Electrical Safety Training
Electricity is the lifeblood of modern society, it enhances our quality of life and we are becoming increasingly reliant on it to power tools and devices we use for work and entertainment. However, although electricity has many benefits it can also be a hidden killer as it can’t be seen, felt, smelled or heard until someone comes into contact with it.
This 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.

The best training is always having a tutor in front of you with their presentation, so that’s how our online courses are made! The tutor is “green-screened” with the presentation, photos and videos put in afterwards. The courses are then build into modules with question banks and minimum scores applied. The certifying body then views it and agrees to put their name to it and then you have the chance to take part in the training. Assuming you are successful, your certificate is available for download at the end.
