1. Keep an eye out for storm watches or warnings.
Make sure to check the weather before beginning work outside. Keeping an eye on your local
weather and watch for changing weather signs can help prevent an emergency storm situation.
2. When you hear thunder, go inside.
If you hear thunder while working outside, even a distant rumble, get to a safe place as quickly as
you can. Safe places can include a near by building or even a vehicle. Thunderstorms always
include lightning, any thunder you hear is caused by lightning.
3. Have an emergency plan.
Creating a jobsite emergency plan can prevent confusion if a weather emergency were to occur.
Setting specific meeting locations, notification systems, and safety protocols can provide a safer
situation for all involved on the jobsite.
4. Be aware of potential driving hazards after a storm.
Roadways may be compromised after a severe storm. Report any down
power lines to local authorities, and never drive through a flooded roadway.
5. Assess for damages.
After the severe weather threat has ended, check
your surroundings for damages, tripping hazards,
and report any damaged areas to the jobsite
