Regulations on safety during work in and operation of electrical installations (FSE) require everyone who works at or near electrical installations to undergo an annual safety training. It is the general manager of the company that is responsible for ensuring that this is observed. The purpose of the course is to help avoid accients.
The training applies to anyone who works with electricity, as installer companies with fitters, assistants and apprentices, industrial companies with electrical personnel or instructed personnel such as caretakers, construction operators, operators, and production personnel. The course affects first aid as an introduction, but a full first aid course must be completed as well.
