Electrical safety workshop – electrical safety in social housing (England)

A one-day practical workshop which focuses on electrical safety in the social housing sector.

It will look predominantly at the practical measures and controls that you can adopt to ensure the safety of the electrical installations in your properties, including:

  • Things to consider when developing your electrical testing programme for commercial, HMOs, offices and domestic premises – the frequencies of testing and how this can be tailored to your own company requirements
  • How to ‘de-code’ your electrical certificates (EICRs) – whether these are provided by in-house staff or external contractors, our workshop will help you to understand what to look for and how to identify anomalies and common ‘pit falls’ in certification
  • ‘Satisfactory or unsatisfactory’ … an overview of industry guidance to understand your coding classifications (categories) on certification and what action you should be taking as well as looking at what this means for your future programme
  • Understanding the roles and competencies of the responsible persons, such as supervisors and managers, what your organisation needs from them and the importance of auditing paperwork and people.
