    April 9, 2020
    8:00 am - 5:00 pm

ECAA has partnered with TW Becker, Electrical Safety Consulting to offer a 1 Day Low Voltage Arc Flash & Shock Training Course.

This course is based on the requirements of the CSA Z462Workplace Electrical Safety Standard.  Attendees will receive appropriate knowledge to identify when they may be exposed to the electrical hazards of arc flash and/or shock and the actions they can take to eliminate exposure or reduce risk to as low as reasonably practical.

The training will ensure the electrician can read and interpret arc flash and shock warning equipment labels when a P.Eng. stamped arc flash hazard incident energy analysis study has been completed.  Alternately the Arc Flash PPE Category method to determine additional protective measures in the CSA Z462 Workplace Electrical Safety Standard will be reviewed, which will include how to decide what arc flash PPE is required for the energized electrical work task that will be performed.

The handout materials will include look up tables and instructions on how to use the Arc Flash PPE category method in the field.  General rules/guidelines will be provided for when arc flash and shock PPE will be required for specific energized electrical work tasks like a 208Vac three phase voltage measurement, 120Vac voltage measurement, etc.

This training course is compliant and defendable as due diligence to Occupational Health & Safety Regulations.  APD points apply.

The 1 Day training course includes the following Modules:

Module 1 Introduction

Module 2 OH&S Regulations & Electrical Standards, CSA Z462

Module 3 Electrical Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment

Module 4 CSA Z462 Clause 4 Safety Related Work Practices, Clause 4.1 General Requirements

Module 5 CSA Z462 Clause 4.2 Establishing an Electrically Safe Work Condition

Module 6 CSA Z462 Clause 4.3 Work Involving Electrical Hazards
