ASSESSMENT TASK 1 – EXPLAINING CONTRACT CLAUSES In your own words, write down what the obligations and responsibilities for each party are. What procedures do you need to follow to comply with these? 1. Clause ; breach of contract (both the owner and builder) A breach of contract occurs when either party fails in their obligations as stated in the contract. Builders Obligations : Warranties as per Section 8 of the Domestic Building Contracts Act 1995 a) The builder has to carry out the contracted work in a proper and workman like manner as set out in the contract, plans and specifications b) The builder has to use good and suitable materials for the contracted works and unless stated in the contract these materials are to be new c) The
What are the specific regulations and safe working practices and procedures that apply to your work activities? Specific regulations and safe working practices are laid out in company manual along with procedures for work activities. It is important to identify all hazards and risks before work begins to avoid danger. Risk assessment identifies hazards and their risks. Method statements establish safe working systems such as permits to work etc to control the risks.
While the system must be designed to provide accuracy which matches the need, care must be taken to ensure that excessive effort is not spent in being overly accurate in specific areas when the overall accuracy is inherently less due to the planning environment. • Frequency of use The frequency of use of the system provides direction as to the level of mechanization. If the system will be used only once each month to project the effect of the most recent actual data, it may be sufficient to develop a system which is a combination of mechanized and manual procedures. If it is likely that a variety of alternatives will be evaluated each month, a fully mechanized system will be more desirable. • Turnaround required The need for timely reporting at month end will also provide guidance as to the degree of mechanization and the level of complexity that will be appropriate.
Identify gaps in processes, equipment, resources, or training. Develop Procedure Develop procedures that address gaps in revealed in the audit. Also develop procedures for pre-spill operations, spill response procedures, and post-spill procedures. Operational controls, standard operating procedure, training and certification programs, documentation procedures. Development budgets, timelines and assign roles to oversee implementation.
CONSERVATION, ETHICAL AND HERITAGE ISSUES The excavation of Pompeii and Herculaneum has raised a number of important issues. There is the issue of whether archaeologists should reconstruct a site or leave it as they found it. While the reconstruction of a site may be an act of preservation there is the issue of just how authentic a reconstruction can be. There is also the issue of the types of material used in the reconstruction and the actual methods used. Restoration work requires knowledge of specialised techniques.
(b) Given the owner's stipulation regarding project continuity, and the need to minimize project duration, how can this conflict be resolved? What will be the effect on the project duration? Question 4 (TCO F) The following data were obtained from an Information Systems project to upgrade and expand a Local Area Network: (a) Calculate the Cost and Schedule Variances and Indexes for tasks A, B, C, D, and E. (b) As project manager, write a brief summary of the
Are there any surprising results that appear when you do your comparison? Second, do your excavation results accurately reflect the timing and order of actions that resulted in the final trash assemblage? You should be able to answer this if you have paid close attention to the stratigraphy of the garbage can! How accurate is the stratigraphic record as represented in the garbage can? If it is not very accurate, why do you think this might be?
Studies have been done, from measuring the effects on drinking water to monitoring seismic events related to fracking. While the validity and interpretation of these studies can be brought under scrutiny depending on the viewpoint of the respective group, the mining of the required silica sands and the damages it is ensuing on the environment must be taken into

Since the scenarios provided may not address every situation that could arise, you may extrapolate and be creative regarding the surrounding area. Make sure that you support any decision that you make by explaining its importance in regards to the site and the community. Provide evidence throughout your paper to support your
