Lightning protection inspection

Lightning protection inspection

What does lightning protection mean?

Protection of man-made facilities against lightning strikes, prevention of their accidental, fire-causing effects. The lightning protection check must be checked in accordance with the standards and regulations in force at the time of installation. The inspection shall also be carried out in the event of reconstruction, extension, damage (eg caused by lightning) or any repairs which may affect the lightning protection effect of buildings and lightning rods. 

The lightning protection review is required by the (OTSZ) National Fire Protection Regulations and the (TvMI) Fire Protection Technical Directive.

Lightning Review - To whom and at what intervals?

It is the responsibility of the owners or operators of the facility (be it industrial, commercial, public education, etc.) or its agents to carry out the due periodic inspections. It is important that the obligation to carry out a lightning protection inspection is limited not only to the inspection itself and the preparation of its report, but also to the immediate correction of any errors and deficiencies found.
