Advance Electrical Safety and Installation Training 2017

Advance Electrical & Installation Safety Training in Commercial & Large Plants 2017

Course Description


Due to fault in electrical wiring systems of any site account for the majority of disaster and in some cases fatal electrical shock accidents.

Every year more than 25000 are killed by electricity at work in India alone, In addition to these disasters, more than 1,00,000 major injury accidents and injuries are also reported.

Around 25% of all electrical injury accidents are caused by Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Faulty electrical leads & wiring causes more than 2000 fires each year.

Property owners and managers should take responsibility for the overall safety of electrical installations i.e. fixed wiring, installation, inspection, testing and maintenance.
