Electrical Safety Management

This 1 day course introduces the IET’s Code of Practice for Electrical Safety Management and provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of electrical safety and a systematic set of principles for assessing and managing electrical safety which can be applied to any business, large or small, and across all sectors of industry and the public sector.  

Copies of the IET’s Code of Practice for Electrical Safety Management maybe loaned for the duration of the course.

The aim of the course, in conjunction with the IET Code of Practice, 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.

The course and Code of Practice is applicable to a range of job functions that include the management of the safety of an electrical system and facilities. This includes those responsible for ensuring there is an appropriate electrical safety policy and associated procedures, those responsible for ensuring that the procedures are implemented, those responsible for the management of specific electrical tasks and those responsible for the safe condition of equipment and machinery.

The course will also be of benefit to those individuals that need or wish to improve their knowledge of electrical safety.

The seminar is also applicable to a range of individuals that may not be from a traditional electrically trained background or experienced in managing electrical systems. As such they are not likely to have the specific knowledge associated with electrical safety as part of their core competency.
