Managing Electrical Safety – Principles of Electricity and its Effects (RoSPA)

Course Duration 40 minutes

Electricity is such a ubiquitous source of energy – and is so familiar – that it is frequently used in unsafe ways. As a result, the Health and Safety Executive receives, on average, reports of between 25-30 fatalities, and about 1000 major injuries per year as a result of accidental contact with electricity at work. Many of those killed or injured by contact with electricity are not doing electrical work when they receive an electric shock. Instead they are engaged in other tasks such as carpentry, labouring, machinery maintenance or building work.
This course does not provide any detailed technical knowledge of electricity or how to carry out electrical work. Instead it seeks to ensure that the learner has a general appreciation of what electricity is, and the ways in which it can cause harm to humans. This will enable the learner to identify and manage the precautions necessary to avoid electric shocks.
Course Content
• Understanding the terms ‘voltage’, ‘current’ and ‘resistance’
• An overview of Ohm’s Law
• The effects of electricity on the human body
• The factors affecting electric shock
• How electricity causes:
• Burns
• Shock
• Arcing
• Fires
• Explosions

Managing Electrical Safety – Identifying High Risk Electrical Hazards (RoSPA)

Course Duration 20 Minutes

Those working with, or in the vicinity of, high risk electrical hazards – or those managing such situations – must be able to identify these hazards and understand the risk they present. This is essential since, without such knowledge, it will prove difficult, if not impossible, to carry out risk assessments or put in place effective risk controls.
This course discusses the most commonly encountered high risk electrical hazards,how they may be identified and the risks they present.
Course Content
• Portable electrical appliances:
• What they are
• Why accidents occur
• The risks and key precautions relating to:
• Overhead power lines
• Underground power cables
• Work on mains electrical supplies
• Work in wet conditions

Managing Electrical Safety-Controlling Electrical Hazards (RoSPA)

Course Duration 40 Minutes

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:
• Key elements of electrical system construction
• Insulation and earthing requirements specified by Regulation
• How electrical equipment is protected against overheating and fires
and
• How people may be protected from electric shock

Course Content
• Protection of Electrical Systems:
• Construction
• Insulation
• Earthing
• Protection of Equipment Against
Overheating And Fires
• Protection of People:
• RCDs
• Secure Isolation
• Reduced Voltage Systems
• Low Voltage Systems
• Battery Operated Tools
• Competence
• Working Dead’ and Justification for
‘Live’ Working

Managing Electrical Safety-Inspection Test and Maintenance(RoSPA)

Course Duration 30 minutes

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’ – which is unique to the Electricity at Work Regulations – 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 the electricity that may flow within the system at any time.
Setting up and maintaining a system to achieve this requirement needs all those involved to understand the role played by inspection, test and maintenance of electrical systems.
This 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

Managing Electrical Safety-Live Overhead or Buried Power Lines(RoSPA)

Course Duration 20 minutes

Contact with power lines and cables can be lethal, whether they are carrying a voltage as high as 400,000 volts or as low as 11000 volts. For this reason, knowledge of how to manage safe working practices with live overhead and buried power lines is absolutely vital.
This course provides a short and useful introduction to this subject and will enable the
learner to understand:
• How to protect against contact with live overhead power lines
• The precautions that are necessary for safe passage under overhead power lines
• The precautions that are necessary for work under overhead power lines
• The key controls that are necessary for preventing contact with underground services

Course Content
• The initial and on-site precautions necessary when working near overhead power
lines
• The precautions necessary for passage under overhead power lines
• The precautions necessary for work under overhead power lines
• The key controls necessary for preventing contact with underground services
