new town or housing estate and is carried out in tandem with the master town planning and well in advance of any physical developments. It serves to establish the full infrastructure requirements and guide their timely implementation thereby ensuring quality, efficiency and cost-effectiveness in the infrastructure provisions for the proposed development. Equip participants with the fundamental knowledge in infrastructure planning by introducing them to the key aspects in the planning processes.

Safety in construction sites is of paramount importance not only to protect oneself but also to ensure safety for fellow site personnel on site. This programme is for stakeholders in construction projects (Resident Engineers, Resident Technical officers, Site Supervisors etc) and it explains the laws on safety for construction site and discusses construction safety for the various site operations commonly executed in a construction project.Participants will know how the current laws related to safety in Singapore protect them and their fellow site personnel. They will be able to supervise and/or carry out daily site operations with a focus on safety. They are able to identify hazards related to various site activities and take steps to control risks arising from such hazards.
