Essential Knowledge in

Local Regulations and Construction Practices

 

INTRODUCTION

The stakeholders of construction projects often incur liabilities due to their failure to recognise and comply with certain implied obligations which maybe arouse during the design and construction processes. It is, therefore, imperative for the project parties to understand the implied obligations and liabilities prior to the commencement of construction projects.

 

OBJECTIVE

Up-to-date knowledge of local regulations and construction practices are key to the site supervisors especially the Resident Engineers (RE) and Resident Technical Officers (RTO) to deliver their duties diligently and effectively.

This course will provide site supervisors essential knowledge in the areas of regulatory requirements, safety regulations, environmental management at construction sites, code requirements on construction practices and site supervision. With recent amendments in the Building Control Regulations to recognise graduates from more foreign universities as REs and RTOs for local projects, this course will be useful to engineers with foreign qualifications, and others who wish to be updated on local construction practices.
