Electro-Sensitive Protective Equipment Awareness Training

Course Synopsis

ESPEs (more commonly known as light guards or light curtains) provide protection for staff when working around machinery. However without a good knowledge of how they operate and their limitations, they can sometimes present a false sense of protection.

This 1/2 day awareness course is designed to give you an understanding of how ESPEs operate and how they should be installed to comply with European and International standards to give the best protection possible. The course will also provide guidance of how to maintain and periodically test them.

All our courses are delivered by fully trained and qualified lecturers with a wealth of knowledge and experience in their given fields.
