Course Overview

Protecting workers from electrical hazards such as shock and arc flash are major considerations in establishing an Electrical Safety Program. It's critical that workers working on energized electrical conductors and circuit parts related to construction or maintenance have the necessary knowledge, skills and training to identify and avoid potential electrical hazards that might be present and apply the appropriate control methods to reduce risk by reducing the likelihood of occurrence of exposure and potential for injury or damage. Employers are required to have an updated Electrical Safety Program that incorporates the new requirements from CSA Z462 2015 Workplace electrical safety Standard.

Developed for workers who perform energized electrical work, this course is focused on the practical application of CSA Z462 within the workplace and provides documentation tools in support of an employer's overall Occupational Health & Safety Management System and an Electrical Safety Program. The course incorporates industry-accepted best practice in applying Standards in support of meeting Provincial, Territorial or Federal regulatory OH&S due diligence for arc flash and shock management.

This updated e-learning course is designed as an affordable and cost-effective standalone training solution you can implement for your entire workforce to help establish appropriate safe work practices, reduce risk to workers and increase productivity in electrical construction and maintenance. It's built around highly interactive modules including a 3D Virtual Electrical Workspace, interactive knowledge checks, virtual work task scenarios and a final assessment to enhance the training experience.

Participants can access a downloadable Student Workbook that can be used as a guide while taking the course, and access an imbedded online Resource Toolbox where downloadable PDF resources files and additional supporting information is provided. Training certificates are awarded upon successful completion of a Final Assessment with an 80% passing score.
