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.
WHAT DOES THIS COURSE COVER?
This course will start by covering the many benefits electricity brings to society, as well as its key components – voltage, current and resistance. It will explain the two main types of electricity, cover UK accident and death statistics and describe a simple way of remembering the electrical hazards. It 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 course, there is an overview of the main standards, guidance and legislation that control the use of electricity in the workplace and finishes by looking at simple maintenance plans and portable appliance testing, including who within an organisation would be best to carry out the various checks.
