Getting down to Earth

Earthing is unique in that while the fundamentals are in place, certain projects can throw up unexpected challenges that require new and innovation solutions.

As a result, Earthing is often described as a ‘black art’, due to the complex and variable nature of the issues that have the potential to arise.

The IET’s technical seminar in Earthing and Bonding aims to address issues such as these, providing insights into the core fundamentals and requirements of E&B, whist also offering first-hand insights into lessons learned and case studies. 

Last year saw more than 100 people sign up, giving you the chance to share knowledge and exchange ‘war stories’ with a host of expert speakers and your railway colleagues.
