The active push for Singapore buildings to be green has generated a strong demand for a new "green collar" workforce. This has created an urgent need for associate professionals with the knowledge and skills to apply the latest knowledge and skills to apply the latest knowledge in green building technology (GBT) and mechanical services to design, maintain and manage green buildings.The Diploma in Mechanical Engineering (Green Building Technology) builds on the core of a mechanical engineering programme with an emphasis on GBT. GBT increases the efficiency in the use of building resources such as energy, water and building materials while reducing the impact they have on human health and the environment.

As the Singapore Government pushes for higher productivity in various sectors, more and more cranes will be deployed at various work places. Use of cranes at site involves many people from various organisations, such as the crane manufacturer, site occupier, crane contractor, and various sub-contractors that use the cranes. According to the latest Singapore Standard on Safe Use of Tower Cranes SS 559:2010, it is crucial that one person be appointed to have overall control of the cranes. This appointed person shall be notified formally in writing of their appointment. This course is aimed at anyone who is required to plan safe systems of work, using lifting equipment and intends to take up this position as an appointed person. It is recommended that prior to attending this course, individuals should have some experience of working with lifting equipment, especially mobile cranes and tower cranes.

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raised considerable alarm in the industry, thegovernment and the public.To address these concerns, and to update an outdated Code ofPractice for formwork, a Workgroup was formed in 2012 to developa new Code of Practice, SS580.This one-day course on formwork design and safety to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.

The objective of the course is to impart knowledge to the participant on the causes, prevention, inspection and rectification of cracks in concrete. In particular, cracking in concrete is explained and the allowance of its formation in design is covered. Cracks formed arising from workmanship issues are also covered. Appropriate references will be made to the Singapore Standard SS EN 1992 series on Eurocode 2 Design of concrete structures that allow cracks to form and possible ways of preventing cracking is also covered. Emphasis on how to assess the severity of the crack through a methodological approach is covered. Finally, various methods of rectification of the crack lines are covered including the appropriateness of the method to the type and nature of the crack being considered.

Ever since the Workplace Safety and Health Act was enacted in Singapore in 2006, the safety scene in Singapore has been revolutionized.Starting with the introduction of mandatory risk management for the three hazardous industries namely,construction, manufacturing, and shipyards, the requirement was extended to six other sectors including medical facilities and eating places in 2008, and in September 2011 it covered all workplaces in Singapore.The Code of Practice for Risk Management was introduced in 2011, and revised in 2012. A further revision is under way and will be released shortly.While many industries have caught on to the new approach to reducing accidents and improving safety at the workplace through risk management, confusion persists in certain quarters on the scope of risk management, and the methodology for proper risk assessment and control. To guide the practitioners and broaden the coverage of the Act to all sectors, the course aims to review the procedures and recent changes to the Code of Practice.Apart from reviewing and emphasizing the previous guidelines mainly focusing on small and medium enterprises,the new Code expands the application to large enterprises, and suggests the numerical 5 by 5 risk matrix as a viable option, the most recent changes pertaining to the impact and assessment of human factors.The course will cover relevant portions of SS 506: Part 2: 2009, Singapore Standard on Occupational Safety and Health Management, pertaining to hazard identification, risk assessment and determining controls.Lecturer will bring into the course his extensive experience with risk management theory and practice.

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.
