Health and safety legislation in Ireland and the UK imposes numerous duties on employers and the self-employed (contractors) in relation to Arc Flash and electrical safety in general. Electrical safety training is the provision of industry standard best practices to experienced and apprentice electrical workers and operatives. Training can be required for any operative who comes into connect with an electrical network. Many facilities and contractor firms are now undertaking advanced electrical training to ensure the safety of their workers and working environment.
Premium Power employs a number of engineers who are experts in electrical safety, legal duties, risk assessments and arc flash mitigation. Each trainer has over a decade of industrial experience delivering electrical safety programmes for large facilities and world renowned corporations. Our trainers are regularly requested to speak at international conferences on electrical safety and have advised various state bodies and expert groups on electrical safety legislation. Our trainers offer specialist training services for already experienced electrical personnel. All of our trainers have at least:
Electrical safety training helps prevent potential accidents and fatalities. It educates workers to spot and mitigate against potential electrical faults and accidents. Trained electrical workers will be up to date with the most modern approaches to electrical safety and will be able to contribute to a safer working environment and smoother, more reliable working practices. Many workers who come into contact with electrical networks may not be aware of the dangers posed by electrical arcs and arc flash hazards or how to handle them. Electrical safety training helps dispel some of the myths around the lesser understood electrical dangers and ensures workers can implement the correct safety practices in their own particular environment.
We have developed our courses in response to the changing corporate demands of large facilities and the training needs of their workers. Our arc flash hazard course is usually delivered as part of a wider arc flash programme as part of arc flash mitigation measures. Alongside these, we have developed a legal duties course aimed at healthy and safety practicitioners, an electrical safety management course aimed at plant managers, owners and head engineers and a more basic essential Electrical Safety & Awareness course for workers who may come into contact with panels or live electricity in general.
Our courses last vary between 1/2 day training and full day training course. We also offer bespoke training courses which can be developed in line with your own facility’s particular needs.
We are a registered training provider with Engineers Ireland and CPD points can be claimed upon completion of our courses. We provide certificates of completion for all our courses.
Our courses are costed at a set price for up to 12 delegates. Delegates over this number can then be priced separately. If you have a smaller number of delegates, talk to us to discuss your particular needs.
All workers coming into contact with electrical networks should have up to date electrical safety training. Training should be considered if the electrical network is being altered or upgraded. Refresher courses ensure experienced electrical operatives and professionals are on top of the latest health and safety guidelines and best practices.
