This two-day program was designed, and is taught, by senior electrical professionals, each with over 40 years experience on electrical systems from 2300V to 500kV. It is taught regularly to substation electricians responsible for medium voltage systems to 25kV and to utility personnel responsible for 69kV to 500kV systems.

It combines in-depth exploration of the Workplace Electrical Safety standard, CSA Z462-21 and practical workshops assessing and mitigating hazards for anyone working on or near high voltage systems. For Saskatchewan participants it exceeds the requirements for Qualified Electrical Workers. Since 1981, several thousand international participants have learned to recognize HV hazards created by electrical systems, equipment and devices and determined the controls used to protect themselves from these hazards.

This program is taught by certified electrical professionals with decades of field experience and solid credentials as professional adult learning instructors and includes professionally designed slides, videos and extensive use of case studies. It examines the electrical hazards found in industry and stresses the importance of the individual employee proactively recognizing hazards and applying safe work practices with the goal of zero incidents.

Who should attend: Substation Electricians, Engineers, Commercial and Industrial Electricians, Instrumentation Mechanics, Technicians, Managers & Safety Professionals.

You will be able to: Safely operate and maintain High Voltage systems. Work confidently using established safety procedures. Organize HV workers under your lead. Communicate fluently regarding your High Voltage systems. Avoid accidents and injuries. Comply with provincial/state and federal legislative requirements.
