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 online Electrical Safety E-Learning course will start by covering the many benefits electricity brings to society and its key components voltage, current, and resistance. The Electrical Safety online course will explain the two main types of electricity, cover UK accident and death statistics, and describe a simple way of remembering the electrical hazards. The online Electrical Safety course 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 Electrical Safety E-Learning 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.
Training staff in Electrical Safety is vital to protect your employees and allow them to understand their role and responsibilities regarding Electrical Safety in the workplace.
