Live low voltage work is generally highly discouraged in favour of work on de-energised apparatus or panels. However, there are exceptional cases where this cannot be avoided, and in this course you will learn how to identify the hazards associated with live low voltage work and how to manage these.
The course will also enable you to recognise the safety requirements that must be followed when performing live low voltage work, such as having a safety observer present. And, you will also learn how to rescue a worker from a live panel or apparatus, should they receive an electric shock.
Please note: This is an awareness course only and you may need other qualifications before you can do any type of work associated with Low Voltage or any Electrical work.
