Course description

Electrical Safety


There are many ways you can have an electrical accident. It can be through electrocution or shock or even burns. Electrical accidents and fatalities are quite common with over 200 fatalities recorded each year by the National Institute for Occupation Safety and Health. Common groups of people vulnerable to electrical accidents are labourers and craftsmen. If you work with electricity or employee individuals who need to use electricity for their line of work, it is imperative you learn more about ensuring the health of yourself, your employees and the general public. The Electrical Safety course is comprehensive and will provide a wealth of information on electricity and electrical hazards. While there are immense benefits that electricity provides to our modern society, there are equal amounts of risks that come with it. Taking this course will teach you the importance of applying safety and control measures in an environment where electricity is the primary substance.

There are key modules fully explored in this course providing you how to assist if you think someone is having an electric shock. You will also learn why it is important to implement safety practices when dabbing with electricity. The Electrical Safety course features practical advice and guidance on the dangers associated with electricity and the course of action you can take to reduce or eliminate the risks related to hazardous activities. This is an IIRSM approved course which demonstrates to potential employers that you are continually developing yourself, and will make you a desirable candidate in the electrical industry.
