Training program on “Electrical Safety & Auditing”


The course is aimed to build the capacity of senior and junior supervisory staff to adopt electrically safe procedures to prevent accidents and promptly respond and take measures to tackle any emergency or hazardous situation. The course is designed to provide advanced knowledge about electrical safety for the plant managers and supervisors.

Who should attend?

Plant managers and supervisors, Safety officers, practicing engineers all those who are not much well verse with electrical safety & Audit. The program will be very much useful to all new joiners to take futuristic step towards work strategies.

Course will focus on the following learning objectives:

An in-depth understanding of electrical safety procedures & accident and fire prevention techniques Learning how to manage the situation after an accident has occurred Participatory learning to get an insight of management of fire risk Learning to cope with the critical situations created by the various hazards

Course Objectives

Personnel who are exposed to electrical hazards must understand the basics of electrical hazards and safe work practices outlined in company’s Safe Operating Practices (SOPs) in order to implement the procedures and bring improvement in electrical safety performance. The course objective is to provide each individual with an overview of management of electrical safety by knowing the hazards that are applicable to their workplace by giving them the necessary exposure of the intricacies of electrical safety to the plant managers and the supervisors before conducting the audit.
