Due to unprecedented demand, EA Technology, technical authors of the Health & Safety Executive publication HSG 230 'Keeping Electrical Switchgear Safe', will be hosting an additional switchgear safety conference on 6th December from its state-of-the-art facility in Chester.
The Keeping Electrical Switchgear Safe (KESS) conferences have been designed to share best practice across the industry with industrial and commercial owners as well as distribution network operators and switchgear equipment suppliers.
Over 1500 industry professionals have already attended these essential conferences, which cover switchgear safety in a detailed and easy to follow one-day structure. Delegates will gain a deeper understanding of how to apply best practices in the selection, operation and maintenance of electrical switchgear equipment, which will save companies time, money and potentially lives.
The KESS conferences, which are regularly updated to ensure that all changes to legislation and standards are covered, focus on the complex issues surrounding HV switchgear maintenance and safety and the costly and potentially dangerous implications that poor switchgear management could have.
Typically based around four key topics; legislation, day-to-day operation, maintenance and replacement or upgrade strategies, the extra conference promotes the application of best practice in relation to PAS 55 the emerging international standard for excellence in asset management.
The one day conference will provide expert guidance on how to conform to latest regulations with particular reference to HSG 230 and the revised BS6626 standard for maintenance of HV switchgear.
