May 10, 2016 – Keeping the work environment and your electrical employees safe is a never-ending job, and we want to recognize your hard work with the 2016 edition Electrical Safety Champion Awards Program—the first and only program of its kind in Canada, open to all Canadians across our nation.

The program aims to recognize Canadian companies and individuals who are passionate about promoting the health & safety of electrical workers. It recognizes this commitment across several categories and you can even nominate yourself! There’s also no cost to participate!

Visit www.ebmag.com/esca for more information, including News about our 2015 Champions, sponsors, Rules and Entry Form. Also see our February cover story featuring last year’s winners.

A heartfelt Thank You! to I-Gard, who is sponsoring the Individual Champion category. Long-established in electrical safety circles, I-Gard’s core competence is in the application of high-resistance grounding (HRG) technology in combination with a product portfolio that helps industrial customers reduce arc flash hazards. Its latest HRG innovation boasts active arc mitigation via an arc pressure sensor, which reduces the likelihood (and magnitude) of an arc flash—all in a single product. Coming soon is an arc flash dampening system that, in effect, uses an impedance in conjunction with an arc quencher to interrupt, control and limit an arc flash to below 1.2 cal/cm2.

“Whether a facility is looking to convert from an outdated and unsafe ungrounded electrical system—or change over from the traditional solidly grounded system with inherent arc flash risk to a safer HRG system—we have the products, personnel and experience to help,” says Andrew Cochran, president.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to join the ranks. The benefits to sponsorship are many, but they are available on a first-come, first-served basis… and only a few remain!
