Introduction

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 taking 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 electrical safety risks, including the effectiveness of appropriate controls. You will review known high-risk electrical safety issues together with the controls based on HSE's investigation experiences and understand the practical application of enforcement.

The course will cover:

  • Relevant legislation, guidance and industry best practice; principles of enforcement, recent case law examples.
  • High-risk and priority issues an HSE inspector will focus on in general electrical safety.
  • Managing electrical distribution networks and controlling risks to third parties; legislation, guidance.
  • How to reflect on and plan for any necessary improvements in the control of risks associated with electricity before an HSE inspector calls.
  • Practical demonstration of hazards associated with electrical control systems.
  • Electrical safety issues that are likely to trigger enforcement action.
  • What happens when things go wrong? (An insight into the investigation progress and things you can do to assist with the process)
  • To identify possible systems (policies, procedures and people issues) that will help you better manage electrical safety.

Health and Safety Professionals responsible for managing or advising on the interface between businesses and the HSE.  Business owners, senior managers and technical specialists responsible for managing and controlling general electrical safety risks.
