Toolbox Talks

Stretching from the Borders to the Highlands and islands – and everywhere in between – our ever-popular technical roadshows are back for 2022 after three years.

The invaluable technical update sessions will again be touring 12 venues across Scotland in May and June, kicking off at The Walled Garden outside Edinburgh on Wednesday 3 May.

With Amendment 2 of BS 7671:2018 coming into effect on 28 March, our experts will be on hand to discuss its potential impact on Members and their work with two special presentations:

  • Presentation 1: Overview of the main changes contained in Amendment 2, including updates on arc fault detection devices, fire safety design of buildings, overvoltage protection and prosumer’s low voltage electrical installation.
  • Presentation 2: Changes to the certification given in Appendix 6 of Amendment 2.

Members will have the chance to ask questions and discuss other topical matters face-to-face with our Technical Advisers, with other SELECT staff on hand to answer any other queries.

Both the 2022 Toolbox Talk presentations are now available to view and download here.

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

Each event kicks off at 9.30am with coffee and morning rolls, with lunch provided at the end of each session. 

And because we appreciate that Members have busy schedules, all talks are concise and to the point, with sessions finished by 2pm. 

Goodie bags will also be handed out to each delegate, and COVID-19 health and safety measures will be in place at all times to help keep everyone safe.
