According to Ireland’s Health and Safety Authority “In Ireland, there have been 40 electrocutions or deaths from the explosive/burning effects of electricity from 2001 to the end of 2020. Of those, 25 deaths have been associated with a work activity”.


It doesn’t seem very many, but one fatality a year represents a loved-one lost, doing their job.

Electrical safety in organisations is often the responsibility of non-electrically qualified staff, from facilities managers up to company directors. Is that you? If so, are you confident you know how to manage your organisation’s electrical risk?

 This course has helped hundreds of delegates to audit their policies and procedures through the simple approach of the Code of Practice:  

 "All presenters were engaging. Giving useful and practical examples of real-world situations makes it so much easier to understand and use the training effectively." 

  "The way the information was delivered made the self-assessment tool more approachable." 

 "The legal update was very useful and a timely reminder to understand responsibility/accountability."
