ESTS Arc Flash and Shock Training (Online Course)
BC Housing: 12 CPD Points
Event Description
The ESTS Electrical Safety Arc Flash & Shock course was developed for workers who perform energized electrical work and is fully CSA Z462-18 and CSA Z1001-18 compliant. The overall course content was developed using industry accepted best practice standards as the underpinning in support of meeting provincial and federal regulatory due diligence for arc flash and shock.
The ESTS Electrical Worker Arc Flash & Shock training course focuses on workplace electrical safety and the identification of the electrical hazards of arc flash and shock against an assigned energized electrical work task following a defined work flow process. Justification for energized electrical work is reviewed. Completing a Risk Assessment Procedure and the application of the Hierarchy of Risk Control Methods to reduce risk are emphasized. Additional protective measures including defining Approach Boundaries, the selection of appropriate Electrical Specific PPE, Tools & Equipment with proper pre-use checks/inspection, care, use and maintenance and content related to utilizing appropriate work practices/procedures are provided.
Learners will find training content is comprehensive and detailed, using interactive elements to help the student learn the concepts of how to apply the training in the field. Training is delivered from a first-person perspective and focuses on worker and supervisor relations. Additional videos and a 3D Virtual Electrical Workplace is used to illustrate the concepts.
