It's easy to forget about flashlights and other emergency products until you need them, so stock up on the safety supplies you need for future emergencies now. Whether you are just thinking about a potential power outage, improving conditions for working outdoors after dark, or a more serious weather or job-related emergency situation, flashlights are vital to have on hand. Be sure to consider additional facility supplies, like floor mats, to have everything you need to keep your operation running safely.
Flashlights are available in a variety of sizes, powers and durability levels, so be sure to have what you need for each situation that may come up. Choose from simple economy flashlights or even small pen lights for the occasional power outage, or opt for more powerful LED flashlights with shatterproof lenses that can withstand drops of up to five feet. Think about small touch lights or clip-on lights in order to continue working or finding your way around when the lights are out or more powerful rechargeable flashlights to always have dependable lighting on hand.
Many flashlights are designed for emergency use or various nonemergency situations where harsh conditions may exist, such as diving in the ocean, camping in the woods or hiking in the mountains. When reviewing flashlights designed for such situations, think about whether their functions may be appropriate for your situations as well. For example, dive lights can feature extremely durable bodies and are water-resistant, making them great solutions for emergency workers in storms. Consider an emergency flashlight with a focused white light, instead of the standard yellow light, for greater visibility, as well as snap-and-go emergency lightsticks to ensure everyone has a safe and reliable light accessible in emergency situations.
