Structural Concrete Works in Building and Civil Engineering Projects And Common WSH Hazards & Risk Management 2.0 at Construction Sites 4th Run 

Part 1 : Structural Concrete Works in Building and Civil Engineering Projects

Duration: 6 hours

Objective
Concrete is one of the most widely used construction materials. Concrete structures are generally expected to provide adequate performance for the entirety of their service life with little maintenance. Starting from concrete design, advantages of concrete structures can be realised when good practices are adopted throughout the project life. This course is organised to prepare civil, structural and construction engineering practitioners, developers, builders and specialist builders, Site Supervisors, Resident Engineers and Resident Technical Officers on the understanding of structural concrete works in building and civil engineering projects in Singapore.

 
Course Outline
1. Concrete and Concreting Works

 -  Standards, Codes and Regulations

 -  Concrete Specifications

 -   Concreting Works

 

 2.  Special Concrete

  - Sprayed Concrete

  - Reinforced Concret

 

 3.  Concrete Structures

  - Reinforcing Concrete

  - Precast and Prestressed Concrete

  - Water-resistanc

 

 4.  Concrete Repairs

 

Target Audiences 
This course will benefit civil, structural and construction       engineering practitioners, builders and specialist builders, Site Supervisors, Resident Engineers and Resident Technical Officers appointed to undertake structural concreting design, construction and maintenance works in building and civil engineering projects
 

Part 2: Common WSH Hazards & Risk Management 2.0 at Construction Sites
Duration: 4 hours
  
Objective
The characteristics of the construction sector present multi-fold and unique WSH challenges. While the construction sector continues to be an important sector of the Singapore economy, it is also one of the more hazardous and riskier workplaces. More vigilance is needed and the objective of this module is to inculcate and raise awareness in stakeholders (including qualified persons such as Professional Engineers, and Registered Architects) on the common hazards that are prevalent in construction sites. This will enable them to understand the control measures that are implemented onsite to manage and mitigate such common hazards. The course will cover common hazards such as working at heights, falling objects, machinery and electrical hazards.

Participants’ perspectives will be enhanced through the sharing of case studies of previous incidents/accidents. Relevant legal and other requirements as well as statutory duties of relevant stakeholders such as occupier, employer, self-employed persons will be covered. References will be made to the Workplace Safety & Health (WSH) Act and relevant guidelines. Since its inception in 2006, Risk management (RM) is an important tool in identifying hazards, assessing the risk, and implementing measures to control or minimise the risk. Every workplace should put in place an effective RM to ensure that all employees are working in a safe and healthy environment. To help companies better assess risks and hazards at work, the Ministry of Manpower and the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council have enhanced the risk management framework. The key principals under the Risk Management 2.0, or RM 2.0 will be covered.

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

1.        Common workplace safety and health hazards that are prevalent in construction sites. Common  hazards such as working at heights, falling objects, machinery and electrical will be covered.

2.        Control measures for common hazards which includes best practices which can be and are  implemented onsite to reduce risks to as low as possible.

3.        Statistics of workplace accidents and injuries in the construction industry.

4.        Sharing of case studies of fatal accidents in the construction industry.

5.        Coverage of relevant legal and other requirements. Statutory duties of relevant stakeholders such as occupier, employer, self-employed persons under the Workplace Safety and Health Act will be covered

6.        Introduction to risk management and risk assessment. Enhancements to the risk management framework, the approved code of practice for Risk Management as well as key principles to Risk Management 2.0 will be covered.

7.        Factors influencing and driving risk controls and management within an organisation.

8.       Driving risk controls upstream that considers proximity between hazardous work activities, compatibility of work activities, non-routine work activities and environmental conditions. .

 
Target Audience
This course will inculcate and raise awareness in stakeholders (including qualified persons such as Professional    Engineers , Registered Architects) on the common hazards that are prevalent in construction sites. This will enable them to understand the control measures that are implemented onsite to manage and mitigate
