The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 place statutory responsibilities on the Employer, Employee and the Self Employed with regards electrical safety.
This training explores the theory behind the Regulations, the practical implications and explores the key Regulations and how Duty Holders must comply with them. Key areas include the procedures for working on equipment made dead and considerations for when it is, or is not acceptable to work on or near live electrical equipment.
The training also demonstrates a best practice safe isolation procedure.
This training is intended for those who have already undertaken the full Electricity at Work, Electrical Compliance Pack course. It is targeted at those people who work on or near electricity during maintenance tasks or installation work.
