Arc Flash Training – Certified Electrical Safety Instruction

October 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm EDT

This 6-Hour Arc Flash Training Live Online Electrical Safety Training Course Covers The Same Curriculum As Our Traditional In-Person 1-Day Training Course.

You Can Access The Live Online Training Through Our Web-Based Platform From Your Own Computer. You Can See And Hear The Instructor And See His Screen Live.

You Can Interact And Ask Questions. The Cost Of The Training Also Includes 7 Days Of Email Mentoring With The Instructor.

This 6-Hour Instructor-led, certified Arc Flash and Shock online electrical safety training course incorporates recent revisions to the latest Edition of CSA Z462 Arc Flash Electrical Safety in the Workplace Standard. This CSA Z462 Workplace Electrical Safety Training Course Exceeds Canadian Arc Flash Training Requirements

 

Who needs arc flash training?

Arc flash electrical safety in the workplace is both the duty of employers and employees when working on energized electrical equipment. This is mandated in OHS legislation, due diligence clauses, electrical safety programs, the CSA Z462 standard and various other legislation.

This workplace electrical safety training course covers electrical safety and discusses electrical safety training topics relating to the following topics:

  • The Latest Changes To Arc Flash Standards
  • Arc Flash Protection Requirements And Duties
  • Electrical Safety Programs, Safety Related Maintenance Requirements
  • Lock Out Tag Out Procedures, Safety Requirements For Special Equipment
  • Arc Flash Boundary Determination
  • Hazard Mitigation
  • Shock Protection And Arc Flash Ppe Requirements
  • Arc Flash Hazard Labels.

One workplace electrical incident can cost an organization a huge price in terms of injuries, fines, reputation and workers compensation premiums. Employers and supervisors can face personal liability for an injury in their workplace that could result in fines up to $1,000,000, four years, or more, in jail, or both.

Many workers may not have received arc flash hazard information in their apprenticeship training and many organizations do not meet current workplace electrical safety standards. This arc flash training certification course identifies what it means to be a “qualified electrical worker” and organizations should be aware that holding a license as a journeyperson may not be enough to qualify.

The importance of developing safe work procedures, training workers, identifying hazards, evaluating risks, planning and documenting safe work is covered.

This electrical safe work practices training course provides many benefits of an instructor-led course including electrical safety examples, discussion, demonstrations and hands-on protective personal equipment instruction. This provides much more benefit than watching a video. There is no room for error when working with electrical equipment so why compromise on electrical arc flash safety education?

Note: Employers have the legislated obligation to identify hazards, evaluate the risks, select and implement the appropriate controls. This course helps companies to understand their legal requirements and what due diligence is required to avoid conviction under provincial or federal OHS legislation, or the Criminal Code of Canada. 

 

Learn from our instructor and others in the class

Students will learn real-life examples and have their electrical safety questions answered by a safety professional with years of electrical safety experience in the development and implementation of a z462 training safety program.

Class discussion is encouraged and students also have an opportunity to learn from each other. They will understand the hazards of energized electrical work and how the following Top 5 mistakes workers make can lead to a very serious injury, lost production and/or a fatality.

 

Top 5 mistakes workers make when it comes to electrical safety.

  1. Failure to verify the absence of voltage before beginning work.
  2. Failure to identify the arc flash hazard, evaluate the risk of arc flash and implement the appropriate controls.
  3. Inappropriate selection and/or use of personal protective equipment.
  4. Complacency to low voltage hazards (typically 115 to 250 volts).
  5. Failure to develop and communicate an emergency response plan.

 

Our electrical safe work practices training course will students avoid these mistakes and help students to recover if they already made these kinds of mistakes.

 

Top 5 Benefits of Instructor-led Training

  1. Learn from an instructor who is trained and knowledgeable regarding electrical safety.
  2. Students have the opportunity to ask questions which are answered in class while the thoughts are fresh.
  3. Students can enter discussions and get feedback from other attendees with examples of best practices.
  4. Real life examples and solutions are used to present the information in a meaningful way which helps students relate to their own workplace experiences.
  5. All levels of experience and knowledge are accommodated.

 

Instructor-led arc flash electrical safety training classes and case studies have the flexibility to cater to all levels of experience and electrical knowledge. Even non-electrical workers will gain an appreciation for the hazards of electrical work.

 

How will taking our Arc Flash Training course make you safer in your workplace?

Our instructor-led arc flash awareness training course, delivered through our remote live training online, presents students with information they need to evaluate the arc flash and shock hazards. Our course was developed to help ensure the safety of electrical workers that may be in proximity to exposed energized electrical equipment.

Students will understand the value of a comprehensive risk evaluation, the importance of safe work procedures and pre-job planning.

Workers are given the information and workplace best practices in the course but many times are powerless to use the information because the infrastructure is not in place in their organization. Certification will not change that.

This arc flash electrical safety training course covers the analytical process of identifying electrical hazards such as shock and arc flash burns, to determine and communicate the appropriate control methods to be used. We explain why complacency can be deadly when working with circuits energized at 120 volts.

This one-day arc flash hazard training course is designed to assist organizations to identify shock and arc flash hazards and prevent injuries and incidents associated with those hazards and to improve the skills and knowledge of qualified and unqualified persons.

Note: Students will demonstrate understanding of arc flash hazards and PPE protection by passing a proficiency examination at the end of the course and receive an Arc Flash Training Certificate of Completion.
