This one-day course is designed for non-electrical workers requiring certification in the Workplace Electrical Safety standards, CSA Z462-21 and NFPA 70E-21.

Other trades and operators do not repair electrical systems but they do operate them, continuously work around electrical equipment and often will work in conjunction with an electrician. In all of these instances, the standards are very clear; workers must be trained, qualified and certified for the tasks that they are doing.

The successful participant will gain a solid understanding of hazards encountered while operating or working around low voltage electrical installations including a full understanding of the arc hazard standard, appropriate PPE selection and safe work procedures. They will also be able to identify electrical equipment misoperation and signs of impending electrical failures.

This is a very practical course with many examples of low voltage accidents ensuring maximum buy in from every student and conformance to company safe work procedures and industry safe work practices contributing to a safer workplace with both less risky behaviour and reduced downtime.

This course is taught by certified electrical professionals with decades of hands-on field experience and solid credentials as professional adult learning instructors. This program includes professionally designed slides, videos, extensive use of case studies and hands-on demonstrations of common electrical problems. This program 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: Non Electrical Workers whose daily activities involve the operation of industrial power systems.
