On 11 Jan 2017, our Branch held our first networks evening at the Marina Mandarin Hotel, along with the great company and catching up with fellow members – and, of course, the usual excellent food buffet. We also had the pleasure of having a presentation from Mr Philip Baker on Design for Safety. Mr Philip is a structural engineer by training and has been involved in health and safety and CDM since 1994. Philip gave an excellent presentation and shared his insights on a wide range of projects he had done.

As Singapore had introduced the Design for Safety legislation in 2016, this presentation was a very good insight to the requirements to establish such a management tool. There were several questions and the evening rounded off with our group photo.
