High Voltage Seminar Explains New Standard

Technical skills training provider Develop Training is holding a High Voltage maintenance seminar for firms and individuals to find out more about the new BS6626 Standard.

The session, jointly delivered by Develop Training Ltd and EA Technology, will look at the new BS6626 Standard, which is a code of practice governing the maintenance of electrical switchgear and control gear for voltages above one kilovolt and up to and including 36 kilovolts.

The event will take place at Burn Hall, York, on March 30th and comprise of a day of informative talks, including discussions on how the new standard will affect businesses and an open forum for people to pose any questions they may have at the end of the day. The seminar will also include a more in depth look at Legal Requirements and the HSE Perspective, along with setting Maintenance Policy and Condition Based Maintenance talks. There will also be a useful insight into putting the techniques into practice.

High Voltage Group Manager Peter De Forges said: “This is an excellent opportunity for businesses and contractors to get a heads-up on how the new standard will affect them. In an ever-changing environment of policies and regulations, it is important employers and their employees know how to follow new protocols efficiently. There will be talks on topics governing safety, maintenance policy and an analytical and failure analysis session.”

The use of switchgear is required by law to provide management systems which ensure safe operation and minimise the risk of injury. Management systems should include an appropriate system of records, policies and procedures covering the installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance and removal of the equipment. There should be definitions of responsibilities and training requirements of employees and an auditing regime to monitor and maintain the effectiveness of procedures.
