Course Content

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.
