Training all of your employees properly will prevent the risk of accidents and injuries related to the presence of electricity in your workplace. This training covers all the elements to help your employees understand how electricity works and reduce the risk of accidents.

The risks associated with electricity are significant and many injuries can be avoided by adopting the appropriate behaviour. Using documented case studies, our experts will illustrate the behaviours to adopt, safety measures to apply and the PPE to wear in the presence of electricity and in accordance with the context. In addition, they will have all the tools to identify risk areas and know how to adapt your work procedures.

Trust Santinel to provide your employees with the best means to prevent electrical accidents!
