ESA is offering OESC training that highlights key changes to the Ontario Electrical Safety Code. For OESC workshop registration and schedule information click here.
A new version of the Electrical Safety Handbook for Emergency Responders is now available for download and purchase on the PSHSA website. The Handbook is a joint effort between the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA), Hydro One Networks Inc., the Office of the Fire Marshal (OFM) and Public Services Health & Safety Association (PSHSA).
The revised Handbook provides emergency response personnel with the information they need to work safely in electrically hazardous situations, including fallen or low hanging wires, motor vehicle accidents involving electrical equipment, emergencies on power line equipment and transmission rights-of-way, as well as in substations, underground installations, and service to houses and industrial buildings. It has been updated with the most current information, statistics, methods, hazards and tools. A copy of the Electrical Contact/Flash Incident form is also included and can be replicated for use in the event of an incident or injury while on the job.
An accompanying training program for the Handbook is being jointly delivered by ESA and PSHSA. For more information on the Handbook and this training initiative, pleasecall PSHSA at 1-877-250-7444
