Access to electrical installations

Increase safety for workers with access to high-voltage areas, thus minimizing risk to yourself and others in the proximity of high-voltages.

Estimated duration
45 minutes


Increase safety for personnel who have access to electrical installations to avoid exposing yourself or others to risk associated with proximity to low-voltage or high-voltage installations.

Target group

All persons with keys and independent access rights to areas where there are electrical hazards for the purpose of conducting visual inspections or other work in locked electrical installations.

Such personnel include those taking instrument readings, working with telecommunications, or carrying out snow clearance, cleaning and other maintenance tasks.
