HSE Inspectors’ Guide to Electrical Safety – Buxton, 14 September 2016

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on HSE Inspectors’ Guide to Electrical Safety.

14 September 2016

This workshop will be delivered by current and former Specialist
Electrical Inspectors with extensive industry experience including
giving guidance to duty holders, experience with serious incident
investigations and enforcement action. The workshop is based on
HSE’s practical enforcement experience which arises out of the
businesses it inspects, generally those in the higher risk
industries but also those where although the hazards can be high,
the risks are thought to be well-controlled.  

The workshop will give you a practical understanding of what HSE
inspectors are looking for in the control of general electrical
safety risks, including the risk and appropriate controls. You will
review known high risk electrical safety issues together with the
appropriate controls based on HSE’s investigation experiences and
understand the practical application of HSE’s Enforcement
Management Model.
