Course Details: 

Electric shock is the physiological reaction or injury caused by electric current passing through the (human) body. Typically, the expression is used to describe a contact exposure to electricity. It occurs upon contact of a (human) body part with any source of electricity that causes a sufficient current through the skin, muscles, or hair.

An electrical injury has many consequences to a body as the electrical currents can travel through the nervous system and burn out tissue in patches along the way. This can leave bizarre symptoms anywhere on the body and may lead to complex regional pain syndrome. Wiring or other metalwork which is at a hazardous voltage which can constitute a risk of electric shock is called "live", as in "live wire".

This Arc Flash & Shock Awareness course offers a well-rounded approach to the basics of electrical safety and helps increase understanding of the dangers of electricity from both a shock protection and an arc flash point of view. The Arc Flash & Shock Awareness course focuses on workplace electrical safety and the application of industry accepted best practice consensus based Standards to effectively manage the electrical hazards of arc flash and shock. It applies content from the CSA Z462 Workplace electrical safety Standard to allow you to identify and quantify shock and arc flash hazards, while providing guidance on applying a Plan, Do, Check, Act philosophy when you have to work with energized electrical equipment.

This 2 hour course is designed to foster and develop a professional, willing and co-operative attitude towards electrical safety and shock prevention.
