Course – Electrical Awareness (Whangarei)

Presenter: Lionel Smith
Venue: – Winstone Otaika Quarry
Electrical Awareness for Quarry Managers and Supervisors
This course is based on AS/NZ Standards and is more focused on what to look for within the Quarry Industry in terms of electrical awareness. It is run by a Mining/Quarrying electrical inspector from Australia. It does not give the training to undertake electrical work.
The Worksafe Quarry inspectors have attended this course and it would assist attendees to identify what the inspectors would be looking for in a site inspection. This course would also be beneficial to suppliers of electrical services to Quarry companies and we would strongly recommend that companies circulate to the electrical contractors for their site for consideration to attend.

• Senior management (Area managers)
