The requirements for building plan submission prior to any commencement of building project ensure that building designers such as architects and engineers exercise due diligent in the fire safety design of building structures during the initial design phase. When construction commences upon building plan being approved, the fire safety works need to be inspected and certified by registered fire inspectors and the SCDF before the building project can attain the temporary occupation permit (TOP) as well as the Fire Safety Certificate (FSC) for occupation. Some building with critical fire life safety systems such as automatic fire detection and alarm systems, smoke control systems, automatic suppression systems, etc. are required to undergo periodic professional engineers’ inspection and testing as well as annual fire certificate (FC) inspection by the authority. This workshop will cover the essential requirements and processes of building fire safety inspection to help FSMs to establish an effective fire safety management program.
The Singapore Fire Code requires that buildings be designed with appropriate fire protection system. One of the key systems is the building’s fire-fighting system. These fire-fighting systems are probably the last line of defence when other early detection and suppression system fail to control the fire in its incipient stage. When the in-house company emergency response team (CERT) is activated to provide intervention, these fire-fighting systems are crucial to be functioning to enable the response personnel, including the SCDF personnel, to carry out fire-fighting operation. This workshop will cover the various types of fire-fighting systems and their corresponding inspection, testing and maintenance requirements.
This course gives an overview of the legislative requirements for high risk construction worksites as defined under the WSH (Construction) Regulations. The WSH (Operation of Cranes) Regulations which is legislated to deal with crane accidents at worksites will be highlighted in the discussion.
This course aims to provide an overview of the provisions in the Electricity Act, Telecommunications Act and other relevant legislation, codes of practice, etc. Pertaining to construction earthworks carrying out in the vicinity of the subsurface utility facilities. Participants will learn about the key requirements of the relevant legislation and control measures in the prevention of damage to the subsurface utility facilities.
The region has seen an increase in large infrastructure development projects cropping up in recent years. Accordingly, the demand for Construction and Engineering-related insurances has grown steadily to cover such risks. This one day intensive course comprising lectures and case studies will enable participants to acquire sound technical knowledge of one of the main Construction insurance classes to effectively appreciate this insurance policy and coverage. Issues of dealing with CAR claims aspects will also be addressed during this session.
