Risk Evaluation Chart for Lightning Protection

Using the Risk Assessment Guide

To see if your home or business is in danger of a lightning strike, read the risk assessment guide and make notes in the chart below. This will help you to determine the risk values of potential targets: your office building, your house, a nearby school or church, a structure on the drawing board. You'll sharpen your judgment and minimize chances for error or oversight when the time comes to use the guide in an actual assessment situation.

If your structure is determined to be in a high risk situation a risk index of "R" should be assumed for other structures in the area so local risk can be calculated.
