Lunch Presentation - Forensic Investigation

28 June 2019

The first technical lunch presentation of the year was held at the Regal Kowloon Hotel on Friday 28 June 2019, with the topic of Forensic Investigation delivered by Dr. Chan Chun. Dr. Chan acquired his PhD on Metallic Materials from the University of Manchester specialising in metallurgy, corrosion and welding failure He is currently a materials expert with Hawkins, a well-established and respected firm specializing in forensic investigation and root cause analysis for the insurance, legal and risk management professions.


Dr. Chan’s technical presentation focused on the work of forensic investigation from testimonies analysis of incidents, to site visits, laboratory tests, and ultimately expert testimony. Having run through a number of interesting case examples, Dr. Chan explained how the application of forensic materials science after an incident, can help the industry raise standards, improve safety and save costs. Interestingly, Dr. Chan explained that in most cases the scientific evidence concludes that the root cause of equipment failure, tends to be human.


The technical lunch presentation was very well attended with some 35 members and guests, and a total of 12 CPD Certificates issued.
