CSA Z462 – Workplace Electrical Safety Public Review

CSA Z462 – Workplace Electrical Safety is now available for public review on the CSA web site. This standard is the Canadian implementation of NFPA 70E and IEEE P1584, covering electrocution and arc-flash hazards in the workplace.

Public Review Draft of Z462-12

Because of the importance of the Z462 Standard to the electrical sector, CSA staff have decided to set up the draft on the new On-line Public Review System. This system is integrated with several on-line social networks and has been made available to a wide international audience. Automatic notification will go out to all people and organizations that have expressed interest in CSA’s electrical standards (thousands of stakeholders).

There are two major differences in the way this new on-line review system works:

1.       The reviewer must first register with the system to gain access to the draft standards (name, affiliation, country, and e-mail address).

– the reviewer must have a valid e-mail address (identity)

2.       The document is only available on-line (no download) and it is reviewable only in pieces for commenting purposes.

– similar to the members’ ballot comments, the system automatically collects and sorts the comments by clause number.

Note: the new review page is also accessible via a link located at the top of the old Review Page (https://review.csa.ca/opr/opr_list.asp) – identified as “New: …Electrical public review drafts”.

For more information on this standard, please contact the CSA Project Manager, Mr. Dave Shanahan, dave.shanahan@csa.ca, or call him at 1-800-463-6727.
