The rapid urbanisation of Singapore in the past few decades has formed a spider web of subsurface utility facilities including power cables, street lighting, fiber optic and telecommunication cables, gas mains, water mains, sewer pipes, drainage system, signal cables (trac lights), etc. In many cases, MRT and road tunnels are also competing for the space. Damage to these facilities during construction work can incur significant financial and non-financial losses, disruptions in services to consumers and businesses as well as project delays. Legislation is introduced, inter alia, as one of the measures to minimise the frequency of occurrence of damage to these subsurface utility facilities.
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 workshop will be useful to Technical Executives, Supervisors, Project Managers, Project Coordinators, Contract Administrators, Architects, Quantity Surveyors, Company Directors, Developers, Safety Practitioners, Professional Engineers and Engineers who need to handle Construction Works.
