This one-day course is intended for electrical engineers requiring re-accreditation in the Workplace Electrical Safety standards, CSA Z462 and NFPA 70E. The successful participant will gain a solid understanding of the hazards encountered while operating or working around electrical equipment including a full understanding of the arc hazard standard, appropriate PPE selection and safe work procedures.
They will also be able to identify defective electrical equipment and signs of impending electrical failures.
Both electrical safety standards CSA Z462 and NFPA 70E require refresher training once every three years due to the extreme danger and hazards involved with electrical work. In this time, most electrical workers have had multiple sessions of training, usually classroom with no hands-on.
This one-day course condenses the learning needed for someone who has already received our two day HV/MV QEW training or can prove with a certificate they have had two day training in the last 2 years from another provider.
Each student will receive our custom designed Electrical Safety Manual and a copy of our presentation materials. Further we will supply one copy of the latest CSA Z462 or NFPA70E standard (as per your preference) for company use and reference. These will all be delivered to you in a very convenient digital format which you can use across many devices.
Who should attend:
Substation electricians, industrial electricians, compliance engineers, electrical engineers, commissioning engineers, testing and diagnostics engineers, technicians, managers and safety professionals.
You will be able to:
After the training you will be able to: Safely operate and maintain High Voltage systems. Work confidently using established safety procedures. Organize HV workers under your lead. Communicate fluently regarding your High Voltage systems. Avoid accidents and injuries. Comply with provincial/state and federal legislative requirements.
