CSA Z462:21 Workplace Electrical Safety – Workshop
CSA Z462:21 specifies requirements for an employer’s electrical safety program, the objective of which is promoting the practical safety of workers that could be exposed to electrical hazards during the performance of their duties. Such requirements include an electrical safety policy that emphasizes hazard elimination, and an electrical hazard risk assessment procedure that addresses human performance and incorporates the hierarchy of risk control methods. In addition, the Standard sets out criteria for the identification and training of qualified electrical workers. and the selection of electrical hazard personal and other protective equipment.
The training includes a review of all relevant clauses and major revisions in the 2021 edition of the Z462 standard. Each section of the course is designed around specific learning objectives that stress the practical application of the Standard’s requirements by means of lecture, discussion and exercises.
After taking this course, you will be able to:
- Describe shock and arc flash hazards, their effects, and how to assess and control the associated risk.
