SAFETY ISSUES ARE PROJECT MANAGEMENT ISSUES

SAFETY ISSUES ARE PROJECT MANAGEMENT ISSUES

by MOHAMED BIN MOHD NURUDDIN

 

ABSTRACT

When accidents ,mishaps or even disasters occur as a result of construction activities the relevant authorities, in particular, the Department of Safety and Health (DOSH) conduct investigation to know the root cause of the accident, to determine whether the parties contributing to the accident have performed their responsibilities in accordance with the procedures and in conformance with the prescribed legal provisions, to determine the person or persons responsible and hold them accountable, and to mitigate the impact of the accident on the victims. The investigation is a very important activity not only because of the above mentioned reasons but more so for us to understand why such accident occur and what can we do to avoid repeating similar mistakes in future so that we may reduce the probability of similar accident occurring. However, to be effective the investigation must include all those who play decisive roles in the value chain of the construction projects. Project management is one such discipline. This paper explores why project managers who are deemed competent in construction project management or at least a project management perspective, must be a member or forms the basis of the investigation so that an existing competency lacuna in the investigating team can be address.

INTEGRATION OF QUALITY MEASURE IN PROJECT CONTROL SYSTEM

INTEGRATION OF QUALITY MEASURE IN

PROJECT CONTROL SYSTEM

by Dr Abdul Rahman Ramakrishna Bin Abdullah

 

ABSTRACT

Time and cost overruns are rampant in construction projects and it happens despite the use of established project control system. An in-depth study on the existing system establishes that non-evaluation of the quality performance contributes to its weakness. The research measures quality performance using material data and its integration results substantial improvement in the projects controlled.

The contribution of the research lies on the development of a method of deriving quality measure and by integrating the measure in the existing control system pave the way for projects to be evaluated from all angles of time, cost and quality performances.

he construction industry is an important cog in the wheel propelling the Malaysian economy. The market size of the industry is RM43billion based on the value of gross output in 2004. The industry then provides work for many ranging from professionals such as architects, engineers and surveyors to main contractors, sub contractors,
suppliers and ultimately manual labourers who are employed by these contractors. The industry works and will only continue to work on the premise that these people
are paid for work and services that have been properly rendered. The quantum of payment for work and services rendered are often huge in the thousands, if not in the millions of Ringgit.
