ELECTRICAL SAFETY MANAGEMENT TRAINING COURSE

IET CODE OF PRACTICE

COURSE 360: 1 DAY: Max 8 Candidates  New for 2016

We know that there is a risk of injury when using electricity - but there are also issues such as disruption to business, financial penalties and prosecutions - which can impact on the positive aspects of day to day working. The IET have recognised this and have created a code of practice to give structure to managing electrical systems through safe principles of working.

PARTICIPANTS

This course is intended for Engineering and Maintenance Managers and other employees who have responsibilities for policies / procedures or the allocation of work or the condition of equipment. The course does not require any previous electrical knowledge or experience.

COURSE PRESENTATION

During the presentation, candidates will explore the code of practice, reinforce their knowledge of management tools to assist in the electrical control issues and complete the self assessment evaluation for their business.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

On completion of the course, participants will understand:

Successful completion of the course leads to the award of the Technical Training Solutions underpinning knowledge certificate 360: Electrical Safety Management (IET Code of Practice).

What do candidates on the Electrical Safety Management course actually do?

The Electrical Safety Management course is often 'tuned' to suit the audience and our instructors like to get feedback from the candidates as the course progresses but the following gives a general breakdown of the main parts of the course.

Candidates on the Electrical Safety Management training course analyse the reasons why the electgrical dangers need to be controlled and how this is acheived usiong the IET code of practice. This is one of the pages from the course notes.

 

We begin by looking at the need for management of Electrical Safety. Electricity can be lethal, but there are other risks associated with electricity that modern companies need to limit and manage. The IET have created a code of practice to help all sizes of business to create or improve on their electrical safety systems.

On the course we are able to accommodate both technical and non technical candidates, helping them to identify and drive forward new changes or shifts of focus without the need for an in depth knowledge of electrical engineering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Candidates on the Electrical Safety Management training course study the IET Code of Practice to learn how it should be used. This is one of the pages from the course notes.

 

During the course we talk about how the code of practice looks at such things as the company’s policies, or statements of intent, and how they can mould the view of electrical safety, leadership, design, standards and performance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The course then looks at procedures for getting the job done safely and to the company’s Standard. Risk assessments and method statements all form part of this.

Candidates on the Electrical Safety Management training course look at how various common electrical components can fail and the safety impact that these failures might produce. This is one of the pages from the course notes. Candidates on the Electrical Safety Management training course study why procedures are so important and look at various examples of, for example locking-off procedures. This is one of the pages from the course notes.

Lastly, we talk about training, competency and authorisation.

Once we have discussed what the company has in place, we then work through the IET self assessment. Through a group of 3 pointed questions, we will find areas to improve or focus on.

This is Section 4 of the Self Assessment Questionnaire used at the end of the Electrical Safety Management course to highlight areas that may need attention. This is part of the Self Assessment Questionnaire used at the end of the Electrical Safety Management course to help with site procedures.

Armed with this, any company will be able to understand where it is falling behind and where to concentrate labour, time and money.
