Electrical Safety

Electrical Safety

About the course

This course will start by covering the many benefits electricity brings to society, as well as its key components, voltage; current; and resistance. It will explain the two main types of electricity, cover UK accident and death statistics, and describe a simple way of remembering the electrical hazards. It then goes on to provide basic instructions about how you could safely help someone you suspect has received an electric shock.

Electricity is the lifeblood of modern society, it enhances our quality of life and we are becoming increasingly reliant on it to power tools and devices we use for work and entertainment. However, although electricity has many benefits, it can also be a hidden killer as it can’t be seen, felt, smelled or heard until someone comes into contact with it.
