 1 DAY SEMINAR ON TURBIDITY CURTAIN FOR EARTH CONTROL MEASURES - 2ND RUN
 Introduction - Implementation of effective earth control measures at construction sites is essential at all construction sites. For water bodies which are raw water sources for potable water and/or need for recreational purposes, high turbidity of the water in the water body will affect the treatment costs for potable water and/or the recreational use. For works in such water bodies, turbidity curtain shall be installed. The works including the design, fabrication and installation of the primary and secondary turbidity curtains shall ensure that the turbidity of water in the water bodies around the works shall not exceed the pre-existing levels or 50mg/l, whichever is greater. This seminar will cover both the design and construction aspects for turbidity curtains and projects reference are also included in the seminar.

 HUMAN FACTORS ENGINEERING AND ERGONOMICS
 Human factors engineering and ergonomics is concerned with the design of the interface where human meets machine. The interface may be physical (the controls on a vehicle) or psychological (process information on a computer display). Control may be via the arms, legs, head, etc. Input may be via the eyes (visual), ears (auditory), vibratory, temperature, pressure, olfaction, etc. A well-designed interface requires good understanding of human anthropometry, capabilities, and limitations. This course teaches technologists to design systems that take advantage of what humans are good at versus machines. It gives an appreciation also of what tasks should be better left to machines. HFE and ergonomics is a field of study. It provides a set of design principles that focus on the most important element in any system that is the human.

 FORENSICS ENGINEERING FOR CIVIL, STRUCTURAL AND GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERS - TECHNICAL AND LEGAL ISSUES
 Construction failures often led to litigation process which could have serious consequences for developers, consultants, contractors and individuals in terms of structural rehabilitation and loss of business or life. Successful diagnosing of cause of failures, assessing its consequences, and presenting the findings convincingly are important to this process. Investigation of such failure will provide necessary lessons to be learned by construction professionals so that recurrence of such failures could be eliminated or minimized. Forensic engineering is a field which looks into the causes of deficiencies and failures in construction projects and other facilities and helps in the process of testifying in judicial proceedings. This program will highlight the importance of forensic engineering in the investigation of construction failures and subsequent litigation process, common deficiencies in building and geotechnical structures. This program is designed for Practicing Engineers, Consultants, Contractors, Facility Management Professionals, Legal Professionals, Insurance Professionals and those who are interested in forensic engineering topics.

 BCA-SCI 1½ DAY JOINT WORKSHOP ON RECYCLED AND SECONDARY AGGREGATES AND THEIR USE IN CONSTRUCTION
 Over 30 billion tonnes of non-renewal resource in the form of aggregates are used per annum worldwide in the construction sector. A significant amount of this can potentially be replaced by recycled and secondary aggregates (RSAs). Funded jointly by BCA’s Sustainable Construction Capability Development Fund and the Singapore construction industry, a state of art review of global knowledge from over 4000 publications on RSAs and their use in construction, undertaken by Prof R K Dhir OBE and his team over 2½ years, has recently been concluded. In this workshop, he will discuss the salient aspects of this review relating to potential use of recycled aggregates (RA), glass cullet (GC) and sewage sludge incinerated bottom ash (SIBA) in concrete, geotechnical, road pavement and other applications.

 5-DAY SHORT COURSE ON MODERN PROTECTIVE STRUCTURES (QUALIFIED FOR 30 PDUS BY PEB)
 The world is not as peaceful as it was expected after the end of the Cold War, the need to protect both military facilities and civilian populations from explosive accidents or hostilities is real. We have observed an increasing need to protect against industrial explosive accidents, criminal activities, social/subversive unrest, regional military conflicts, and increased activities of very determined terrorist organizations. This problem may, in fact, exceed the previous reasons for military-sponsored work on fortifications. Careful attention must be devoted to typical modern civilian and military facilities whose failure could severely disrupt the social and economic infrastructure of nations. Many engineering, R&D, safety and security organizations need to: • Know how to assess hazards and abnormal energetic loading incidents. • Have access to knowledge on how such facilities (office buildings, schools, hospitals, power stations, industrial facilities, etc.) behave under blast, shock, impact, and fire loads. • Know how to design such facilities to protect lives and property, and to conduct effective rescue operations and forensic investigations. This overview course on protective structures is aimed at addressing planning, security assessment, and technical issues dealing with mitigating the severe effects associated with explosive incidents (e.g., blast, shock, impact, etc.). Activities related to several design topics will be discussed (e.g., hardened mail room, building protected from external attack, protected buildings in industrial settings, etc.).

 ONE DAY COURSE ON WORKING SAFELY AT HEIGHT (42ND RUN)
 Construction, shipping and manufacturing industries are the most prone to the hazards of working at height, and have attracted the most attention in Singapore’s quest for improved workplace safety. Working at height is the biggest single cause of accidents, and falling from height the biggest cause of fatalities. Not only Singapore but the entire world suffers from this common source of accidents and injuries, to the point that there is a lot of information available on this topic. However, there is also considerable misunderstanding of both the causes of the accidents and proper ways to prevent or reduce the risks. The persisting problems with working at height in Singapore demand that professionals serious about controlling the risks of working at height should know more than the basics of the activity, beyond the “Do”s and “Don’t”s. The recent “Code of Practice for Safely Working at Height” should be thoroughly understood and applied to minimize the accidents in this regard. This course will provide the extra background required to understand the complexities of the problem. The presentation will be mainly keyed to the Code of Practice.
