Grounding in power plants requires highly efficient training courses in safety precaution to avoid many field hazards that includes the potential of electric shock, fire, and burns. It is essential for all employees, including supplemental labor, to be aware of the grounding risks associated with electrical work and use appropriate protective methods to minimize the risk of grounding faults.

This course covers all aspect of grounding working in power plants and goes around grounding equipment Topics include electric effect on human, preventive of grounding. Earthing electrodes, earthing connector, earthing electrodes, touch and step voltages, earthing systems lightning and electric charges.


This course will enhance participants' knowledge, skills, grounding performance, and will give good concepts on grounding managements and emergency response planning in power generation plants.


By the end of the course, participant will be able to:

  • Understand the basic concepts of electric effect on human body.

  • Explain preventive grounding.

  • Apply knowledge of electrical safety and the dangers of improper operation of electrical equipment.

  • Prevent, Report and investigate the various types of step voltages.

  • Apply knowledge of electrostatics.

  • Describe benefit of lightning protection.
