Electrical Safety Training
Hands-On Safety: Putting Theory Into Practice
General Arc Flash and Shock Electrical Safety Training for your electrical workers is a requirement for OSHA/OH&S compliance, and certification must be renewed every three years through effective and compliant training to align with the three-year update cycle of NFPA 70E/CSA Z462 electrical safety standards.
We offer Electrical Safety Program Rollout Training, an integral part of your electrical safety program update and implementation, which builds on the foundation of arc flash and shock training principles.
Through this course, all workers are trained on your company-specific program procedures, forms and day to day requirements for their work tasks through in-class and/or in the field practical applications and exercises.
Do your workers know how to effectively pre-use inspect, don/doff, care for, maintain, launder, store and actually use their arc flash and shock PPE, tools and equipment? Do they know what they need and what they don’t need?
Let us fully prepare your workers with a PPE training course. We facilitate this course as either a traditional training session (online or in person) or as a Train the Trainer program you can use for employee onboarding or refresher training.
Do your workers push back against work tasks and filling out paperwork? Do they struggle to perform in-field risk assessments and calculate incident energy? They may just need a little more training to help them understand these processes.
Our in-field training sessions thoroughly review these steps to empower workers to confidently perform their work tasks.
This training is an excellent and highly recommended addition to any classroom session!
A variety of Train the Trainer options are available. This package is tailored to your requirements and learning needs and includes:
- Customization to your operations
- Branding to your organization
- Powerpoint presentation, student materials and work task exercises
We can also offer Custom Training Solutions based on your unique requirements. Ask us how today!
We offer fully compliant e-learning courses based on either the NFPA 70E or CSA Z462 standards. Courses are available for both Electrical Workers and Non-Electrical Workers. Select the course that’s appropriate for the worker’s risk level.
Our eLearning courses for Electrical and Non-Electrical Workers consist of highly interactive and engaging content set up in modules so you can work at your own pace.
Courses are available online, anytime and from anywhere, or can be licensed as SCORM files for hosting on your company’s Learning Management System (LMS).
eLearning is available online 24/7 or licensed for use on your company’s learning management system (LMS). Workers have access to their training from anywhere using an internet connection.
Courses are set up in modules, so learners can work at their own pace to complete the training on a schedule that aligns with your operations.
This training consists of a multimedia-based, highly interactive experience comprised of several modules with multiple lessons, knowledge checks and a final assessment.
The courses use 3D “Virtual Electrical Workplace” scenarios and our unique digital electrical classroom as a learning aid to teach concepts. Each module includes digital reference materials and a knowledge check that utilizes interactive elements to engage the student in the learning process.
Uses industry accepted best practice Standards in support of meeting OSHA and OH&S Regulatory due diligence for arc flash and shock. Developed by industry leading Subject Matter Experts, our eLearning is an effective and accepted form of training for your workers.
A variety of instructor-led classroom options are available to fit any need. Our classroom training courses are delivered virtually online or at your facility site by Electrical Safety Subject Matter Experts with years of industry and training experience.
Your workers benefit from instruction that includes comprehensive student materials, a hands-on arc flash & shock PPE demonstration and practical work task exercises.
Our training is designed to complement your Electrical Safety Program using workflow process flowcharts, risk assessment tables and field level form examples.
This one-day electrical safety training course is intended to educate electrical workers to identify the hazards of shock and arc flash, and prevent injuries and incidents in the workplace associated with those hazards.
The training course content was developed using industry-accepted best practices and standards in support of meeting the training requirements of OSHA/OH&S regulatory due diligence for arc flash and shock hazards. The training course is focused on practical understanding and application of the NFPA 70E/CSA Z462 electrical safety standards.
- Understand the role of Occupational Health & Safety Regulations and how the NFPA 70E/ CSA Z462 Standards can be used as a basis for due diligence.
- Understand arc flash and shock hazards and how to identify when you are exposed to them.
- Understand what energized electrical work is, and that de-energization is the priority.
- Roles and responsibilities.
- Follow a Plan, Do, Check, Act continuous improvement process for managing electrical hazard exposure.
- Learn the Process for Establishing and Verifying an Electrically Safe Work Condition.
- When do I need an Energized Electrical Work Permit (EEWP)?
- Understand what a risk assessment procedure is and that it is a tool to make decisions.
- Learn the Hierarchy of Risk Control Methods and how to apply them to reduce risk.
- Learn how to perform a Shock Risk Assessment, and determine additional protective measures including work practices, the Limited and Restricted Approach Boundaries and shock PPE, tools & equipment.
- Learn how to perform an Arc Flash Risk Assessment, and determine additional protective measures including work practices, the Arc Flash Boundary, and arc flash PPE.
- Learn about Electrical Specific PPE, Tools & Equipment selection, care, use and maintenance.
- Electrical incident management and emergency response to electrical incidents including emergency release of a shock victim.
- Qualified Electrical Workers (electricians, electrical engineers, electrical engineering technologists, and other trades with electrical scope). Client worker categories include Low Voltage (LV – working on equipment at 1000V or less), High Voltage (HV – working on equipment greater than 1000V), and Task Qualified (trades with electrical scope including HVAC, Cathodic Protection, Elevator, Fire Alarm and Overhead Door and Crane Mechanics/ Technicians, etc.). Other trades with electrical scope including Power Engineers and REFM Plumbers.
- Qualified Instrumentation Workers
- Associate Electrical Workers (Apprentices, EITs, Technologists-In-Training)
- Electrical Safety Standby Person/Safety Watch (Qualified Electrical Worker or other category)
- Maintenance Managers and Supervisors overseeing personnel and contractor workforces who are responsible for adhering to the requirements of the ESP, such as Managers/ Superintendents and Supervisors/Forepersons.
Innovative solution that combines instructor-led classroom or in-field training with e-learning. The most efficient way of ensuring Qualified Electrical Workers receive adequate training. Custom options available based on your requirements.
Workers first complete their eLearning course for training on either the NFPA 70E or CSA Z462 Standard, including how to complete risk assessments for both arc flash and shock.
An Expert Instructor then provides a full day Application course focused on the practical application using work task exercises relevant to worker day to day jobs.
Most beneficial type of training for Qualified Electrical Workers using e-learning as a prerequisite to traditional instructor-led training courses, or as follow-up to classroom training.
Blended learning is the best training option to ensure workers get effective hands-on, in the field training.
Students have the ability to take the e-learning prerequisite portion of their blended learning anytime prior to classroom training. Our e-learning is available online 24/7 or hosted on the employer’s LMS for internal use.
Other options include traditional classroom training followed by a session of hands-on training in the field.
These can be scheduled back to back or on a different schedule to accommodate your operations.
With e-learning, students learn through a variety of activities that apply to many different learning styles. Everyone benefits from workers spending less time demobilized in a classroom. Students are able to prepare and obtain prerequisite knowledge at their own pace.
With in the field training sessions, consideration is made for how workers perform their tasks day to day, and instruction and exercises are tailored around what would provide the biggest benefit to the students.
