Work dead safely: Stay alive 

SELECT is running an ongoing campaign to raise awareness of safe isolation and the importance of following correct procedures at all times. 

Running under the banner ‘Work dead safely: Stay alive’, our campaign highlights the steps operatives should take and reinforces the importance of using lockout kits. 

It also graphically outlines the dangers of not safe isolating correctly, with case studies of electricians who have been burned, scarred for life and even killed in preventable accidents. 

Designed to be shared online, on-site and in offices and colleges, the campaign includes a free downloadable brochure and infographic, plus this easy-to-follow Ten Steps to Safe Isolation video: 

We also support the work of the Scottish Electrical Charitable Training Trust (SECTT) and Electrical Safety First (ESF), who distribute free lockout kits to more than 650 apprentices every year.
