Roadshows are ready to be the talk of the towns

We’re currently preparing for our 2024 Toolbox Talks, which will include technical presentations on neutral current diversion and alterations and additions. As always, each event is bound to be busy – so save the date and reserve your place now!

Neutral current diversion will be among the burning issues being debated when our 2024 Toolbox Talks hit the road across Scotland later this year.

Delegates will enjoy an in-depth technical insight into the phenomenon, as well as discussing the many aspects and implications of additions and alterations in properties. 

Our FREE update sessions will again be touring 12 venues across Scotland in May and June, kicking off at SELECT HQ outside Edinburgh on Wednesday 1 May. As always, our experts will be on hand to discuss hot technical topics in two presentations:

Presentation 1: Neutral current diversion (NCD) – what it is, where it may be found, how to assess the associated risks and test for it, and how to work safely. We’ll also cover the relevant earthing systems and how and to whom this type of problem should be reported.

Presentation 2: Additions and alterations – what’s required for compliance with BS 7671 and the requirement given in Regulation 132.16 and the checks, tests and notifications that may need to be done before and after carrying out such work. We’ll also look at how to assess the rating and condition of existing equipment within the installation, including the distributor, and will include a look at the likely existing earthing and bonding arrangements that may exist. Members will then have the chance to ask questions and discuss topical matters face-to-face with our Technical Advisers, with other SELECT staff and on hand to answer other queries.

Representatives from the Scottish Joint Industry Board (SJIB) and Scottish Electrical Charitable Training Trust (SECTT) will also be in attendance.

And the team behind our popular SELECTcerts service will also be on hand at selected venues. 

Bob Cairney, Director of Technical Services, said: “Last year’s Toolbox Talks were a huge success and we’re looking forward to meeting Members again.

“Neutral current diversion is attracting growing interest, so we are keen to equip Members with the necessary knowledge to identify and deal with it.

“We’ll also be inviting representatives from selected Associate Members to take part in our presentation on additions and alterations, providing an additional viewpoint to that presented by our own team.” 

Each event will feature exhibitors from a range of leading manufacturers and service providers, including SELECT Associate Members Aico, Electrium, Luceco, Flexel, Scolmore and TIS, so you’ll be able to see the latest technology first-hand. Events kick off at 9.30am with coffee and rolls, with lunch provided and goodie bags for delegates which will include the day’s presentations. And of course, Toolbox Talks are free to attend for all SELECT Members. So check the map for this year’s dates and venues and sign up NOW – it’s bound to be busy!
