Electrical Safety Forum 2015
Find out about Future Skills' courses at the Electrical Safety Forum 2015 at Victoria Park Golf Complex on Thursday 7 May.
Having workers with the right skills, knowledge and qualifications - and who are nationally accredited - is essential for electrical contractors and businesses in high risk industries, especially those with specialised electrical needs.
For example, Future Skills' 4-day Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas (EEHA) program is a minimum safety requirement for installation and maintenance in gas atmospheres and dust atmospheres, including pressurisation.
Many industries such as mining, coal seam gas, power generation, manufacturing and high speed processing now require the Certificate IV in Electrical Instrumentation (Cert IV EI) for maintenance roles to meet the demands of increasing automation across industry.
Working with High Voltage electrical equipment is another area requiring specialist skills and knowledge in switching operations and operating HV and LV equipment. Future Skills' 4-day HV Switching Operations course and the 2-day refresher, recommended every 2 years to meet industry standards, are delivered by Nigel Boulton who has over 25 years' experience in these operations.
Future Skills is one of six exhibitors at the Electrical Safety Office's free safety event on 7 May for employers of high risk industries and electrical contracting businesses.
Speakers will discuss best practice health and safety for electrical workers, electrical equipment safety and managing the electrical equipment supply chain. The program includes:
• embedding a safety culture in your business
• industry safety programs case study
• electrical equipment supply chains
• supporting your young workers
• a panel answering your questions
