If your job puts you at risk of injury from electrocution, this training is going to be of real benefit. Equally, if you work indirectly with electricity, the information will be useful to keep in mind. It’s important we understand that although electricity is familiar, it’s also extremely powerful and can pose a serious threat to you and others around you – that’s the shocking truth. So best to be aware, eh?

What you will learn

This course shines a light on the different dangers that electricity poses. By working through a checklist of safe working practices, you’ll quickly get up to speed on what precautions to take. You’ll learn about risk assessments, and what an official safety policy should include. If you fail to take precautions when working near electricity, the consequences can be severe. But by following this guidance, you can reduce the risk of electric shocks, and protect yourself from harm.


About this course

Ever heard of Nikola Tesla? Nope, he didn’t invent a fancy electric car. Tesla was an inventor though, responsible for the AC motor that went on to be an integral part of that car which bears his name …and a ‘death ray’, apparently. Cool. Back in Tesla’s time, electricity was EXTREMELY DANGEROUS to work with. Lab explosions, huge fires and electric shocks were common. Things are more regulated these days – in order to protect against accidents and to make sure that people working with or near electricity can do their work safely. The bottom line is that taking sensible precautions will keep you injury-free.

Engaging the learner

There’s so much to love about this course, with a brilliant hook pairing Nikola Tesla with or homage to Elon Musk. Elon is shocked to discover how dangerous the working practices are in Nikola’s secret lab, and brings him to his car factory to show him how things are done in the modern world of strict regulation. With such familiar characters and stimulating environments, it’s no surprise that this course turned out as well as it did. It’s a live wire of energy, storytelling, and humour – but with a lot of ground to cover, it knows when to strike a more serious, neutral tone to get the information across. Oh, yes, we went there. Shocking.
