Electrical Authorization for working on Electrical Equipment
Course Description
Electricity is a mainstay and the backbone of oil and gas operations. Whether it is transmitted from external sources or generated on-site, it is used to provide the power required by the systems and equipment that are associated with the daily operations of the plant. Given the various uses and power levels required, working with electricity is dangerous and as such needs to be subject to strict guidelines to ensure a stable and safe environment for all personnel. This course has been designed to provide participants with an understanding of the safety structure and protocols required when working in an electrical environment. Emphasis will be placed on the need for ensuring constant and continuous adherence to these processes and to ensure the safety of all personnel working within the operating area. Upon completion of this course, participants will gain an understanding of the criticality and purpose of the policies and procedures associated with electrical systems and equipment. Having this knowledge will help each technician develop confidence and professional enthusiasm, therefore, increasing their efficiency. The course will also accurate troubleshooting and subsequent repair of electrical equipment is necessary in today’s sophisticated industrial environments to ensure continued efficient operation and productivity of the equipment. Delegates are encouraged to raise queries both during and at any time after attending the course. Delegates are also encouraged to bring any specific issues that they may wish to raise to this course.
