Human error is implicated in most,if not all,accidents and near misses. Worldwide industries which require high reliability are taking a Human Factors approach to improve safety within their workplaces.This intensive 3-day seminar provides training in the application of innovative methods for managing human error that are scientifically derived, empirically tested, and proven in the field. Participants will learn how to turn errors into information, information into knowledge, and knowledge into effective error management solutions.The course firstly introduces you to human factors theories and concepts followed by the taxonomy for categorising different types of errors which is very useful to establishing a useful database for analysis. Human Factors Analysis and Classification Systems (HFACS), an established method for identifying causes of errors, will be introduced. HFACS is a proven tool for identifying and analysing human error in complex, high-risk systems, and provides a clear understanding of the reasons errors occur so that effective intervention programs can developed. The Human Factors Intervention matriX (HFIX) is an innovative tool for mapping intervention strategies onto the specific forms of human error identified in the HFACS model. HFIX allows users to systematically generate comprehensive intervention strategies that directly target the underlying systemic causes of errors. Together, HFACS and HFIX provide a firm foundation upon which to build an effective error management program.You will be guided throughout the course in how to apply the knowledge, skills and methods covered in your specific industry, whether it is manufacturing, construction, marine and offshore or hospitality, through discussions, exercises and case studies.

This Symposium aims to encourage the adoption of Collaborative BIM to make the quantum leap. Invited speakers with actual experience in implementing Collaborative BIM methodology will share their success factors reaped, challenges and pitfalls that they encountered. It is a full-day conference with exhibition where BIM vendors and solution providers will demonstrate their latest capabilities on how to leverage BIM to realize our built environment more appropriately and efficiently, improving construction quality and efficiencies. Therefore, no generic talk about how good BIM is but focus on real benefits that can be realized so that the audience can learn and gain it immediately.

In the coming segment of the SPM-UniSIM Professional Talk Series Design for Safety Implications for the Construction Industry, we bring our focus to the recently gazetted Design-for-Safety regulations that now place duties on developers and designers to identify and address foreseeable risks throughout the lifecycle of a construction project. We are privileged to have two workplace safety and health experts, Ms Charlene Liew, Senior Manager (Legislations) of the Ministry of Manpower Singapore, and Er Ng Lee Chian, PE (Civil) and a practicing DfS Professional, to give colleagues an insight on this new regulation, its impact on the construction industry and the challenges of putting this initiative into practice.

This seminar aims to raise the safety standards of the industry so as to shape a safe built environment for Singapore. Experienced speakers from regulatory agencies including BCA, MOM and NEA will share on the new and upcoming changes to the regulations. To ease the adoption of the Eurocodes among Qualified Persons, tips on designing to the Eurocodes will be shared.Speakers will also cover the special precautions to be taken for projects located in densely built up areas in Singapore and the proper construction works to be carried out to eliminate any potential danger and damage. Sharing on the statutory requirements of the proposed regulations on Design for Safety (DfS) will be included in this seminar.
