Online Electrical Safety Management

Electrical Safety Management

Course Overview

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.

The course follows the structure of the IET’s Code of Practice for Electrical Safety Management.

The aim of the Code of Practice for Electrical Safety Management is to provide good practice guidance to enable individuals and their organisations to have a level of knowledge and understanding to manage the risks associated with an electrical system. There are many technical publications that provide guidance on certain aspects of electrical safety but not in a way that provides a process for managing electrical safety.
