Electrical Safety online training provides practical advice to promote safe working practices around electricity. The course includes basic electrical safety advice, why electrical accidents happen and how to prevent them. The Electrical Safety course covers the types of electrical accidents and injuries that may occur, such as electric shocks and electrical burns. It discusses the common causes of electricity-related accidents, eg faulty appliances,  overloaded sockets and damaged cables. Guidance is provided on what general employees with no specialist electrical training can do to keep electrical equipment maintained in a safe manner. What to do in the event of an accident involving electricity is covered, including a high-voltage accident involving overhead power lines.

This online Electrical Safety training can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation that may be in place, all at no extra cost.
