Managing Electrical Safety - Controlling Electrical Hazards


The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 and the Memorandum of Guidance with which it is published, lay down comprehensive but non-technical requirements for ensuring that the hazards of electricity are properly controlled.

This means that those working with, or in the vicinity of, high risk electrical hazards – or those managing such situations – must, having identified hazards, be able to select and put in place the most appropriate methods of controlling the risks that arise from those hazards.

 This course enables the learner to understand:
