Do you know?

  • As an owner of a facility you have a responsibility to your workers, either contracted or employed, to protect them from the hazards associated with the work place, the task they are to perform and the equipment.
  • As an employer you have a responsibility to your workers, either contracted or employed, to protect them from the hazards associated with the work place, the task they are to perform and the equipment.

In today’s society, everyone must attempt to be aware of what they are doing and how it may affect the people around them, and they must be prepared to accept the consequences. Electrical dangers such as shock, electrocution, arc flash, and arc blast will always be present on the job, but proper training and safety strategies can minimize the likelihood of injuries and fatalities.

Additionally, some provinces specifically mandate protection against arc flash. For example, Ontario’s Construction and Industrial
Regulations require workers to be protected against electrical shock and burns while working on or near the live, exposed parts of equipmentor conductors.

Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety Code requires workers exposed to electrical equipment flashover to wear flameresistant outerwear and use other protective equipment appropriate to the hazard.
