Course Overview

PROGRAM SYNOPSIS: This video explains the important changes and updates contained in the 2018 CSA Z462 and discusses how electrical workers can be protected from both the shock hazard and arc-flash hazard presented by exposed energized parts. The 2018 CSA Z462 places an emphasis on controlling risk. As such, the electrical safety program, the shock hazard assessment  and the arc-flash hazard assessment must now consider the likelihood as well as the severity of injury related to an electrical hazard. When controlling risk, the 2018 regulation now requires that a specific hierarchy of controls be followed. Another new requirement is that the potential for human error be considered in all risk assessments. Annex U has been added to help explain how human performance can be applied to workplace electrical safety. The required elements of the electrical safety program have been revised to now include a written job safety plan in addition to a job briefing, inspection of equipment, incident investigation and risk assessment. Other key revisions include the addition of an additional unit of measure for incident energy, the selection of arc-rated protective equipment and establishing the arc-flash boundary. Key definitions have also been updated, including qualified worker, shock hazard, arc-flash hazard, arc-flash boundary and electrically safe work condition. The 2018 CSA Z462 now includes both employer and worker responsibilities. After viewing this program, electrical workers and supervisors will have an understanding of those responsibilities and be convinced that always following electrical safe work practices and procedures is the only way for electrical workers to stay safe
