PV Systems Safety
In PV Systems Safety, you'll learn ...
- PV system characteristics and potential hazards
- Relevant safety standards and codes
- Possible injuries and basic first aid concepts
This course provides helpful and easily-accessible instructions on how to work safely with photovoltaic (PV) systems. The course includes a description of specific hazards, their frequent causes, and ways to prevent and avoid them.
This course has three different sections:
- The PV System Characteristics and Hazards section provides the background of PV system characteristics and relevant hazards involved with PV systems. Recommended safe-guards are provided.
- The Safe PV Systems section presents a discussion of relevant safety standards and codes, and regulations that need to be followed and applied when designing, installing, testing and commissioning a PV system.
- The For Your Health section contains a discussion of possible injuries and elaborates on basic First Aid concepts.
Each installation presents hazards to engineers, technicians and maintenance staff. Helping you distinguish these hazards and avert injury is the main goal of this course.
This course is suitable for engineers and technicians involved in PV system installation and operation. Presented details cover issues related to safe work with PV systems. Upon successful completion you will be able to recognize critical PV safety issues and will learn ways to avoid potential accidents.
