Workplace Electrical Safety


Almost all worksites present electrical risks. Anyone required to work on or near energized electrical equipment must know how to work safely with and around it. The ESTS course:

  • Provides an understanding the hazards of electricity and how to mitigate them.
  • Guides you through a virtual electrical workplace to illustrate the hazards and safety concepts you need to be aware of.
  • Familiarizes you with preventive and protective control measures and the principles to help you work safe.

By end of the program you will have a good understanding of the electrical hazards you face at work, what they can do to you, and how to identify them
