NEN 3140 WV

The Working Conditions Act obliges the employer and employee to create an electrically safe work environment. The NEN 50110 / NEN 3140 guideline helps to guarantee this safety. This standard not only applies to the electrical installation industry, but to all technicians involved in electrical installation.

The NEN 3140 standard provides an outline of how to work safely with electrical installations. The NEN directive sets out minimum requirements that workplaces and work equipment must comply with, so that employees can work safely in those places. Our NEN 3140 course meets the European NEN 3140 guidelines.
