Why You Should Attend

There is plenty of controversy and misinformation surrounding some of the non-conventional Lightning Protection concepts which can be hard to cut through and makes an informed choice more difficult, especially, if compliance is important to you. 

In this no-holds-barred webinar, we lift the lid off the non-conventional lightning attracting solutions. We also unpick the myths behind the ‘Rolling Sphere’ and provide you with an objective perspective on Lightning Protection for the cost-conscious and for those that have to consider the more hazardous working environments – DSEAR / COMAH sites.
