DIPLOMA IN ELECTRICAL SAFETY
Diploma in Electrical Safety course is designed for to protect people for Electrical Hazards. Electricity is an essential ingredient of our lives and has vast social implications to all nations. It is perhaps among the greatest and most important developments of the 20th century that continues to touch our lives daily. The economic and social developments of nations have been intrinsically coupled to electricity use. The lack of electricity, or insufficient electricity, is a concern of virtually all governments. Electricity is in fact one of the prime measures of a nation’s wealth and it defines the quality of life. Electricity generation does come with a cost to the environment and there are long term impacts to the health and safety of communities.
Electrical injuries rank as the fifth most common cause of occupational fatalities. The best way for anyone who works with electrical systems to prevent injury to themselves or others, as well as damage to property, is to practice proven electrical safety methods. Electrical safety programs in the workplace not only decrease the incidence of injury, but also protect companies and their employees from the financial ramifications of a work-related accident.
In the case of the electrical industry, safety is critical and the codes and regulations that determine safe practices are both diverse and complicated. Employers, electricians, electrical system designers, inspectors, engineers, and architects must all comply with safety standards listed in the National Electrical Code, OSHA and NFPA 70E.
This course emphasizes on the various regulations and practices for electrical safety and translate these complicated standards into easy-to understand terms. Even veteran master electricians will find it informative and gain a new understanding of how to minimize their exposure to possibly injury.
It provides best international management practices for the safe handling operations of personnel working in generation, transmission and dealing with power distribution issues. And it is intended for the electricity generating, power transmission and distribution sectors.
The course book material has been prepared by the staff of Princeton Energy Resources International (PERI). PERI has a long history of working in the power sector with staff and principals’ experiences stretching back decades. PERI has assembled its own decades of knowledge and surveyed the international literature to assemble this reference for practitioners in the electricity sector.
