Course Overview

Shock and arc flash are potentially catastrophic events that can cause severe or fatal injuries. Employers have a legal duty to protect workers from workplace hazards and electrical-based hazards present a very real threat to worker safety.

The CSA Z462 standard provides guidance on integrating electrical safety programs into Occupational Health & Safety management systems, implementing best practices for working on and around electrical equipment, and demonstrating due diligence in preventing electrical injuries. Updated to reflect numerous changes to the 2018 edition of CSA Z462, this course can help you ensure that your workers and your business are better equipped to deal with electrical hazards.
