This comprehensive online training course on Electrical Safety Awareness will heighten awareness of electrical hazards and provide a set of safe working practise and precautions that address risks for those working around LV systems.

Who should do this course:

This is suitable for those engaged in production maintenance and anyone who is required to work on or near electricity as part of their job role. Roles may include electricians, building contractors, construction workers, maintenance technicians and engineers. This course is designed to comply with the requirements of the Safety Health and Welfare at work Act 2007.

Why should I do this course

Under the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2007, Clause 86, (Precautions when performing live work), it must be justifiable that persons chosen are the right people to be performing Live work. It would be reasonable to conclude that as a minimum they should receive training on the Awareness of Electrical Hazards.
