Short Description









All thanks to the Almighty God, by His grace, I can also complete my industrial training report successfully for 20 weeks starting from June 17 until November 1 2013 as it was prescribed by the department of industrial training of polytechnic students. Though many obstacles and limitations all work can be overcome and managed to send the results of the study in a timely manner.

A big appreciation and thanks to MR. GENISAN as manager of GENISAN SDN.BHD CONSTRUCTION AND ENGINEERING WORKS who was taking care of , educate and provide guidance to me to undergo industrial training here . Initiatives and guidance from him throughout the training has managed to help and guide me in producing this report.

Not forgetting the other staff who were willing to provide guidance and counsel to me in carrying out my duties and help solve the problems faced by the industry training sessions in that company.

A special thanks is not forgotten to parents and students of polytechnic students are also practical training in the same department as often inject spirit and give me suggestions on during my industrial training.

So thank you.



INTRODUCTION Industrial training is one of the necessary thing that need to be carried out by students in polytechnic. The Polytechnic has fixed a period for each quantity surveying that have pass the prerequisitory condition. Industrial training time span starts from 17th of December 2012 to 3rd of May 2013. This industrial training were carried out to expose students to a real world working experience on their respective fields. Apart from that, this training aim for students practice what they have learned during their earlier semester in polytechnic and they will also become more skillful in in the field that they are involved in. The ledger on the other hand is an overall record during the period where student conduct their industrial training. This ledger contain industry training information start from the information of the organization, technical report, to record works carried out during their training period and their summary, it also contains some comments and suggestion for future improvement. In a nutshell, this ledger will be presented to the polytechnic to be evaluated and it will be use by the polytechnic to understands more about the work done by the students during the period of the training.



Industrial Training Objective

1.1.1 To expose the students to the real life working experience and expanding the knowledge in their specific field.


Students will further learn about their real life profession. They will also learn what they need to do in order to finish their works. This will prepare the students so that they will easily fit in and fulfill the demands of their profession after they finish their course.

1.1.2 To make use of the theory and learned in the polytechnic.


Students are only exposed to the basic theory and needed in the fields of their own. These theory and were mainly according to the books. With the industrial training in place, students will experience real life situation in the field. This will make the students use their knowledge in order to get their works done.


1.1.3 To produce trustworthy workers with high responsibility and able to cooperate with other staffs.


All tasks given by the supervisor must be completed with a sense of trustworthy and full responsibility. This attitude very important to ensure all business entrusted to students were carried out flawlessly. Also, it train the students to be honest not only to themselves but others as well.

1.2.4. Enhance student’s confidence at end of the training.


When the industrial training students are exposed to a variety of problems and had to face it. With the experience learned through industrial training , the students will be more confidence both in learning and working. High spirit and skills to overcome the problems faced certainly create a strong confidence in the students.

1.2.5. Learn to interact with superior officers.

opportunity will not come without the


Implication of industrial training. This opportunity should be used well by the students to learn more.


Increase the interest and curiosity.


There will be many new things that students will face during the period of the industrial training . These events will enhance the curiosity in the students. Other than that, the real life exposure given to the students will also increase the interest of the students towards their fields of studies.


Report Objectives


The objectives of the report enables the students :


To provide a work document effectively.


To produce students that are responsible for their work by providing enough evidential documents that related to work.


To expose the students on how to provide a proper document.


To build self-confidence in the student while providing the document.


To complete the prerequisite for the student to pass industrialtraining Polytechnic KPTM.



Importance of Industrial Training

1.4.1 Industrial training are important to the students in many aspects. This is because this module was created to give benefit to students, especially students who take up studies in polytechnic KPTM. Among the importance is:


To produce employees that are fully disciplined after they have graduated from the polytechnic KPTM. This can be seen through the students who take part in the industrial training, they are not only bound to the rules set by the polytechnic but also rules fixed by the organization that students take their industrial training at.


To produce employees that are skillful and ready to work when they take their first step to the working world. This is because by involving in certain industrial training at the organization given to them, student will be more skillful in carrying out a job after they were explained on how to do the job by a more experienced coworker.


Student who went through industrial training will be more mature in conducting the works given to them.









understanding about matters related to their field of study, 7

after the practical lessons.



I learned a lot of things within this two weeks. I met new people at working place and also at the office. I started to learn how to plan before do the work. Futher more ,I learned pipe fitting names and started and started to learn how to do pipe work. I learnedhow they installing meter pipe stand at house and also in industrial area. I learned how to0 welding on pipe while water flows in pipe. It was a huge pipe about 1m pipe which pipe bringing water to big area. I learned what is stainless steel pipe and what is the different between stainless steel and mild steel. Mild steel easily can get stain but in stainless steel it wont get stain. I also learned how to drill and how put concrete slap. I had also learned how they doing pipe work in underground base.

weekly reflection 2

In this two weeks I’ve learned how to take over the problems. Especially when problems caused by the house owners example like scolding ,complaining and banishing while doing meter stand work. As a solution we should have a good communication with them so that the work can be done with clean and very well. In case ,if they didn’t calm down we should leave the place silent after the work all done. I faced that problems and I learned the solution of the problem. Moreover, I’ve learned how they making connection from main pipe which is laying under the road to meter pipe stand. Pipe fittings like elbow, tee, short piece, stopcock were used in pipe work. I’ve managed to learn how they setting up the meter pipe stand and putting the concrete at the base of the meter pipe stand so that meter pipe can stand straight. I’ve also learned about stainless steel. Superviser told me it wont get rust by water even for a long time. Then only I noticed why they using stainless steel pipe for pipe work.


