A key component to a successful electrical safety management program is awareness of new
best practices for standards, regulations and safety. Equally important is how to apply the
standards in your own environment.
This two-day, four-city conference series will review and address changes to the new
2012 editions of the Canadian Electrical Code Part I and the Z462 Electrical Safety in the
Workplace Standard.
Focused on both national and regional issues, the conference sessions will highlight the
need to adopt best practices and safer work procedures, with a particular emphasis on
the legal and ethical responsibilities employers have to their workers. In addition, updated
installation requirements will be reviewed, including those in the emerging areas of solar,
photovoltaic and electric vehicle technologies.
The conference will provide a detailed look into the numerous changes for which companies
and workers need to prepare, especially those that affect safety and work practices in the
installation of new and emerging technologies.
ASK THE EXPERTS: OUR PANEL OF ELECTRICAL SAFETY EXPERTS WILL BE AVAILABLE
TO ANSWER YOUR SPECIFIC QUESTIONS AROUND ELECTRICAL SAFETY.

CSA Z462 OVERVIEW AND CHANGES
DANIEL ROBERTS - Safety Manager, Schneider Electric
CSA Z462 was the first comprehensive Canadian Standard intended to address safety-related work practices relative to electrical power
systems. Since its launch in 2008, CSA Z462 has gone on to become one of CSA best selling Standards. The next edition of the Standard
will be undergoing some significant changes. This presentation will provide a review of key elements of CSA Z462 and the upcoming
changes for 2012.
11:00 - 12:00
ELECTRICAL SAFETY AND WORKING LIVE: ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARDS, ARCFLASH AWARENESS
TERRY BECKER - CEO, Senior Management Consultant, ESPS
Working on energized equipment should be the EXCEPTION not the RULE. This seminar will look at how Z462 defines working on
energized equipment, when is it allowed under the standard, and what procedures are to be followed when work is to be done on
energized equipment.

Arc Flash PPE - Applying Risk Management Principal
DANIEL ROBERTS - Safety Manager, Schneider Electric
Arc flash personal protective equipment is generally selected and deployed based on one of two methods: an incident energy analysis method
or a hazard/risk category method. Neither of these methods adequately addresses this important task. The objective of this presentation is to
identify and apply current risk management principles and methodology to the selection and deployment of arc flash personal protective
equipment
2:30 - 3:30

LEGAL REQUIREMENTS/LIABILITY ISSUES AROUND ELECTRICAL SAFETY
GREGORY GREEN - Manager, Technical Services, OH&S Division, NS Department of Labor & Advanced Education
As a manager, supervisor or employer it is your duty to ensure the safety of your workforce. “Due Diligence” is most often used to describe the
legal concept as a defense against charges under provincial law based on OHS regulations, standards (eg. Bill C45). In light of new guidelines
under CSA Z462 and regulations under OH&S, this session examines the organization’s legal obligations and principals under risk management.
9:45 - 10:45

WAYNE ROGERS - Principal, JW Rogers Consulting
In accordance with the CEC P.1, CSA M421 sets out the minimum safety requirements for installation and maintenance of

Hazardous Energy (CSA Z460), Workplace Electrical Safety (Z462) and the 2012 CEC.
11:00 - 12:00

BOB NELSON - Seminar Speaker/Developer, CSA
This presentation will review the key requirements contained in Section 64 for renewable energy systems. This much needed
Section is a major update to the 2012 CEC and identifies the requirements for fuel cells, small and large wind systems,
micro-hydro and hydrokinetic systems, as well as inverters and storage batteries. The presentation will also introduce the new
requirements for stand alone and grid connected systems including the grounding and bonding requirements.

examples on the latest equipment.
2:15 - 3:15
ELECTRICAL SAFETY PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT
TERRY BECKER - CEO, Senior Management Consultant, ESPS
The intent behind the standards such as the CSA Z1000 is to encourage a more systematic approach to meeting defined occupational
health and safety objectives, and to increase awareness of workplace health and safety. The Plan Do-Check-Act model is the
integration with the other management systems embraced by progressive organizations. Learn about the need to develop an
effective work plan and how to use proven principals in light of possible equipment failure and other possible hazards.
3:30 - 4:30
TRENDS IN OUTDOOR LIGHTING
