Access requirements for work such as painting, checking emergency lighting and servicing fire extinguishers, or escorting contractors such as gardening, pest control or cleaning all require an awareness of the environment and potential hazards inside substations. This course looks at the dangers of electricity and hazards that could be encountered, what behaviour and control measures are required when entering these areas, the role of personnel and the type of documentation that could be used to gain access.
Who is the course aimed at?
Staff who may occasionally or regularly enter substations to do work (other than high voltage work) or to accompany an Authorised Person while high voltage working, or testing is being carried out.
This course is suitable for those that need to understand the access requirements for work such as painting, checking emergency lighting and servicing fire extinguishers, or escorting contractors such as gardening, pest control or cleaning.
