Course Duration:  1 day

Who should attend?

All personnel that do not meet the definition of "Qualified" under CSA Z462, and who needs to know and understand the "safe approach distance" (Flash Protection Boundary and Limits of Approach) from arc flash hazards and restrictions that apply.

This includes:   Managers;  Health and Safety Professionals;  Supervisors, and all non-Electrical Trades Personnel. 


NOTE:  This course is not intended for Electrical personnel that work  on electrical equipment and installations.   

Electrical personnel must complete the 2-Day Arc Flash training to meet the CSA Z462 definition of “Qualified”.
