Electrical Safety Training
Electricity is the main cause of over 15,000 fires per year, so it is apparent that there is an element of danger associated with its use. For this reason, it is essential that those who use electrical appliances at work understand how to safely use and maintain these devices.
Our online training course helps the user work towards legal compliance with current legislation, and also how to react in an emergency and deal with electrical injuries and burns.
In this course you will learn:
- The risks of working with electricity, and how to do so safely.
- What to do in the event of an accident, including how to respond to electrical burns and injuries.
- The legal regulations of working with electricity.
This course consists of three sections:
Section 1: working safely with electricity
The first section in the course breaks down the risks and safety procedures when working with electricity or using electrical appliances. It covers the causes of common electrical accidents and how to minimise risks, as well as how to stay safe during maintenance checks and repairs.
Section 2: injuries and emergency procedures
Section 2 looks in more detail at the types of injury that can be caused by electricity, such as shocks and burns, and how they should be treated. It also explains what to do in the event of a high-voltage accident from overhead power lines.
Section 3: electricity and the law
Section 3 examines the Electricity at Work Regulations, RIDDOR, and who is responsible for employee health and safety.
