Every year, around 1,000 accidents at work involving electricity are reported to the HSE and about 30 people die of their injuries. This training module covers the strict legal standards relating to working on or near live conductors, the risks people run in working with electrical equipment and systems and the identification of obvious defects in electrical equipment.
