he success of a development project depends largely on the effectiveness of the project manager and the-project team members who are involved in the project. Being a key member of the project team, it is important for the engineer to acquire the knowledge and skills of project management, so that they will be able to work closely with the project manager and contribute positively to the success of the projects.To achieve good quality construction works, it is important for the engineer to be able to manage the design process and supervise the construction work on site effectively. This course will also cover the effective management of design process by the engineers and effective supervision of construction works by the engineers and RTOs.This course will also cover the risk assessment and safety management of construction works, to provide a safe environment for all personnel working on site.In addition, this course will also touch on the skill sets required for managing projects overseas, particularly in China.

The objective of the course is to impart knowledge to the participant on the causes, prevention, inspection and rectification of cracks in concrete. In particular, cracking in concrete is explained and the allowance of its formation in design is covered. Cracks formed arising from workmanship issues are also covered. Appropriate references will be made to the Singapore Standard SS EN 1992 series on Eurocode 2 Design of concrete structures that allow cracks to form and possible ways of preventing cracking is also covered. Emphasis on how to assess the severity of the crack through a methodological approach is covered. Finally, various methods of rectification of the crack lines are covered including the appropriateness of the method to the type and nature of the crack being considered.

The construction industry is important to Singapores economic growth, contributing nearly 5% of GDP in 2015. During construction, however, projects could pose a significant risk to environmental health, potentially causing noise pollution or the spread of infectious vector-borne diseases such as dengue and malaria. Construction practices that inadequately address these issues can have damaging implications, such as adversely affecting the health and well-being of workers on-site and neighbouring communities. A balance between operational and environmental concerns is therefore crucial to ensure that timely completion of projects does not come at the cost of endangering our health and environment. The scope of this course will cover foundational concepts relating to noise and vector-borne diseases, as well as key sources and health impacts relating to noise pollution and vector-borne diseases from construction sites. Management and control measures to address these concerns will also be discussed.

This particular module will discuss the background of this Court of Appeal case and its direct impact on site supervisors as well as their employers. The course will also provide participants with an up-to-date essential knowledge of Singapores laws on negligence and the common law duty of RTO & RE (as well as engineers and other technical professional s) which are relevant to the engineering building construction (ECB) industries and are faced by or connected with ECB projects.
