Martindale Electric keeps your team safe with free training resources

Whether it’s implementing safe isolation for the first time or keeping up to date with the latest compliance issues around electrical safety, Martindale Electric has put together everything you need to get started. These valuable free training resources are based on over 90 years’ worth of experience in keeping maintenance teams safe when working on or near to electrical plants and equipment.

Why electrical safety matters

With around 10,000 serious accidents involving electricity taking place in the workplace each year, approximately 1,000 more accidents occurring due to direct contact with electricity and 16% of all fatalities from accidents at work electricity related, it is essential to avoid risks from electrical hazards and always ensure compliance with Electricity at Work Regulations.

In 2016, new sentencing guidelines for health and safety offences came into effect with much tougher penalties for health and safety violations. These guidelines emphasised that the higher fines of up to £10M would apply to companies that are found to be putting employees at risk and not just to accidents. Imprisonment is now more likely for directors, managers and employees.

To get to up to date with the correct procedures required to achieve compliance, Martindale have put together all the information that you need, including details on the equipment and the processes involved, together with some great offers on City & Guilds accredited training.
