Why Safearth Training?

If you attend a Safearth training course, you won’t just be sitting through a lecture. Engagement and audience participation are key to our approach. We present complex grounding topics in ways you and your workers will understand. We develop videos, animations and physical demonstrations to ensure topics are addressed in the most relevant and practical ways, so you will develop a much better understanding.

At Safearth, we train the experts. When it comes to grounding, and electrical interactions like induction and EMC, people often don’t realize how much they don’t know. We can change that, and equip you for your specific needs and challenges. We’ve been running training for many years and trained hundreds of people, so we understand your industry, situation, and needs.

Our team of capable trainers is on call, so we’ve always got the people we need to run the course you need.

There are many reasons why one of our training courses could be right for you:

  • Your staff need to know more about grounding because it’s related to their job.
  • Your non-electrical staff might be exposed to grounding related risks, such as substation construction.
  • You may have complex assets with many electrical systems that can interact in negative ways, unless particular controls are used.
  • Regulatory requirements change – we can get you up to date with the latest standards (we’ve helped develop them!)

We are regularly running Public Courses and can also develop Custom Courses to suit your specific needs.

Custom Training Courses

We develop fully customised training courses, with a range of delivery methods, from video or in-person lectures to on-site practical training.

We can create a training program to suit your specific needs:

  • General Grounding Awareness (various options, 30 min to 1 day)
  • Construction safety – ensure workers are safe during major projects or maintenance
  • In response to an identified hazard/near miss/incident
  • To upskill your staff, for example, so they can understand and assess what your grounding consultants are telling you
  • Staff training to learn about a regulation, standards, or ‘best practice’ change
  • To learn a new or better way of doing things, such as testing

You can rely on us to do an excellent job in the preparation and delivery of your custom course.
