Description:

The construction industry is important to Singapore’s economic growth, contributing nearly 5% of GDP in 2015. During construction, however, projects could pose a significant risk to environmental health, potentially causing noise pollution or the spread of infectious vector-borne diseases such as dengue and malaria. Construction practices that inadequately address these issues can have damaging implications, such as adversely affecting the health and well-being of workers on-site and neighbouring communities. A balance between operational and environmental concerns is therefore crucial to ensure that timely completion of projects does not come at the cost of endangering our health and environment. The scope of this course will cover foundational concepts relating to noise and vector-borne diseases, as well as key sources and health impacts relating to noise pollution and vector-borne diseases from construction sites. Management and control measures to address these concerns will also be discussed.
