 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.

 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.

 ROCK MECHANICS AND EMPIRICAL METHODS IN ROCK ENGINEERING
 This two-day short course will cover some key elements of the lecturer’s internationally applied developments in rock mechanics and rock engineering. The course will start with a thorough treatment of the Q-system of rock mass classification and its many site-interpretation and tunnel-design aspects. Extensive work in TBM tunneling, with the QTBM prognosis method for estimating penetration rate PR and actual advance rate AR, will also be described, and illustrated by many case records. International experiences will be reflected in numerous case record examples, from hydropower projects and from metro projects, including a dramatic cavern collapse. Mapping techniques, core logging interpretation, and so-called 'histogram-logging' will be emphasized. Fundamentals of rock joint characterization will be covered as these are fundamental to many areas of rock engineering and numerical modelling.
