    This paper first presents a general discussion of the IEC standards relating to lightning and surge protection. These comprise the IEC standard series IEC62305 and IEC61643 which have been adopted in Malaysia. The paper will present a summary of the lightning risk standard IEC62305-2, examine how it can be used and present a spreadsheet analysis that simplifies the procedure. From this analysis the paper will show how surge protection can be dimensioned and applied. A method of sizing SPDs will be presented.

    Landslides pose a ubiquitous hazard in mountainous and hilly terrain and often lead to human casualties in urban settlements and along transportation corridors. From a global perspective, Asia has remained a dominant region in terms of occurrence of fatal landslides. For example, the 1996 Keningau landslide in Sabah recorded the highest level of fatality (>300 deaths) for a single landslide in Malaysia whereby a debris flow, triggered by torrential rain, inundated a number of villages. In the aftermath of several disastrous landslides with multiple fatalities in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Government took the policy decision in 1977 to establish the Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO).

    Building up from the success of ASEAN Electrotechnical Symposium & Exhibition 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, the AEI-Mid Term Symposium 2019 aims to further propagate and disseminate the latest updates on the Electrical Installation Standard & Regulations in Buildings amongst ASEAN Countries. Acknowledging that standards is an important driver in improving the value chain, it is a great honour for IEM together with Standards Malaysia to be able to provide an effective platform to drive cross-border flows and mobility of engineering technology and services thus accentuating the linkages in ASEAN countries, positioning ASEAN on the Global Value Chain map.

    The role of Human Factors in the causation of crashes and other untoward Incidents has often been politicized. The speaker will critically appraise the role of Human Factors in existing models of “Safety” with examples from transportation crashes, occupational, home and recreational injuries. A multidimensional approach to the study of Safety and Injury Prevention is recommended. He has advocated for the setting up of a National Transportation Safety Board to proactively improve transportation safety standards through independent no-fault investigation process (of near misses / crashes and sharing of such information), research and training and suggests that other areas of Safety be approached in a similar manner.
