Lightning Safety is Essential for Outdoor Trade Workers

Outdoor Workers - TALOS Lightning Protection

When Working Outdoors, Workers are Focused on the Job, Not on Incoming Storms

Lightning strikes can severely injure or kill an employee working outdoors. Outdoor workers often overlook the danger of an incoming storm due to being focused on the job at hand or simply not knowing that lightning is in the area.

  • 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 Awareness System - OEM Ready to Install Solution

The TALOS Remote Lightning Detection System (SFD-1000-R) features the same technology used in expensive weather stations and provides bright LEDs and loud audible alerts when lightning is within 25 miles. When alerts are received, workers should seek safety immediately.

FACT: 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.   

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

Why Use TALOS When Cellular Devices Already Provide Weather Alerts?

Weather app alerts may be delayed due to:

  • The weather tower/doppler location, not your ACTUAL location
  • Weather apps alert at specific intervals, not in real time

Outdoor workers don't always have their phone at hand. TALOS is a stand alone device, no subscription fees or cell coverage required.
