What is a lightning protection risk assessment?
A lightning protection risk assessment is a study of a structure or facility to determine the likelihood of a lightning strike occurring. Along with the potential consequences if a strike were to occur. The purpose of the risk assessment is to identify the necessary measures that need to be taken to protect the structure or facility from lightning damage. This can include installing lightning rods or other grounding systems. As well as implementing protective measures for electronic systems and other sensitive equipment. The risk assessment process helps ensure that a structure or facility is adequately protected from lightning strikes, which can cause significant damage and disruption.
Why do you need a lightning protection risk assessment?
Maybe your building hasn’t yet been struck by lightning and you’re a little concerned whether it will be, or not. Or, maybe you have a project with a duty of care. And one of the compliance requirements is to formally assess the risk to life due to lightning. Either way, you can make more informed decisions going forward if you can get a number that gives you a risk-rating, right?
When making decisions about protection, i.e. do I need it, yes or no?… Formal assessments like these are so much better than a finger in the air. Thankfully, the standard’s people have put together a pretty comprehensive list of variables which aims to capture almost all of the possible scenarios, including yours.
Why not do it yourself?
There’s nothing stopping you from having a go. But believe me, getting the result to match the reality is no simple matter. IEC 62305:2012 standard is broken down into 4 parts over 400 pages. Part 2 is a technical document with just under 200 pages that will not only have your head spinning but for the compliance-driven needs to be completed by a qualified specialist.
Err-hem – perhaps an independent consultant that has no axe to grind? Hmmm… who could that be???
Warning – sales bit. Listen, as an independent specialist with no vested interest in installing a lightning protection system. It makes sense that you should be able to trust a recommendation does NOT suggest installing measures unless the risk assessment calls for it. And that the risk assessment truly matches your reality.
