Quality Supervision of Soil Nail Construction
PNAP 284 (Reissued as APP-135 in 2009) "Quality Supervision of Soil Nailing Works" was promulgated in October 2003 stipulating the supervision, testing and certification requirements of soil nailing works. This course aims to provide participants with technical training in quality supervision at various stages of soil nail construction. It highlights common anomalies encountered and introduces the use of non-destructive techniques to check the quality of constructed soil nails.
The medium of instruction is Cantonese (with English terms). A 30-minute written examination (multiple choice questions in both Chinese and English) will be held at the end of the course.
This course is intended for resident site staff (including ARE, SIOW/IOW, WS I/II), contractor’s site representatives (including foreman and site agent) and works supervisors in the private sector. It is also highly relevant to graduate engineers and professionals who want to know more about quality supervision of soil nail construction in Hong Kong.
A Certificate of Attainment will be issued to participants who have attended this one-day course and have passed the examination.
