CSA Z-462 2018 Edition As of January 2018 - Important Changes That You Should Know About.
Make sure you are aware and compliant with the many changes to the NEW 2018 CSA Z462 Arc Flash/Electrical Safety Standard, which came into effect in January 2018.
Our popular one-day CSA Z462 Arc Flash Training course is designed for front-line workers who are responsible for electrical systems and needing certification in the CSA Z462 electrical safety standard. This standard covers safe work practices related to electrical dangers in the workplace. Students will gain a solid understanding of hazards encountered while operating or maintaining electrical installations in the low voltage (below 750V) class including a full understanding of the arc hazard categorization, appropriate PPE selection and safe electrical work procedures.
This one-day Instructor-led Arc Flash Training course is much more educational experience than taking an online training course or watching an online video!!
Arc Flash Training is Required by NFPA 70e and CSA Z462
This requirement for training isn’t new. In fact, requirements for adequate arc flash training can be found in industry standards like NFPA 70e and CSA Z462 and OSHA regulations for some time.
Do You Need Arc Flash Training?
CSA Z462 requires employers to properly train their electrical personnel. Any workers who work on or near exposed energized parts must be “qualified workers,” and those individuals need specialized training to help prevent electric shock. Other workers are considered “unqualified workers,” and primarily need to be trained to recognize hazardous situations and keep away from them. Qualified workers must to be trained to deal with those situations safely, as part of their duties.
What Makes Our Workshop Different?
Our ALL NEW 1-day Arc Flash Training course is designed for front-line workers who are responsible for electrical systems and needing certification in the CSA Z462 electrical safety standard which came into effect in this year. Workshop students will gain a solid understanding of hazards encountered while operating or maintaining electrical installations in the low voltage (below 750V) class including a full understanding of the arc hazard categorization, appropriate PPE selection and safe work procedures. We also offer a 1-day High Voltage electrical safety workshop. www.electricityforum.com/electrical-training/high-voltage-safety-training

Note: Students will demonstrate understanding of arc flash hazards and PPE protection by passing a proficiency examination at the end of the course!
This course comes with an Arc Flash Training Certificate.
UNDERSTANDING ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEMS
PREPARING TO WORK SAFELY
ESTABLISHING AN ELECTRICALLY SAFE WORK CONDITION
The most effective way to prevent electrical injury is to completely remove the source of supply. This section will discuss the methods and process of achieving an electrically safe work condition. Including the following:
Working On or Near De-energized Electrical conductors or Circuit Parts That Have Lockout Devices Applied
Hazardous Electrical Energy Control Procedures
DETERMINING SAFE APPROACH DISTANCE
Shock Hazard Boundaries
BASIC METHOD FOR DETERMINING ARC FLASH HAZARD ASSESSMENT
Safety-related Electrical Maintenance
Electrical Hazard Labels, Arc Flash and Shock Labelling
NEW ANNEX: Prevention of Shock Injuries from Electrostatic Discharges
Prevention of Shock Injuries from Electrostatic Discharges, describes workplace scenarios, such as high-speed network operations, in which potential for shock injury from electrostatic discharge exists. This Annex identifies methods to prevent, control, and protect personnel from injury.
NEW: DC Safety-related Work Practices
The latest edition of Z462 has considerably more information on safety-related practices relating to work on and around DC systems. A new Shock Protection Boundary Table for DC systems and an arc flash energy calculation method for DC systems have been added. Extensive revisions have been made to deal with safety-related practices for batteries, battery rooms and battery enclosures. Both high value for anyone working on or around DC equipment. This new additional information is essential for working on DC systems.
