Electricity Safety Week at home

Endeavour Energy has created a range of fun and interactive resources so students can participate in Electricity Safety Week from home this year. Here are three ways students can join in:

1. Watch our interactive safety expert videos

Students can join our safety trainer Warwick in two 15-minute interactive sessions on electrical safety. Students will need pen and paper to participate in activities throughout the sessions.
