The Construction sectors WSH performance has shown improvement since the introduction of Implementing WSH 2018 for the Construction Industry Sector in Singapore in 2010. The fatality rate has dropped from 8.1 per 100,000 workers in 2009 to 5.5 per 100,000 workers in 2014. However, to make a lasting and long-term change, we need to create a mind-set of prevention throughout the entire Construction ecosystem.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) allows the building professionals of various disciplines to explore the building project digitally, before it is built. BIM can help to bring about greater integration and collaboration among the developers, designers, builders and fabricators across the construction value chain. BIM has been identified as one of the key technologies to be promoted under BCAs S$250-million Construction Productivity and Capability Fund (CPCF), which is part of the Governments efforts to help the construction industry improve productivity and enhance its capability. As such, BCA has drawn up a roadmap for the implementation of BIM on a large scale in the building and construction industry. Starting with architectural BIM e-submissions in 2013, BCA will mandate electronic submissions in BIM format for architectural, structural and M&E plans of building works for regulatory approval by 2015. This 2-Day BIM Planning Course is designed to address BIM uses and approaches for building developers and facility managers.
