About Electrical Safety Training

This is an awareness level course and is intended for any individuals who work with electrical equipment. The purpose of this course is to provide a thorough understanding of electricity, equipment and practical measures to stay safe.

Why Is Electrical Safety Training Important?

Electrical safety can pose severe hazards to human health. Nearly 1,000 accidents occur every year in the UK due to electric shocks, 30 of which are fatal, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Workers who deal directly with electricity, overhead power cables, installation equipment, and circuit assemblies are at most risk.  But those who deal indirectly with electricity, such as office-based employees and construction workers, can be exposed to electricity dangers if control measures are absent.

Under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 business owners have a legal duty to ensure the health and welfare of all their employees at work. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 apply to the use of electricity in workplaces, including electrical supplies and electrical equipment. This legislation places responsibilities on employers, employees and contractors to ensure electrical safety testing and electrical equipment is correctly installed, used and maintained.
