Course Overview

Our Electrical Safe Panel Entry Course will ensure that your people can safely enter electrical control panels to reset tripped circuit breakers or motor overload relays.

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require people to be competent and the need to switch off for mechanical maintenance. Effective control measures can be introduced to reduce the risk from live parts, mechanical movement, heat, arcing and explosion.

We can tailor course content to incorporate your company’s own Safe Isolation Procedure and Permit-to-Work systems.
