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.

Whilst the ideal of adopting a zero-waste approach, on grounds of sustainable construction, is well understood, to achieve it in practice can be challenging. A great deal of research has been undertaken worldwide on recycled aggregates and their use in construction and the standards/codes are slowly becoming more receptive.However, just as in the case of natural aggregates, it is important to understand how best to develop the use of recycled aggregates. Based on the vast amount of information, collated from over 1400 publications originating globally from over 65 countries, analysed and evaluated, and presented in over 600 print pages in a book form, this workshop aims to discuss the production, characteristics and use of recycled aggregates in mortar, concrete, geotechnics and road pavements. In addition, environmental impact arising from the use of the materials will be addressed.References will be made to the related standards and codes, as well as case studies undertaken using recycled aggregates. The book, used as course notes, is structured in an incisive and easy to digest manner and is particularly suited for aggregate suppliers, ready-mixed concrete producers, design engineers, specifiers, contractors, as well as academics and researchers.

The SS 638 : 2018 (formerly CP 5) and SS 650 : 2019 Parts 1&2 (formerly CP 88 Parts 1&2) are mandatory requirements under the Electricity (Electrical Installations) Regulations in Singapore. The standards set out the safety rules and wiring practices that shall be observed in carrying out low voltage design, operation and maintenance works by persons or parties involved, such as licensed electrical workers, electrical contractors, consultant firms, testing companies, supervisors and workers engaged in electrical wiring and fitting works, etc. The aim is to ensure safety, especially from electric shock and fire in the use of electricity. The implementation of these standards has helped to reduce the number of electrocution and fire incidents in the use of electricity occurring over the years.

The Collaborative Alliance Conference (CAC) is a continuation of the previous BOA-ACES Conferences in 2017 and 2018. The inauguration of this new conference reflects accurately the aspiration of collaboration. Seven organisations have come together for this effort.Board of Architects (BOA),Professional Engineers Board (PEB),Association of Consulting Engineers Singapore (ACES),The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES),Real Estate Developers Association of Singapore (REDAS),Singapore Contractors Association Ltd (SCAL), andSingapore Institute of Architects (SIA).The theme for the 2019 Conference isFuture Economy: Towards a more enterprising and pro-business transformation.The built environment sector value chain is one of the most extensive in the Singapore economy. The sector contributes significantly to the positive transformation of the physical landscape and the socio-economic development of the nation. It also contributes significantly to the well-being of our community. The launch of the Industry Transformation Maps comes with initiatives for deepening partnerships between the private and public sectors. There are also calls for greater integration across the various sectors in the industry. Integration will bring about synergies, with hopes to shift mind-sets towards organizing resources. In turn, the quality of jobs will be elevated, and people will be upskilled. Innovation and internationalization will help us to remain competitive in the future global economy.Discussion Theme:1. Enterprising & Innovative Economy;2. Progressive Business; and3. Internationalisation.This annual conference is designed to gather the build environment fraternity, as well as its various stakeholders in the value chain together, to debate, share and exchange views on the challenges and growth prospects of the built environment sector.CPD: PDU to be confirmed

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.
