Electrical Safety offer five pre-designated operational sites for assessments and training for individuals and smaller groups.

This specification has been developed from the National Occupational Standard EPUS012 and the derived City and Guilds 2339 QCF Units 006 and 204. The specification details the performance criteria and knowledge requirements required to establish competence for the safe access, movement and egress in BOTH of the following Power Utility Environments.
The scheme is a practical workplace competency assessment of which a general electrical knowledge is expected when entering, moving around and exiting designated work areas. Three separate standards exist:
The scheme standards cover the basic requirements for safely entering, moving around and exiting work areas in electrical environments. They do not cover skills required for carrying out operational work tasks on the electrical network, e.g. cable jointing. Where individuals are required to enter more than one category of work area they should achieve all the relevant standards. The schemes are accepted as a proof of competence and do not constitute company authorisation which will be issued independently by each company. (See Site access explanation below).
