This event will take place from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm SGT

The detailed forensic examination of fire scenes, or fire damaged equipment in the laboratory, is critical when considering causation and gathering evidence from such scenes in relation to insurance investigations. In particular, there are also a number of safety issues when examining fire damaged photovoltaic (PV) systems or damaged lithium batteries whether on-site at fire scenes, or during laboratory examinations of fire damaged equipment (i.e. electric shocks, electrocution, overpressure incidents and resultant fires).

Join us as experts from Hawkins explain the basics of photovoltaic installations and lithium batteries, the electrical safety risks of fires scenes involving them, and typical faults/damage which can lead to fires or other failures.
