In today’s workplace safety, there were many concerns pertaining to unfair dismissal of workers as many employers tend to blame workers for occupational accidents and injuries rather than working to create a safe and healthy workplace.
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).
