We are all no strangers to inclement weather. Weather it be strong wind, thunder showers or winter storms. Sometime in our life at one point or another we have been stuck in a storm.
But do we all know what to do while working in inclement weather?

It is essential, in times of inclement weather, that employers and employees should take prompt and necessary action.
Take shelter as soon as you can.
Avoid any possible areas where objects may fall.
If lightning is in the area, Make sure to avoid such things as trees and lamp poles.
And try and not be at the highest point on the land.
Avoid any water that may be in your area.
Try to not lean against any metal objects.
Don’t use any electronics or plugged in devices.
If heavy rain is falling, avoid being on a downward slope.
Before stepping in a deep puddle, make sure you know what’s below that puddle.

These are just a few examples of what to do and don’t do with inclement weather.
Pay attention to your task, and if you know you cant finish it before the storm will arrive. Make sure to take action and protect yourself and those around you.
