Collapse is every engineers worst nightmare. Fortunately, not every engineer must go through the experience of a collapse first- hand as we can all learn from the mistakes of others. This course aims to impart knowledge by way of sharing examples of structural engineering failures so engineers can learn how not to repeat such mistakes. It will also cover the relevant areas of SS EN 1992 series on Design of Concrete Structures, with reference to structural engineering failures

Development projects are increasingly demanding as the clients becomes more sophisticated and requires their project to be built with better productivity and sustainability. These materials and method of construction may be considered as a means to achieve sustainability and improve productivity under the right conditions. Stakeholders (Designers, Resident Engineers, Resident Technical Officers, Site Supervisors, etc) would need to have some understanding of how these materials and method can be used as they might be handling projects involving them.

Formwork structures have always been a highly hazardous item inthe construction industry. Continuing failures of formworks inSingapore have raised considerable alarm in the industry, thegovernment and the public.To address these concerns, and to update an outdated Code ofPractice for formwork, a Workgroup was formed in 2012 to developa new Code of Practice, SS580.This one-day course on formwork design and safety to revisedstandards and EuroCode aims to accomplish the following: Provide background material to and useful information onimproved standards in this area for this critical topic inworkplace safety; Present the basics of safe design of formwork structures andessential design requirements of SS580; Describe significant parts of the new Code of Practice forFormwork SS580:2012 to facilitate its use by designers andconstructors; Review a number of failure of formworks in Singapore andabroad to convey an understanding of causes; Discuss techniques to identify and evaluate the hazards, andmanage the risks; and, Offer practical guidelines for good practice in formworkdesign, erection, use, dismantling, inspection, andsupervision.The focus will be on basic concepts and procedures currently in usefor formwork in the construction industry.Objectives will include identification of principal contributory factors to formwork failures and their underlying rootcauses, and discussing how the new Code can eliminate or alleviate the problems.

Contractors and builders would have to face the Authorities and even the media when such incidents take place. On site, project owners and contractors look to the contract and particularly the insurance coverage for compensation. This one day course will be ideal for professional engineers, construction engineers, project managers, Consultants and other project team members who may wish to expand their technical knowledge of this specialised contract and site safety element

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.

Structural steel is still in demand for their high quality and productivity while stainless steel and aluminium has appealing qualities leading to an increasing use in the Construction Industry. Participantswill have a better understanding on various corrosion methods on structural steellike hot dip galvanising, anti-corrosion paint & coating. Issues related to inspection, maintenance and repair of steel structures will also be discussed.

In any large-scale public or private housing developments, physical infrastructure such as earthworks, roads, drains, sewers and utilities, arecritically needed not only to enable the physical development of but also support modern community living in the new housing estates. Equip participants with the fundamental knowledge in infrastructure planning by introducing them to the key aspects in the planning processes.

Insitu concrete construction are commonly found in Singapore , in the building of apartments, office and commercial buildings, port facilities, MRT stations and tunnels, bridges and flyovers, flatted factories and other structures. Insitu concrete must be well supervised in order to obtain the best out of this material and to ensure durable structures with very minimal maintenance. Target Audiences : Resident Engineers and Resident Technical Officers

This Competency Requirement document specifies the performance criteria, underpinning knowledge, range and context for the design, training and assessment of the Design for Safety Professionals (DfSP) Course. Learners of this course will gain the knowledge and skills for fulfilling the roles of the construction in accordance with the guideline on Design for Safety and Health in Buildings and Structures.

Association of Consulting Engineers, Singapore
