Low Voltage Arc Flash Training
« on: August 07, 2014, 11:04:05 am »

Wish I had the time and money to attend this. Those Canadians really take safety for power and grounding seriously. http://www.electricityforum.com/forums/one-day-csa-z462.html

Our Low Voltage Arc Flash/Electrical Safety Awareness Workshop provides front-line electrical workers with the information they need to make safe decisions involving their work practices. From this training, they will receive the proper awareness and training needed in order to develop a personal arc flash safety strategy in the workplace.

Our Arc Flash/Electrical Safety Awareness Workshop is instructed by our certified electrical expert, who has more than 25 years field electrical safety and maintenance experience. This electrical safety workshop examines the hazards found in the workplace and stresses the importance of the individual employee proactively recognizing hazards and applying safe work practices with the goal of zero accidents.

CSA Z462-12 sets a recommended standard for Electrical Safety Training in Canada. It states that electrical workers "shall be trained in safety-related work practices and procedural requirements as necessary to provide protection from the electrical hazards associated with their respective jobs or task assignments. Workers shall be trained to identify and understand the relationship between electrical hazards and possible injury."

What Makes Our Workshop Different?

Our ALL NEW 1-day ARC FLASH/ELECTRICAL SAFETY Workshop is designed for front-line workers who are responsible for electrical systems and needing certification in the CSA Z462-12 electrical safety standard which came into effect in 2012. Workshop students will gain a solid understanding of hazards encountered while operating or maintaining electrical installations in the low voltage (below 750V) class including a full understanding of the arc hazard categorization, appropriate PPE selection and safe work procedures.

Who Should Attend: Engineers, Electricians, Instrumentation Mechanics, Technicians, Managers & Safety Professionals

This one-day training course is designed to assist organizations to identify shock and arc flash hazards and prevent injuries and incidents associated with those hazards.

THIS COURSE WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO:

    Identify electrical safety training requirements for qualified workers
    Identify best practice Regulations that address shock and arc flash hazards
    List the steps to perform a shock hazard analysis and describe each step
    Define the three CSA Z462 shock protection boundaries and describe their use
    List the personal protective equipment required for shock protection
    List the steps to achieve an electrically safe work condition
    List the steps to install and remove temporary protective grounding equipment
    Explain what an arc flash is and the injuries that can result
    Identify when an arc flash hazard exists
    List the steps to perform an arc flash hazard analysis and describe each step
    Define the term “incident energy,” identify the key electrical system variables that affect it
    Define the term “arc flash protection boundary” and explain its application
    Define the term “arc-rated” and explain the difference between “flame-resistant” clothing and “arc rated” clothing
    Select appropriate personal protective equipment for arc flash hazards
    Describe the Hazard/Risk Category method of selecting arc flash PPE
    List the testing and maintenance requirements for personal protective equipment
    Identify the key objectives of job safety planning

For other readers:
'Low Voltage' is anything up to 1000 Volts.

Yes, hard to believe that 480-V/3p is considered "Low Voltage" but that's how the PoCo defines it.
