Lightning Risk Assessments for Mining Operations

Lightning Risk Assessments for Mining Operations


Over the past several years, SLS has worked with several prominent international mining companies to perform lightning risk assessments, per IEC-62305, to quantify lightning-related risk to personnel performing specific tasks at the mines. After realizing the productivity benefits stemming from prior risk assessment results, SLS was recently approached by a customer to execute a mine-wide lightning risk assessment for every facility and operation at the mining site. 

During the execution of this type of work, SLS performs thorough walk-downs and detailed analyses of the lightning-related risk for each structure/facility and the personnel performing tasks within or in the vicinity of the structure/facility. The end result is a list of detailed recommendations to the customer that will maximize work productivity while minimizing the lightning-related risk below the tolerable level of risk per IEC-62305. Frequently, the recommendations may involve changes/additions to existing lightning protection measures and/or modifications to operational procedures to allow certain work be safely performed during thunderstorms. When the recommendations are implemented, the customer minimizes their lightning-related downtime while maintaining or improving personnel safety.
