Reducing Injuries, Deaths & Fires in the Home: Crossing the Next Frontier in Electrical Safety

On November 23, the Electrical Safety Authority would be honoured if you could lend your expertise and join a group of concerned stakeholders from across Ontario to discuss electrical safety for the largest at-risk group: children. 

In the last decade, more than half (60%) of non-work related electrical deaths happened at home. Since 2002, emergency rooms in Ontario have treated hundreds of children for electrical injuries each year and these numbers have not decreased since 2011.

Together we will brainstorm and share insights on how to tackle this important issue and ultimately, develop a strategy to prevent the electrical injury and death of our most vulnerable citizens. Our hope is that with individuals like you at the table we can make homes safer for our youngest loved ones.
