Electrical Safety Training System (ESTS) for both Electrical and Non-Electrical Workers

 

A multi-media based, highly interactive experience comprised of several modules with multiple lessons, knowledge checks and a final assessment. The ESTS uses 3-D “Virtual Electrical Workplace” scenarios and our unique digital electrical classroom as a learning aid to teach concepts. Each module includes a knowledge check that utilizes interactive elements that engage the student in the learning process. The ESTS is available for both Electrical Workers (4 hour course) and Non-Electrical Workers (45 minutes).

 

With respect to due diligence against Occupational Health & Safety Regulations the Electrical Safety Training System provides electrical hazard specific training related to the hierarchal preventive and protective control measures as an employer and supervisor you need to apply:

  1. Eliminate the hazard, de-energize is the first choice;
  2. Substitute with other materials, processes or equipment;
  3. Reduce the risk by engineering design (e.g. engineering solutions, equipment solutions, "Safety by Design").  Ensure that adequate electrical equipment maintenance is performed and at an acceptable frequency;
  4. Use safer work systems that increase awareness of potential hazards (e.g. apply safe guards like signage, barriers, etc.);
  5. Implement administrative controls (e.g. training and procedures); and
  6. Use Electrical Specific PPE, Tools & Equipment as a last line of defence and ensure it is appropriately used and maintained.

 

 

These preventive and protective control measures and the hierarchy they are listed in are recommended by Occupational Health & Safety Management System Standards like CAN/CSA Z1000, ANSI/AIHA Z10, ILO-OSH 2001, OHSAS 18001, and ISO 14001.

 

The Electrical Safety Training System (ESTS) should be used in conjunction with an Electrical Safety Program (e.g. Occupational Health & Safety Management System that can be based on CAN/CSA Z1000 for Canada or ANSI/AIHA Z10 for the United States).
