Don't Get Caught in the Storm

Tech Tips - Jan 18

If you are outdoors and hear thunder, you are in danger of lightning. Protect yourself and your team by seeking shelter and waiting for the storm to pass.

With summer work in full swing, follow these tips from the U.S. Department of Labor.

  • Wait 30 minutes from the last sound of thunder before returning to work
  • Start your day by reviewing NOAA weather reports to prepare for potential hazards
  • Know your shelter locations – enclosed buildings with electrical wiring and plumbing
  • Train your team on lightning safety and encourage them to adhere to safety guidelines
