Beat the Buzzer is back!

The presentations are polished, the goody bags packed and our teams are gearing up for eight weeks on the road as the 2024 Toolbox Talks prepare for launch.

Our ever-popular roadshows will once again be touring 12 venues across Scotland in May and June, delivering a wealth of FREE technical advice to Members far and wide.

Kicking off at SELECT HQ outside Edinburgh on Wednesday 1 May, our update sessions will this year deliver invaluable insights into neutral current diversion (NCD) and additions and alterations.

Delegates will enjoy an in-depth insight into both topics, with our technical experts and other SELECT staff on hand to answer your questions and discuss any other issues face-to-face afterwards.

There will be lots of exhibitors to visit

As always, we’re delighted that representatives from the Scottish Joint Industry Board (SJIB) and Scottish Electrical Charitable Training Trust (SECTT) will also be in attendance.

The team behind our popular SELECTcerts service will also be on hand at the Glasgow event on Thursday 23 May to answer your questionsvia an in-person helpdesk. 

And our fiendish Beat the Buzzer game will also return for 2024, with a new challenge to test competitors’ skill and the chance to win plenty of great prizes.

Bob Cairney, Director of Technical Services, said: “With only a few weeks to go, the SELECT teams are looking forward to getting out there and meeting Members across Scotland.

The talks are always informative

“Neutral current diversion is a hot topic that is attracting growing interest, so we’re keen to equip Members with the necessary knowledge to identify and deal with it where necessary.”

Each event will feature exhibitors from a range of leading manufacturers and service providers, including Associate Members Aico, Electrium, Luceco, Scolmore and TIS, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to see the latest industry technology first-hand.

Joining us this year for the first time are new Associates Electric Heating Company, Lumi-Plugin, Power Quality Expert, Fergus, Acutest and KSR Lighting, so make sure you drop by and see their products and services.

Each event kicks off at 9.15am with coffee and rolls, followed by lunch provided at the end of each session and goody bags for each delegate 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! 

Members have the chance to hear updates from the experts


Where you can meet our experts

Our team will be visiting 12 locations across Scotland. This handy map will help you find the one nearest to you.



Our first Toolbox Talk of the day will outline what NCD 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.



This discussion will focus on what’s needed for compliance with BS 7671 and the requirement given in Regulation 132.16 and the checks, tests and notifications that may have 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.
