Safe Electrical Work Practices and the 2018 CSA Z462


One of the leading authorities on electrical safety is the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). Their document “Z462” is recognized by regulatory authorities as the best practices for electrical safety. This course presents the 2018 edition of CSA Z462 which focuses on protecting workers from the two main hazards of electricity: the shock hazard and the arc flash hazard. In order to effectively protect workers from these dual hazards, employers must develop and implement an electrical safety program based upon specific principles, policies, procedures, and processes, which are spotlighted in this course. Use this course to ensure your facility is compliant with the 2018 CSA Z462’s electrical safety program requirements while also ensuring your electrical workers are protected from electrical risks and hazards.
