  1. 1. Electrical Safety Program © Electrical Safety Authority 2013
  2. 2.  Ontario’s 2011 Electrical Safety Report ◦ identifies a 250% increase (2005-2009) in the number of electricians electrocuted on the job, ◦ representing 20% of all electrical-related fatalities in the province. GETTING TO 2 © Electrical Safety Authority 2013 ZERO ZER www.esasafe.com
  3. 3. 2008 Incident Audit Results  108 electrical incidents reviewed ◦ 80 (74%) of the 108 were assessed as not likely to have occurred if the principles of CSA-Z462 were applied ◦ Included in the 80  2 fatalities  16 criticals The data clearly indicates  safe work procedures (job plans, PPE, special tools & precautions, etc.) were either not documented or followed.
