Electrical High Voltage Safety

Nebosh Brochure


Electricity can be very dangerous. Electricity always takes up the shortest path to ground via a conductor. As human body is a conductor, it is very easy and likely for the human body to fall prey to electric shocks. Depending upon the voltage, even a small magnitude of electricity may prove fatal sometimes. Though 100-200mA appears to be a very small magnitude of electricity, it may even take away a human life.

It is not only the employer who is held responsible for providing safe working conditions. The employees also share an equal responsibility for making the work area a safer one. However, it's the duty of the business owner to see that employees be trained to use the equipment correctly, to prevent impending dangers. Employees should be made aware of the main dangers associated with the use of electrical equipment. This course outlines the requirements of the current legislation on electricity and encourages the safe use of electricity in the workplace.
