     According to the statements in the program of RTHK (Radio Television Hong Kong) from training and development executive director of Construction Industry Council, Charles Wong Doon-yee(黃敦義), construction industry is thriving by following the beginning of Ten Major Infrastructure Projects as well as Urban Renewal Projects, thus, most of the newcomers to construction industry is required in society. It is delighted to me to become one of the members who devote themselves to this industry and to be provided an opportunity of work placement by Construction Industry Council Training Academy and relative companies. Moreover, the engineering project of my work placement is addition and alteration works (A&A Works) at

    ththlevel 1 to level 3 at sunshine City during the period approximately from 10 May, 2010 to 5

    May, 2014. In order to share my experience learned in the previous work placement, I would like to report the progress in the period of placement after organizing and analyzing whole the information which I recorded in the site placement daily reports and numerous photos.

Experience of placement

     According to my site placement daily report recorded, the knowledge which I learned from work placement can be divided into four parts: safety and tidying in site, comprehension of plans progress of construction, quality of construction as well as comprehension of construction drawing.

    Safety and tidying in site

     It is vitally important that we must be cautious for various forms of dangers in site whenever, therefore, I deem that learning safety of site is the first step for throwing ourselves into construction industry. Succeeding articles reveal diverse types of hazardous circumstance, and introduce several ways for resolving those issues.

    Dealing with large hole on floor

     The photos unfold the location of the large hole (picture 4 and 5) and we have deal with the problem not only by setting fencing included top fencing, middle fencing, base board and mesh fence, but also by covering wood board fixed by cement slurry. Picture 5 is the hole seen from an angle of below floor.

Placement of fire extinguisher

     On sixteenth of July, I was sent to assist in placement of new fire extinguishers. During

    the work, I realized that each area of a square of 200 meter must deposit a fire extinguisher at

    least. Moreover, when we replace the fire extinguishers we must pay attention to the next

    maintenance date printed on the label of fire extinguishers (shown by picture 6).

    Owing to the next

    maintenance date of

    th19Jan13, it is required

    to be replaced before

    th19Jan13; otherwise we

    would be punished by

     Realized the process of replacing fire extinguishers in the period of work, I would like to

    reveal it to you by following pictures and brief descriptions. 1) Founding and remembering the positions of fire extinguishers(A, B, C, D)

     Testing drainage capacity

     Inasmuch as the coming of monsoon, it is necessary to ensure that the rainwater though those louver windows cannot adversely impact on any mechanical systems in electrical and mechanical rooms. Hence, we need to regularly remove any sundries on those drainages and test the drainage whether can flow the rainwater away.

     In the process of the testing, there are two techniques required, including seeking the higher and lower positions in the lines of drainages, and the positions of drainage holes.

     Due to the physical characteristic of water which is flowing to lower positions, we can know the water flow directions by recognizing higher and lower terrains, as the succeeding picture (picture 7). It is one of the methods to predict the flow directions.
