Electricity can cause serious injuries and, in some severe cases, accidents resulting in death. This course looks at the basics of electricity and how it behaves. Gaining this knowledge is useful for employees, as it can help them make informed and safe decisions when working with electrical equipment. This course will start by covering the many benefits electricity brings to society, as well as its key components voltage, current, and resistance. It will explain the two main types of electricity, cover UK accident and death statistics, and describe a simple way of remembering the electrical hazards. It then goes on to provide basic instructions about how you could safely help someone you suspect has received an electric shock.
