Lightning is devastating and carry very high current of about 200,000 A! This natural phenomenon cannot be stopped and cannot be eliminated. It causes danger towards life and structure, and causes losses of millions ringgit. Various lightning codes and standards have been practiced worldwide. However, there is no standard lightning code that has been established in Malaysia to enforce lightning protection system. This project has been conducted to determine major causes of lightning damages and to develop a program to determine risk factors of structures towards lightning. The project will also propose the suitable lightning protection and design system which could reduce the risk factors. Several lightning cases will be discussed and analyzed to determine the root causes of the incidents. Australian, New Zealand, British and IEC codes and standards will be used to discuss risk factor analysis. The outcome of this project is to develop lightning protection program that can reduce the lightning risk factor of structures.
