    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.

    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).

    Civil and structural project consultants are normally entrusted by the Developers to propose and submit sewage treatment plant (STP) design and drawings to IWK, and sometimes to SPAN if it involves appeal case. However, STP design is a specialized subject which requires competency and knowledge in biological and mechanical process besides civil engineering knowhows. Understanding the engineering technology, statutory guidelines and procedures are, however, important in ensuring good design, speedy approval and steady performance of the plant. Therefore, many civil and structural consulting engineers normally refer to specialist STP contractor to propose STP system in the planning stage and carry out design and build during in the building stage.

    Method & Standard Guide for measuring Lighting Flicker Regular exposure to flickering lights has a negative impact on the human body. Recent studies show that flickering lights impact productivity, focus, comfort, and even our emotional well-being. Lighting Flicker is invisible when it consists of pulses or waves of light that repeat one after the other so rapidly that they appear to fuse together into steady light.

    Currently, the population of Malaysia is 34 million. Have you ever thought about the number of firefighters in Malaysia? The answer is 14,000, which means that on average, 1 firefighter would have to save 2000 people’s lives! Even if our firefighters sacrifice their lives to save ours, it is still not enough as our population severely outnumbers the firefighters. So how do we reduce the casualties and the loss of human lives in a fire incident more effectively? The answer is to increase fire prevention awareness to everyone and to spread life-saving survival skills during a fire. “Fire Destruction Is One Man’s Job, Fire Prevention Is Everybody’s Job.”

    Although for many of us, getting behind the wheel is an everyday occurrence, unintentional accidents, such as road traffic crashes, are one of the leading causes of deaths globally as well as in Malaysia. Nearly 1.3 million people were killed every year due to the road crash, with 20–50 million sustaining non-fatal injuries. In fact, 90% of the fatalities occurred in low and medium income countries which only have 54% of the world’s registered vehicles. It has cost most countries 3% of their GDP. Without any sustained action, road traffic crashes are predicted to become the 7th leading cause of death by 2030. With such a grave risk, motorists should take every precaution possible to help prevent an accident.

    The emerging technologies have changed the engineering environment at a fast pace. The emerging technologies, such as cloud computing, internet of things, wireless sensor network, big data, and artificial intelligence are starting to be implemented into manufacturing industries and it is believed to be approaching. The advances in science and technology continuously support the development of industrialization all over the world. The Malaysian manufacturing industry is needed to transform towards the fourth industrial revolution in order to strengthen their competitiveness internationally. Malaysia government has initiated a national level technical working group that lead by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry to develop a National Industry 4.0 policy in 2017.

    Malaysians are very privileged to have some of the best healthcare systems and technologies available. Regardless, coronary heart disease ranks number one in terms of diseases and health-related problems in Malaysia. A country with people from different backgrounds and culture, it also comes with many different types of food and cuisine and lifestyles. Therefore, it is not surprising that most of the major causes of the killer diseases in Malaysia are widely due to the diet, food intake and bad lifestyles. IEM Penang Branch recognizes it is necessary that our members are aware of these diseases, especially common heart diseases which is the No. 1 killer in Malaysia, and be provided with the up-to-date knowledge in healthcare, courses of the disease, symptoms and learn precaution and prevention measures. With the cooperation from Gleneagles Medical Centre (GMC), Penang, IEM Penang Branch invites renown medical specialists from GMC to provide healthcare talks to benefit our members, so that they are aware of these killer diseases and learn how to maintain a healthy body. Afterall, an engineer will not be able to execute even the simplest of any engineering design and construction without a healthy body.

    Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Software is commonly used and it is a necessity in today’s Consultants offices often linking the common drawings to all related consultants in the same project. From the late 80’s till today, many Consultants continue to relate CAD software to drafting functions more than what it can specifically function for each specialized field of applications for better, faster, accurate, easier generation and management of the project drawings.

    Numerical modeling has existed since decades ago; in the 60s – 70s finite element method was deployed for structural analysis in the aerospace industry. The advancement in computing hardware and the rapid adoption of 3D Computer Aided Design (3D CAD) in the late 90s, early 2000s, combined with the ever-demanding industrial need of producing things at a faster rate and at a lower cost; proved to be a major catalyst in the development of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE).

    The recent spat of hillside collapses had given a skew perception of engineers’ professionalism and integrity. However, many of the mishaps might not due to the fault of the engineers. They might be due to circumstances outside the engineers’ control. Nevertheless, the public would still construe that the mishaps were due to the fault of engineers. Hence, the talk will focus on some of the cases which might be misconstrued by the public. They are actual cases encountered by the speaker over his 30 years of working life. It is to make awareness for practising engineers, in particular, the young ones in executing their jobs.
