Supervision of Underground Projects with Deep Excavation & Bored Tunneling (6 Hours)

Part 1: Supervision of ERSS and GBW Works for Deep Excavation Projects (2 Hours)

This session will give an introduction to the various types of temporary work for deep excavation projects.  These temporary works are either classified as Earth Retaining & Stabilising System (ERSS) or Geotechnical Building Work (GBW) by BCA depending on the excavation depth and retained height.  It is important to first understand the key factors affecting the design safety of the various types of ERSS and GBW, in order to be able to carry out the necessary supervision of these ERSS and GBW.  Therefore participants will be able to learn the important features of these types of ERSS and GBW design concept and construction sequence in this session.  The participants will also learn about the process of deep excavation management including managing the instrumentation & monitoring, and managing the groundwater control and ground settlement.  This 2 hour session will prepare the participants to be able to have good understanding of the deep excavation project and thus 

Part 2:  BCA Regulatory Framework for Supervision of Deep Excavation Projects Illustrated with Case Histories (1 Hour)

There are many current underground projects in Singapore such as Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Thomson East Coast Line (TEL), North South Corridor (NSC) highway, Deep Tunnel Sewerage System (DTSS), Singapore Power Underground Substation (UGSS), underground drainage, sewerage and water pipelines projects. Hence it is very important to have a comprehensive and clear regulatory framework to ensure deep excavation underground projects are carried out in a safe manner and the supervision of deep excavation underground projects are well managed.  This session will illustrate the BCA regulatory framework in Singapore for design submission approval and construction supervision and management of deep excavation projects.  This session will use some case histories to illustrate some of the more commonly encountered regulations to be complied with and it will also highlight some of the latest guidelines for supervision of deep excavation projects. 

Part 3:  Basic Principles and Key Performance Indicators for Supervision of Bored Tunneling & Pipe Jacking Works (2 Hours)

In this session, the participants will learn about the basic principles of segmental lining bored tunneling with Earth Pressure Balance Machine (EPBM) and Slurry Shield tunnel boring machine(Slurry TBM), as well as pipe jacking micro tunnel boring machine.  With this understanding, the participants will next learn about the various Key Performance Indicator (KPI) for the safe bore tunneling process using bored tunnel machine (TBM).  KPI for bored tunneling is important to ensure that the tunneling is safe and does not have adverse impact to the adjacent ground and buildings.  The participants will learn about the sequence of work for bored tunneling from construction of TBM shaft, erection of reaction frame, temporary rings, initial drive and main drive. This will equip the participant the necessary basic knowledge in supervision of bore tunneling works. 

Part 4:  BCA Regulatory Framework for Supervision of Tunneling Projects Illustrated with Case Histories (1 Hour)

It is very important to have a comprehensive and clear regulatory framework to ensure bored tunnelling underground projects are carried out in a safe manner and the supervision of these tunnelling underground projects are well managed.  This session will illustrate the BCA regulatory framework in Singapore for design submission approval and construction supervision and management for bored tunnelling works.  This session will use some case histories to illustrate some of the more commonly encountered regulations to be complied with and it will also highlight some of the latest guidelines for supervision of bored tunnelling works.

Part II: Safe Entry & Work in Confined Spaces Entry & Work – 2nd Edition (4 Hours)

Objective:
Confined space work is one of the most serious of all workplace hazards but is also one that is oftenunder-estimated. The unfortunate reality is that many stakeholders and workers do not fully understand the hazards and the risks that are “hidden” in confined spaces until actual entry and work needs to be performed in them. The objective of this module is to inculcate and raise awareness in participants (especially Resident Engineers, Resident Technical Officers and Resident Architects) on the hazards of confined space entry and work that are present in construction sites. This will enable them to understand the control measures that are implemented onsite to mitigate confined space hazards. Their perspectives will be enhanced through the sharing of legal and other requirements on confined space entry and work as well as accident case studies.

Course Outline/Outcomes:
This module will equip RE/RTOs (QSS) with the necessary WSH knowledge (including legal and other requirements for their course of work.

  • Definitions of confined spaces and examples of confined spaces 
  • Common confined space hazards onsite 
  • Lessons learnt from past confined space accidents / case studies 
  • Legal and other requirements relevant to confined space entry and work 
  • Good practices and control measures for confined space entry and work 
  • Risk management and risk assessment 
  • Permit to work system for confined space entry and work
