Course description

Electrical Safety Management

Electrical safety in organisations is often the responsibility of non-electrically qualified staff, such as facilities managers, risk managers or health & safety officers who have not had systematic training in how to prevent electrical hazards in the workplace. This situation results in a number of deaths in the workplace being caused by electrical incidents.

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of electrical safety and a systematic set of principles for assessing and managing electrical safety in any business and across all sectors of industry and the public sector: the subject is universally applicable, across industries and countries. The course is applicable to the buildings, facilities, equipment and environments associated with a wide range of organisations, irrespective of size, which includes the industrial, commercial and the public sectors.

The course provides practical guidance to enable individuals and their organisations to have a level of knowledge and understanding to manage the risks associated with an electrical system. It will focus on providing a specific procedure for managing electrical safety.
