Professional Engineers Board PEB (PDUs) - 5 Units (APPROVED)

Continuing Education and Training (CET) - 6 hours (APPROVED)

In the opening address by Mr Hawazi Daipi, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Education and Manpower at the launch of SCAL's Construction Safety, Health and Security Campaign,3rd July 2014,e2i (Employment and Employability Institute), he mentioned that at end June this year, the construction sector saw 17 fatalities, up from 11 fatalities over the same period last year; there were also more major injuries over the same period this year compared to last year; and in the first five months of this year,there were 71 incidents,a 15% increase from the same period last year. He is of great concern that if this trend continues, the construction sector may end the year with a higher fatality and major injury rate than in 2013. He urged the industry to adopt a proactive approach towards better WSH. Irresponsible stakeholders who cut corners and put workers and others unnecessarily at risk will face tougher enforcement action. In this regard, it is critical for the construction sector to take necessary safety measures to prevent the occurrence of workplace accidents which could lead to injury and fatality and face punitive action which would affect the sector's reputation, productivity and profitability.
This one-day course gives an overview of the practical safety measures that can be adopted to enhance the construction safety in a typical construction work site.
