New video: safe isolation procedure

We’ve published a new video which showcases the safe isolation procedure, as part of our Student’s Guide initiative.

Student's Guide - Safe Isolation

Steven Devine, author of the Student’s Guide to the IET Wiring Regulations, and presenter of the suite of technical Student’s Guide videos advised that knowing how to safely isolate a circuit is absolutely an essential skill – when undertaking electrical qualifications and especially when working in the electrical industry. When a circuit has been safely isolated it reduces the risk of electric shock to the electrician as well as any other persons that may come into contact with an electrical installation while work is being carried out.

Our full suite of videos aimed at all electricians – student or practising – is available on
