October 4, 2012 – Electrical Business has assembled some of the top minds in the industry to present its inaugural Partners in Training: “Electrical Maintenance & Reliability Forum”, being held at the Country Heritage Park in Milton, Ont., October 23, 2012. DON’T FORGET! The Early Bird Deadline is October 12.

Starting the event, Daniel Langlois of CSA Group’s Global Mark Integrity Team will discuss “The Dangers of Counterfeit Products”, which regularly find their way into the marketplace posing potential fire and life safety hazards.

Flying in from Saskatchewan is Magna Electric’s Kerry Heid, current chair of the CSA Z463 committee for an electrical maintenance standard, which will discuss the impact of CSA Z463 on electrical maintenance.

Eaton’s Joe Oreskovic will then delve into creating and maintaining a sustainable UPS infrastructure. It’s all about uptime, right?

We’re very pleased to have Thomas Bishop—a senior technical support specialist at the Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA)—fly in to discuss electric motor repair to EASA standards… and he should know!

Popular electrical detective Patrick Lynch of Power Line Systems Engineering will go over some critical power system reliability case studies, demonstrating the many pitfalls that can be encountered when creating a critical electrical power systems centre.

Last to speak is David Moncur of Moncur Engineering, who has been involved in over 700 fire loss investigations, including origin and cause evaluation. He’ll explain how,
no matter how careful you are, problems will sometimes happen. Could they have been prevented?

The day concludes with a Panel Discussion “Completing the Circuit” involving all the day’s speakers, so bring your questions and ask the experts!

The Electrical Maintenance & Reliability Forum combines a trade show-like format and a series of training seminars related to key aspects of electrical maintenance and reliability. It is designed to provide electrical contractors, service contractors, industrial engineers, maintenance professionals, plant operators, and anyone associated with maximizing a facility’s uptime with valuable information they can take away to implement in their jobs and in their organizations.
