Why should you be concerned about Lightning?
Lightning kills more people than hail, wind, rain and tornadoes combined, making lightning an important safety consideration. This fact is especially true for people who make a living working outdoors. While the odds of getting struck by lightning are less than one in a million, Environmentalists say that lightning kills six to twelve people every year per country and seriously injures another sixty or seventy people.
Knowing what to do when lightning is close is especially important for people who work outdoors (for example, construction workers, road crews, landscapers and farm workers). Employers need to recognize the hazards associated with electrical storms and, where appropriate, have safe procedures and work systems in place, to minimize the risk of injury or harm to employees, and should review these policies seasonally.
A lightning bolt is a million times more powerful than household current, carrying up to 100 million volts of electricity. When someone is struck by lightning, an electrical shock occurs that can cause burns and even stop the person's breathing.
Avoiding the risk of a lightning strike
If you can hear thunder, you are within striking distance. Immediately go to the nearest well-constructed Fibreglass building or Lightning structure. Fibreglass buildings are described and tested to be safe when positioned in a thunderstorm and will therefore not conduct lightning strikes which immediately eliminate injury or death when struck.
