SELECT, the trade body for Scotland’s electro-technical sector, has announced the venues and dates for its 2016 Toolbox Talks.

The purpose of the event is to disseminate “the latest technological information to the widest possible number of trade professionals”, according to a spokesperson.

The tour will launch on Monday the 9th of May in the Tweed Horizons Business Centre in Newton St Boswells before touring nationally, from Shetland to Lanarkshire and concluding at the Caladh Inn, Stornoway on Wednesday 29th of June.

SELECT’s head of communications and members services, Alan Wilson, said, “We have been blown away by the interest in the Toolbox Talks events, now entering its fourth year.

“What I find most satisfying is that it’s a mix of skilled contractors wanting to keep up with their craft, and those in related fields looking to stay up to date with the best of the contracting industry.”

Dave Forrester, SELECT’s head of technical services, added, “The events are structured to provide detailed technical information and guidance which we hope our members will find useful.”

Topics to be covered this year include “Safe Isolation and Periodic Inspection and Testing, under BS 7671, and the completion of Electrical Installation Condition Reports”.
