Water and waste water treatment plants often have 5kV medium voltage electrical systems and 480V or 600V electrical systems. High voltage systems are extremely dangerous, technically complex and subject to miss-operation, abuse and lack of maintenance. 480V and 600V systems can have incident energies 700% greater than 5kV systems causing significantly greater arc flash hazards.This one day classroom program gives operators, managers and electrical workers an understanding of the hazards of these systems and the safe work practices and procedures required to work safely around them. It address specific tasks in the ABC Need-to-Know Criteria for Plant Maintenance Technologists, meets the standards of CSA Z462/NFPA 70E and Occupational Health & Safety regulations. All participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
