The EOSH UK Award in Electrical Safety for Workers is designed to provide workers with essential knowledge and skills to safely work in environments where electrical hazards may be present. The course focuses on creating awareness about electrical risks, preventive measures, and safe work practices to minimize the likelihood of accidents and injuries. Participants will learn about relevant regulations and standards pertaining to electrical safety in the UK and gain an understanding of electrical systems and equipment. The course combines theoretical knowledge with practical demonstrations to equip workers with the necessary tools to identify and mitigate electrical hazards effectively.
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.
