COURSE NAME:High Voltage Electrical Safety


 08-09-2019  12-09-2019  Dammam/Saudi Arabia Register

In the field of high voltage equipments, safty play an important part. Electrical safety is one of most concern in workplaces where high voltage found. It has been that over a hundred people die each year because the poor of high voltage safty in machines that are being repaired, set up, or serviced have not been properly locked out. The electrical safety procedure keeps employees from accidently starting up a machine without them knowing that the machine is under maintenance, and that people are currently working on it.

It is essential that only trained employees are instructed to use this electrical safety procedure, and in addition to this, they should be made aware of all the aspects of electricity that revolve in the machines they operate. Anyone who works around these machines, whether they’re included in the machines repair or not, should also be informed about these electrical safety procedures, lest they tamper with the lockout/tagout devices and cause danger. These people must always be informed when a Lockout Tagout electrical safety procedure is currently taking place, and that they are prohibited to work on the machines or even come near them when service is undergoing


The course aims to make candidates aware of high voltage electric safty. Employees working in areas where there are potential electrical hazards shall be provided with, and shall use, electrical protective equipment that is appropriate for the specific parts of the body to be protected and for the work to be performed.
