Jeff MacKinnon, P.Eng., PE of JMK Engineering Inc

Topic:

Electrical Safety in 2016

Electrical Safety is an ever evolving topic, and in 2015 there was the biggest change in CSA Z462 since its creation. This presentation will be a short history on where Electrical Safety started, where we are today, and where it is likely going.


We will discuss the history of CSA Z462, how it is applied in the workplace and what the standard is, and just as important, what it isn't.
