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.
