3D Safety Services offers public and private group and individual training for Low Voltage Rescue with CPR. We run public courses in Newcastle, NSW and private courses across NSW.

This is a nationally recognised course designed for those who require training to meet the legislative and industry requirements for Low Voltage Rescue in the workplace for live electrical work.

This course covers the performance of rescue procedures from live low voltage (LV) apparatus, not including overhead lines and underground cables in the workplace. It specifies the mandatory requirements of rescue from a live LV panel and how they apply in the context of transmission, distribution or rail work functions. It encompasses responsibilities for health, safety and risk management processes at all operative levels and adherence to safety practices as part of the normal way of doing work.
