Electricity - The Shocking Truth
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. Taking sensible precautions will keep you injury-free, and that’s what this course is all about.
Outline learning Objectives:
- Electricity - what dangers does it hold?
- Precautions to take when working with or near electricity
- Reducing the risk of electric shocks
- Consequences of poor practice
Why should I take this course?
If your job puts you at risk of injury from electrocution, this training is going to be of real use. 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. Best to be aware, eh?
