2009 CE Code and CSA Z462 conference series


CSA asks: “With the advent of new rules and regulations, electrical safety increasingly affects you, your company and your workers… will you be ready?"

To
help you answer that question with a “Yes”, CSA has launched a
conference series on electrical safety. After all, a key component to a
successful electrical safety management program is awareness of new
best practices for standards, regulations and safety. Equally important
is how to apply the standards in your own environment.




This
five-city, two-day conference series addresses changes in the 2009
Canadian Electrical Code as well as the launch of the new CSA Z462,
Electrical Safety in the Workplace. It should be attended by:
provincial regulators and ministry officials; occupational health and
safety professionals; plant maintenance and safety
managers/supervisors/trainers; and, of course, electrical contractors,
engineers and workers.




Combining these two elements of electrical safety will help you:

1)
Provide a working knowledge around the principles of electrical safety;
accident prevention strategies, appropriate PPE, product safety and
obligations toward contractors and temporary workers.


2) Anticipate the changes within the CE Code.



Along
with regional partners, CSA has brought together an expert faculty of
industry, government and legal experts. With a focus on electrical
safety and technical training, delegates will have the opportunity to
interact with workplace electrical safety professionals and learn from
their experience.
