About Our Electrical Safety Course

Electricity enhances our quality of life and powers the tools and devices we rely on for work and entertainment. However, it can be a hidden danger since it cannot be sensed until someone encounters it.  

Our electrical safety training course will start by covering the many benefits electricity brings to society, as well as its key components voltage, current and resistance. It will explain the two main types of electricity, cover UK accident and death statistics, and describe a simple way of remembering the electrical hazards. It then goes on to provide basic instructions about how you could safely help someone you suspect has received an electric shock.

Towards the end of the course, it includes an overview of the main standards, guidance and legislation that control the use of electricity in the workplace and finish off by looking at simple maintenance plans and portable appliance testing, including who within an organisation would be best to carry out the various checks.
