Task 1

Each student has to submit a report of 2000 words based on a Site visit to /construction site organised by the module tutor. The report is about your observation of the working environment in that construction site and should include aspects like work at height, electricity, excavation, noise, dust, lighting PPE on site, welfare facilities etc. You need to discuss the prevailing conditions and compare it with relevant HSE/ Omani regulations.

Site visit

  • It is the responsibility of the student to attend the visit along with the class. You can submit the assignment only if you visit that particular workplace.
  • You can collect the required information by observing the workplace, talking to the employees etc. without creating any nuisance.
  • Absence of proper referencing will invite “plagiarism”.
  • For citation and referencing follow the Harvard referencing system strictly and all the written materials should be supported with proper citations and references in the report and the presentation.
  • You have to follow the specified word limit for the task. But remember that, quality matters, not quantity.
  • Use Microsoft Word for word processing. Use A4 paper size settings with 2.5cm margins all around.
  • Body text can be Times New Roman 12 point, Text is to be justified.
  • The pages should be numbered consecutively, starting with the title page.
  • The number of words must be shown at the end of the work submitted. However, content & title pages will not be counted to the total ‘word count’; neither will the list of reference at the end of the work.
  • Relevant photographs, diagrams etc. can be included in the report for better explanation. Colour prints will not carry any extra weightage.

Task 2
