For PMEs working in the building and construction industry, the new 1-Day "DfS for PMEs” will leverage on the WSH (DfS) Regulations 2015 as well as real live cases that surround us to illustrate the importance of incorporating inherently safe design features into our environment. The course will cover DfS aspects of the whole live cycle of a building or structure from conceptualization, design, tender, construction, occupation, maintenance to demolition. Participants will be introduced to the “Guidelines on Design for Safety in Buildings and Structures”, the “Code of Practice on WSH Risk Management” published by MOM and the WSH Council as well as the WSH (DfS) Regulations 2015.
This course gives an overview of the common causes of workplace accidents and the stake holders’ duties and responsibilities under the respective legislations and common law. Court case judgments are used to illustrate the requirements of the stakeholders. Practical control measures to avoid/minimise risks of workplace accidents are covered.
Risk management is critical for businesses when it comes to survival, sustainability and success. For Singapore small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the construction sector, risk management is an essential tool to secure revenue and profits when the business landscape is cautiously optimistic. This one-day interactive workshop focuses on how SMEs can address Singapore’s risk landscape involving domestic regulatory requirements, business needs and organisations’ internal issues, in a systematic and productive manner.
The Public Sector Standard Conditions of Contract (PSSCOC) was developed by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) to enable a common contract form to be used in all public sector construction projects. Familiarity among users will reduce tendering efforts and promote greater efficiency in contract administration.
The PSSCOC for Construction Works was first published in 1995. It had undergone several reviews. The second and third editions were launched in July 1999 and January 2004 respectively. The fourth edition was launched in March 2005 to be in line with the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 2004 which came into operation in April 2005. The current version is the PSSCOC for Construction Works (Seventh Edition Jul 2014).