weekly reflection 3

In this two weeks I’ve been changed to do work at meter department. I’ve learned so much by doing paper work for meter that spoiled and aged to claim money from syabas. Firstly I’ve learned how to do paperwork for spoiled and aged meter. Sometimes the hand writing of the subcontractor had confused me and made me difficult todo paperwork. Anyway, finally I managed to find the solution to cord this problem.

weekly reflection 4

This two weeks I did paperwork but only a few. I went to side, quarry, syabas store and to south port. When I was in the quarry I saw how the crosher runs are being made. Now I know how they transport crusher run and sand from quarry to store or site. I’ve also went to syabas store. There I saw how neat they arranged the boxes and things. The syabas workers always well aware about self safety. I’ve also helped supervisor to divide and give the works to workers. From this I’ve learned how to monitor and lead the workers without making any unsatisfy feelings about eash other. I want to south port to transport materials that needed to do pipework at pulau ketam.


weekly reflection 5

This two week mostly I did work orders of ½” meter pipe. I also went to syabas office store. This is the first time im going to those places. I learned so many things through this work. I learned how the paperwork for meter is done. I also learned how to submit work orders and old meter boxes to syabas office and store. I also learned how to do box listing before submitting the old meter to syabas store, but its quite a bit tough job that ever done before. I faced a lot of problems when im doing meter box listing. Furthermore, I’ve also had faced few problems while im writing work orders. Example like sometimes subcontracters will write wrong info about meter that they changed. But to solve this problem I have to go to store to checked whether the info that they gave is correct or not. While im doing box listing I faced problems like serial number or last meter reading different with listing. So that I’have to every meter to make sure every serial number and meter last reading are same. If syabas found that mistakes , they will charge and take action on the compony. Weekly reflection 6

This two week I have learned a lot of things. I learned the types of meter pipe. There is a five type of ½ meter pipe that are DPM, NB, LXH, PSM and REMAC. Types of pipe should be write in work order papers. I learned how to different the ½ water meter type.

Weekly reflection 7

This two weeks I have learned a lot of things. I distributed the work order among the three subcontractors with a passion and giving them the boxes which is filled with water meters. Writing the work orders has become the main task for this work. Eventually I enjoyed and learned so much when I write the work order papers.


Weekly reflection 8

This two weeks thought me a lot of lesson. I faced so many problems. If I made a mistake it causes big problem like old serial meter number is same with new serial meter number. Syabas staffs will call me directly if this kind of mistake happens.

Weekly reflection 9

This two weeks I went to site to change bulk meter. Bulk meter is meter is used commonly in industrial and big building areas to measure the amount of water they consumed.

Weekly reflection 10

This two weeks I learned a lot by writing the water meter work orders. If the sub-contractors made mistake I have to go personally to check meter in site which they did .

If the pipe is rotated by direct contact drive from the machine it shall be supported over at least 90 degrees of its circumference and driven by nonmetallic surfaced belts of sufficient width to avoid coating damage. The speed of rotation of the pipe during the lining compaction stage shall be such as to provide a radial acceleration of at least 250m/s2. The rotational drive shall be capable of close control and provide smooth acceleration and deceleration when working up to and down from the compaction spinning stage. Immediately before lining commences, the pipe bore shall be cleaned of all loose scale, rust, oil, grease or any other foreign matter likely to contaminate or harm the concrete. Areas where an approved primer coat has bonded to the pipe such that wire brushing does not cause areas to flake off will be acceptable as a base for applying the lining. The entire quantity of concrete required for the lining shall be continue until the specified thickness is evenly distributed over the inside of the pipe, all surplus water has been removed and the greatest possible density of concrete has been obtained. Tolerance on the thickness of lining shall be as follows :• •

+3mm to -2mm for 25mm and above +2mm to -1mm for 19mm and above

Temporary or semi-permanent end restraints shall be fixed to the pipe ends on completion of lining and before removal of the pipe from the lining machine. The pipe shall not be rotated about its longitudinal axis after the fixing of the storage yard and subsequently to the site. Fittings shall be concrete lined at the factory in such a manner that the lining shall be of the specified thickness and comparable in density and smoothness to the spun lining in straight pipes and generally applied in accordance with Clause 33.2 of BS 534. During the lining process, all rebound materials, dribbles, etc. shall be remove so that the lining is applied in a homogeneous mass to a clean surface.

Inspection of the lining shall be carried out any time prior to and after installation of the pipes. Any pipe with lining that is broken, defective or otherwise not in accordance with the Specification may be rejected. The Standard of the remedial lining shall satisfy the requirements of this Specification. Surface crazing of the lining will be acceptable unless cracks are severe enough that they can be penetrated to a depth of 2mm by a 250 microns feeler gauge at 10 points or more over a length of 300mm when measured with the lining in a saturated condition. These cracks shall be cut back to full depth and sealed with approved epoxy resin filler.

Linings applied to pipes shall be cured in such a manner as will enable concrete to obtain and subsequently retain optimum strength, density and durability. Linings shall be kept moist by continuous least 3 days. They shall then be protected spraying with water or other means approved 7 days. Pipes shall not be removed from the elapsed from the date of lining. 6.1
