Electrical Safety Management - Inspection Test and Maintenance

The requirement under Regulation 4 of the Electricity at Work Regulations is for “electrical systems to be constructed and maintained so as to prevent danger at all times”. The term ‘danger’ is defined as “the risk of injury from electric shock”, which means that the Regulations therefore require all electrical systems to be set up and maintained in such a way that they do not allow anyone to suffer injury as a result of electricity. The course enables the learner to understand this role and covers user checks, visual inspections, formal visual inspections, combined inspection and testing including PAT and electrical equipment safety in low-risk environments.

eLearning Course Objectives:

  • User checks
  • Formal visual inspections
  • Combined inspection and testing – PAT
  • PAT competence
  • Combined inspection and testing – other areas
  • Control of electrical equipment safety in low-risk environments

Course Duration:
