Our popular Combined Arc Flash Training course is designed for front-line workers who are responsible for electrical systems. 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 AND the high voltage class.
This two-day course is designed to assist organizations to identify shock and arc flash hazards and prevent injuries and incidents associated with those hazards.
Our Combined Arc Flash/Electrical Safety Awareness Workshop is instructed by our certified electrical expert, who has more than 25 years field electrical safety and maintenance experience. This electrical safety workshop examines the hazards found in the workplace and stresses the importance of the individual employee proactively recognizing hazards and applying safe work practices with the goal of zero accidents.
CSA Z462 sets a recommended standard for Electrical Safety in Canada. It states that electrical workers "shall be trained in safety-related work practices and procedural requirements as necessary to provide protection from the electrical hazards associated with their respective jobs or task assignments. Workers shall be trained to identify and understand the relationship between electrical hazards and possible injury."
Our Electrical Safety Training Course offers:
Identify Electrical Safety Training Requirements For Qualified Workers
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 3rd 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.

Recognizing Electrical Safety Hazards - Where Do They Exist?
A detailed review of critical electrical safety hazards created by energized electrical equipment:
Resolving Electrical Safety Hazards
Objective: Determine the controls used to protect workers from all energy sources created in the workplace. Benefits of a safe workplace include fewer injuries, lower worker compensation costs, reduced service interruptions, greater protection of capital investment, and increased uptime. This section will provide you with a detailed blueprint that maximizes electrical safety and all the benefits it generates.
GENERAL ELECTRICAL SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
This section of the course will instruct how to: interpret and use a single line diagram to write a switching sequence to safely isolate an electrical device for work; Validate existing operating orders and switching procedures; and Develop and maintain mandated documentation for all electrical equipment isolation and maintenance work.
