Welding Electrical Safety awareness course suitable for maintenance personnel, health and safety personnel, supervisors or senior managers.

Did you know that in the past three years, the WA Department of Mines and Petroleum has received notification of more than 160 electric shock incidents during welding, an average of more than one incident every week? Reference Mines Safety Bulletin 117, dated Dec 22, 2014.

Competency Training, in conjunction with the Welding Technology Institute of Australia (WTIA), has developed a course to raise awareness among personnel. The course is based on WTIA technical notes 7 (Health and Safety in Welding) and 22 (Welding Electrical Safety) and covers topics including:

  • Legislation and Australian Standards
  • Work practices and equipment, including PPE
  • Insulating materials, Voltage reduction devices (VRDs)
  • Case studies of welding incidents

The course aims include the following:

  • Provide information on Australian Standards and the Welding Technology Institute of Australia Technical Notes which detail the methods and work practices for safe electrical welding techniques and safety measures necessary.
  • Provide means for personnel who carry out welding to understand and apply the correct methods as recommended by Australian Standards.
  • Provide the means for personnel to demonstrate and document their ability to safely inspect, assess risks and safely use electric welding machines in different environments.
  • Provide an understanding of the correct personal protective equipment necessary as recommended by and in accordance with manufacturers’ instructions and Australian Standards.

Our courses are delivered by qualified, experienced trainers who have experience across multiple disciplines. Competency Training offer the flexibility of either delivering the courses on site, using the client’s own equipment and tailored training material.

Alternatively, we can host at our dedicated training centres in Perth. The Electrical Standards and Regulations course can also be modified to suit your company’s policies and procedures. This course is only available as a company run course and currently does not feature on our Public Training Calendar. For further information on this course, please contact us.
