Control measure

Identify and isolate electrical systems in modes of transport

TRAINING SPECIFICATION

Knowledge and understanding

Control measure element Learning outcome

Identify and isolate electrical systems in modes of transport

Understand:

  • The types of battery used in modes of transport and their potential locations
  • The primary functions of electrical systems in modes of transport
  • How to retrieve information about electrical systems in modes of transport during an incident
  • Where electricity isolation switches may be located in different modes of transport
  • How electrical systems can be shut down and isolated safely
  • Who should isolate electrical systems
  • The need to document decisions taken to isolate electrical systems
  • The actions to be taken when electrical supplies cannot be isolated

Practical application

Control measure element Learning outcome

Identify and isolate electrical systems

Demonstrate the ability to:

  • Identify the location of electricity isolation points for modes of transport
  • Assess the risk associated with isolating a mode of transports electrical systems
  • Isolate electrical systems when appropriate
  • Inform relevant people of risks where electrical systems have not been shut down
  • Implement safe systems of work when a mode of transports electrical systems cannot be effectively isolated
