Hurricane and Summer Storm Preparedness: Part 1

Posted by on 6/1/2016 to General

Hurricane season officially takes effect June 1st and lasts until November 30th.

Being located on the Atlantic coast, our location in Southeast Virginia is at risk during hurricane season of storm surges, flooding, and extreme winds from big storms. Predictions for the 2016 hurricane season are that it will be higher likelihood of heavy storms than average.

Hurricanes and strong summer storms can cause downed power lines, fallen branches or entire trees, damage to buildings from rain and wind, power outages and water damage to electrical equipment.

From your safety experts at OBBCO Safety and Supply, we want to share some tips to keep your staff and equipment safe in the event of a hurricane or severe storm:

1) Develop a safety program that includes emergency procedures (especially those for equipment or areas of your building susceptible to storm damage).

2) Ensure electrical equipment is properly maintained and running efficiently – before a storm.

3) Create an electrical emergency action plan (EEAP) that determines priorities in the event of an emergency. Includes service contract information and identify critical spare parts that may be needed.

4) Stay up to date on the most current natural disaster recovery codes and standards. Refer to the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) guidelines for evaluating equipment following a storm.

5) Know the effects of water damage or power outages to your electrical equipment.

There is no way to prevent a natural disaster like a flood, power outage or hurricane. But following the above steps can help you minimize the potential damage to your business and reduce the risk of an employee injury in the event of a storm.
