Did You Know that 8.6% of Employees Die Due to Electrocution?
Electrocution is one of the “Fatal Four” causes of workplace deaths according to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The other three causes are falls and being struck by or caught between objects. Electrical risks include exposed wiring, faulty grounding, contact with power lines or energized conductors, faulty electrical panels and more.
Did You Know that Lightning Strike Damages Exceed $5 Billion Per Year?
According to the National Lightning Safety Institute (NLSI) lightning strike losses are from $5 to $6 billion per year. A typical lightning strike can cause deaths, injuries and millions of dollars in damages to equipment, machinery and critical infrastructure. Even worse, if the theory of global warming is correct we may see double or even triple the number of lightning strikes by mid-century according to the University of Florida Lightning Research Center.
About E&S Grounding Solutions
We are the experts in electrical grounding design and we work closely with our client’s project engineers, providing them the safest and most cost-effective electrical grounding and earthing solutions available.
We Do Not Sell Any Products – We are Independent Consultants
Unlike other companies, we only conduct independent 3rd party assessments – we do not sell products. We simply provide the technical expertise needed to help electrical engineers design proper lightning protection and surge protection systems that, when connected to a properly designed grounding system, will protect humans and equipment from electrical hazards.

Ground / Earthing rods (electrodes) are typically comprised of steel with a thin coating of copper or zinc (galvanized) to protect the steel from excessive corrosion. Copper-bonded ground rods are coated with copper with a thickness that ranges between 1.5 to 10 mils...
Touri Asks, “Can you please tell me which IEC article bans the use of carbonaceous backfills for earth electrodes?” _______________________________________________ Hi Touri, E&S Grounding are not fans of using...
Hi Jim, The short answer is: If your surge protection device is more than 20 feet from the electrical service point of grounding, you are required to have a supplemental grounding electrode (for example, a grounding rod) at that surge protection device location....
