A PARTNERSHIP APPROACH TO YOUR Lightning Protection Survey

information collection

Approach 1

With your support, our lightning protection experts collect information about your company’s operations to better understand your working conditions and common tasks. We will review your existing lightning protection program and when necessary, make notes and recommendations on existing lightning protection program improvements. Following that consultation and collection of information, we produce a first draft of the updated lightning protection program.

findings discussion

Approach 2

Our Lightning Protection Surveyor will communicate with your lightning protection and maintenance teams to discuss findings and details of the program review and first draft of the written program. Based on that additional consultation, revisions can be easily made to the first draft and then presented for additional review.

Approach 3

Our Lightning Protection Surveyor will then consult with lightning protection and maintenance personnel to discuss how to implement the changes to the lightning protection program and address next steps.

Once your new lightning protection program has been implemented, our Lightning Protection Surveyor can be available for continuing review and consultation.

If required, our Lightning Protection Survey will recommend power system and equipment modifications, resulting in an electrically safer working environment and reduced potential damage to the electrical equipment and improve the health and safety of workers. We will also make recommendations, if required, to the improvement of lightning protection equipment and methods.
