Electrical Safety

BPEC has been guided by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the development of this electrical safety awareness video.

The video is not supported on some mobile devices. Please view a sceencast on YouTube here.

The growth of electrical controls and systems associated with plumbing, heating and gas installations has led to an unacceptable level of incidents with at least one plumber dying every year.

This interactive awareness video is not designed to provide or replace proper training but to give you some idea of what you need to do to correctly work with and around electrical systems and installations. You should always get the correct training and never go beyond your competence level.

Don’t think you will get away with it because you survived an electric shock in the past, you were lucky, risking an electric shock is like playing Russian Roulette, the next one may be the one that kills you.

Watch the video then get the right training for what you do!
