Lightning Safety is Essential for Outdoor Trade Workers

For employees who spend time working diligently outdoors, lightning can be overlooked as a danger. Or for some, lightning may be unobservable from their viewpoint.   

Approx. 50 people are killed by lightning each year in the U.S.

55% of lightning injuries & fatalities occur to outdoor workers.

As recommended by OSHA and NOAA, employers should follow best practices to keep employees safe while working in the elements. Improve outdoor safety with tools designed to heighten awareness of potentially threatening weather.

TALOS®️ Lightning Detection System

The TALOS Lightning Safety Device for Rugged Applications (SFD-1000-G) and the TALOS Remote Lightning Detection System (SFD-1000-R) feature the same technology used in expensive weather stations.

Thunder can be heard from up to 10 miles away, but lightning can strike from 25 MILES AWAY. With the ability to distinguish between a false disturbance and actual lightning, you can trust the alerts are detecting imminent danger in real time.   

Get instant audible and visual alerts when lightning is within 25 miles. When alerts are received, workers should seek safety immediately.

Use lightning safety solutions developed by TALOS to improve situational awareness of approaching & departing storms and keep outdoors workers safe.

Safety isn’t an option, it’s essential!
