What are the governing regulations?
The Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations is the federal legislation enabled by the Canada Labour Code. Electrical safety standards are listed under Part 8. The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) is the largest regulatory agency in Canada. The CSA has compiled many OHS-related standards, including the Z462-18 series, which deals specifically with workplace electrical safety. To supplement the overarching regulations created by OHS and the CSA, individual provinces and territories often set their own regulations (in accordance with federal bodies) specific to their needs.

Who must take this training?
Employees who may be exposed to electrical hazards are required to be trained to understand the hazards associated with electrical energy, as well as safe work practices and procedures for their protection, health and safety.

Other Frequently Asked Questions

Case Study: In 2013, a 37-year-old construction worker suffered second-degree electrical burns while working at a jobsite in Ottawa. He was using a power chainsaw when he accidentally cut into a live 600-volt power line. Luckily, paramedics transported him to the hospital in stable condition.

Key Takeaway: Though the root cause of this accident is still under investigation, implementing some or all of the controls we have covered in this section can help in preventing accidents like this one from occurring. Warning signs and barriers should be erected whenever there is a chance of a worker accidentally coming across hazardous sources of electricity. In addition, properly insulated tools should be used whenever there is a chance of the tools coming into contact with live wires.

I think this was a very informative course. There were certain aspects I was already familiar with and others I was not since I don't actually deal with them but as an observer it is a good reminder about what my role & responsibilities are in certain areas.
