Developed for due diligence to Provincial & Federal
Occupational Health and Safety Regulations.
ELECTRICAL SAFETY TRAINING SYSTEM (ESTS)
The Electrical Safety Training System (ESTS) focuses on workplace electrical safety and the application of industry consensus based Standards to effectively manage the electrical hazards of arc flash and shock. It applies content from the CSA Z462 Workplace electrical safety Standard to allow you to identify and quantify shock and arc flash hazards, while providing guidance on applying a Plan, Do, Check, Act philosophy when you have to work with energized electrical equipment.
*With respect to due diligence against Occupation Health & Safety Regulations the Electrical Safety Training System provides electrical hazard specific training related to the hierarchal preventive and protective control measures. As an employer and supervisor you need to apply:
Eliminate the hazard, de-energize is the first choice;
Substitute with other materials, processes or equipment;
Reduce the risk by engineering design (e.g. engineering solutions, equipment solutions, "Safety by Design"). Ensure that adequate electrical equipment maintenance is performed and at an acceptable frequency;
Use safer work systems that increase awareness of potential hazards (e.g. apply safe guards like signage, barriers, etc.);
Implement administrative controls (e.g. training and procedures); and
Use Electrical Specific PPE, Tools & Equipment as a last line of defence and ensure it is appropriately used and maintained.
