The EOSH UK Award in Arc Flash and Shock Electrical Safety is designed to provide participants with comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the risks associated with arc flash and electrical shock incidents. The course focuses on raising awareness about electrical hazards, prevention strategies, and appropriate safety measures to mitigate the risks effectively. Participants will gain insights into the relevant regulations and standards governing electrical safety in the UK, as well as best practices for working safely in electrical environments. The course combines theoretical learning with practical demonstrations and case studies to enhance participants’ understanding and enable them to apply the knowledge in real-world scenarios.
This qualification is evaluated using assessments and Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQ). To receive this qualification, the learner must pass both tests with a certain percentage.
The qualification has recommended course duration of 5 days.
Note: However the course duration may be increased to meet additional learning needs if required but not reduced.
