STAC Talks: Lightning Policy

STAC received recently a request from a Member company that was in the process of revising its safety policy around tower work and lightning.

The Member asked for any best practices, guidelines or other resources that STAC or STAC’s Members could provide with regards to lightning safety, prompting a call out to STAC’s Workplace Health & Safety Committee for information and other contributions.

The document linked below represents the information received from STAC Members, as well as relevant information gleaned from the website of the U.S. National Lightning Safety Institute (NLSI).

Additionally, members of the STAC Workplace Health & Safety Committee will also commence work on a Tower Work & Lightning Best Practices document in the weeks ahead.
