This course is designed to give an overview into the management of temporary electrical systems for live events, based on the BS 7909 code of practice.
The event industry has developed a wide variety of electrical distribution equipment to facilitate installation in a ‘plug and play’ fashion. Whilst these systems are highly robust, they have led to a level of complacency with regard to electrical design, which has seen an increase in the risk of electric shock and fire. In the event of such an incident, BS 7909 may well be cited in any review proceedings.
