Here is some safety information related to emergency lightning.

Risk Assessment:

A risk assessment must be conducted prior to any work taking place in an area where there is a risk of lightning strikes. The risk assessment should consider the following factors:

  • The likelihood of a lightning strike occurring
  • The consequences of a lightning strike
  • The duration of the work being carried out
  • The number of people working in the area
  • The location of safe shelters and evacuation routes

Control Measures:

The following control measures must be implemented to minimise the risk of injury or damage from a lightning strike:

  1. Monitor the weather:

Before commencing work in an area where there is a risk of lightning strikes, the weather forecast must be checked. Work must be suspended if there is a risk of lightning and employees, contractors, and visitors must be directed to a safe shelter.

  1. Safe shelter:

All employees, contractors, and visitors must be directed to a safe shelter in the event of a lightning storm. A safe shelter should be a building that has been constructed with lightning protection or a fully enclosed metal vehicle. Employees, contractors, and visitors must remain in the shelter for at least 30 minutes after the last thunderclap.

  1. Evacuation routes:

Clear evacuation routes must be identified and communicated to all employees, contractors, and visitors. These routes must lead to the designated safe shelter and must be kept clear at all times.

  1. Lightning protection:

If a safe shelter is not available, a portable lightning protection system must be used. All employees, contractors, and visitors must be instructed on how to use the system.

  1. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

All employees, contractors, and visitors must wear appropriate PPE, including rubber-soled shoes, to reduce the risk of electric shock in the event of a lightning strike.

  1. Training and supervision:

All employees, contractors, and visitors must be trained on the risks associated with lightning strikes and the control measures to be implemented. Supervisors must ensure that all employees, contractors, and visitors are following the SWMS and are aware of the evacuation routes and safe shelter locations.

Emergency Procedures:

In the event of a lightning strike, the following emergency procedures must be followed:

  • If you are outside, seek shelter immediately.
  • If you are inside, stay away from windows and doors.
  • Do not touch any electrical equipment or plumbing.
  • If someone is struck by lightning, seek medical attention immediately.
  • After the storm has passed, conduct a safety inspection of the work area before resuming work.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey there everyone, it’s great to be here today talking about a topic that is incredibly important for the safety and well-being of everyone – emergency lightning. This is something that is often overlooked but can have serious consequences if not handled properly. So, today we’re going to be discussing some of the dangers associated with emergency lightning and some safety recommendations that can help prevent accidents.

Let’s start by talking about the dangers of emergency lightning. Emergency lightning is designed to provide lighting during power outages or other emergencies. However, if it’s not installed or maintained correctly, it can become a serious hazard. Faulty wiring, improper installation, and inadequate testing can all contribute to emergency lightning malfunctions. This can lead to injuries, property damage, and even loss of life.

One of the biggest dangers of emergency lightning is electrical shock. If the wiring is damaged or not properly grounded, it can create a dangerous electrical current that can cause serious injury or even death. Additionally, if emergency lightning is not installed correctly, it can fall or become dislodged during an emergency, which can also cause injury.

Another danger of emergency lightning is fire. If the wiring is not installed or maintained correctly, it can overheat and cause a fire. This is especially true if emergency lightning is used frequently or for long periods of time.

Now that we’ve talked about the dangers of emergency lightning, let’s discuss some safety recommendations that can help prevent accidents. First and foremost, it’s important to ensure that emergency lightning is installed by a qualified electrician. This will ensure that the wiring is properly installed and grounded, which will minimise the risk of electrical shock.

In addition to proper installation, it’s also important to regularly test emergency lightning to ensure that it’s functioning correctly. This should be done at least once a year, and any problems should be addressed immediately. It’s also a good idea to have backup batteries or generators in place in case of a power outage.

Another important safety recommendation is to ensure that emergency lightning is properly labelled and easily accessible. This will ensure that it can be quickly located and used during an emergency. It’s also a good idea to have a plan in place for how to use emergency lightning, including how to turn it on and off and how to test it.

Finally, it’s important to educate yourself and others about the proper use of emergency lightning. This includes knowing when it’s appropriate to use emergency lightning, as well as how to safely use it. If you’re unsure about how to use emergency lightning, it’s always a good idea to consult with a qualified electrician or other safety professional.

In conclusion, emergency lightning is something that is often overlooked but can have serious consequences if not handled properly. By understanding the dangers associated with emergency lightning and following some simple safety recommendations, we can help prevent accidents and ensure that emergency lightning is always there when we need it. So, stay safe out there and make sure that your emergency lightning is installed and maintained correctly!
