Ben has recently undertaken training and assessment to be certified for work within National Grid Sub-Stations. This included Person CBT and an on-site BESC assessment at Willington 400kv Sub-Station.
The Basic Electrical Safety Competence (BESC) registration scheme is intended for all persons who work directly or indirectly, on or near operational plant and equipment connected with electricity transmission and distribution. The scheme standards deal with safely entering, moving around and exiting work areas in addition to identifying hazards and safe working practices.
These competencies will be added to his EUSR record along with his current Cross Country Pipeline Health, Safety and Environment Passport.
