Lightning Safety Committee Consultation

NLSI can help establish a permanent Lightning Safety Committee (LSC) at your facility. As a consultant, NLSI will do the following:

  • Provide members of the LSC with a comprehensive education in issues relating to lightning for operational safety. This includes training in latest methodologies and technologies for: lightning detection and notification; air terminals, bonding; shielding; transient limiters; and grounding. The LSC and NLSI will develop a facility-specific Lightning Safety Guideline, including evacuation standards and inspection/maintenance standards.
  • Provide lightning safety training for facility inspectors who are responsible to verify the effectiveness of lightning protection systems on bunkers and igloos, communications towers, other storage areas, and administrative buildings. Checklist and guideline documents will be developed for periodic evaluations of the above.
  • Conduct annual lightning safety briefings, as directed, for indoor and outdoor personnel. Lightning hazards and defenses from their effects will be presented in a "short course" of 1.5 hours.
  • Be available to the LSC for periodic assistance on an as-required basis.

For more information, please send email to contact NLSI.
