Len Cicero is a founding member and executive member of the CSA Z462 Workplace Electrical Safety techical committee - Canada's first
workplace electrical safety standard. Len has authored several articles
for technical and OHS magazines on the topic of Lockout and Other Methods.
In addition, Len has participated on 2 occasions with the CSA Electrical
Safety Road Show across Canada, delivering sessions on workplace electrical
safety to hundreds of workers
onsite training that is tailored to your company. Included are hands-on
The workers are trained specific to your company’s electrical
safety program. All training is based on CSA Z462-15.
Training covers all aspects of workplace electrical safety including
- establishing an electrically safe work condition (lockout) electrical
hazard analysis, shock and arc flash boundaries, in addition to
electrical specific PPE and clothing.
Also discussed on how to read, understand and apply the detailed
Each participant receives a certificate upon successful completion (full day session only).
- Courses range from 2 hour (refresher), half day
sessions and full day sessions
will provide a complete assessment and gap analysis of your current electrical
safety program and practices. This helps in ensuring compliance with current standards
(CSA Z462-15) and OHS Regulation.
Work practices are observed through employee interviews and job
shadows to compare to CSA Z462-15.
In addition, a review of polices and procedures. This is followed
by a full report including detailed recommendations.
offers complete program development for all industries, including
manufacturing, health care, educational, institutional, service
sector, commercial and construction.
Lenco will work with management and workers to develop
a workplace electrical safety program that is not only comprehensive,
meets current needs and standard, but also is practical itself that
your workers will follow it. Moreover is incorporated into the overall
OHS management system.
Lenco recommends following these steps in the development
and in maintaining your program.
PLAN: An organization selects an appropriate
industry standard with which it wants to comply. The elements
of the standard form a framework of requirements around which
an OHS program can be built.
DO: The organization then populates the
selected standard framework with comments and reference documents
to create a "living document" that gives the real-time
OHS program status (single location where all current relevant
OHS program information is maintained)
CHECK: In order to determine compliance
with the standard and/or to do a gap analysis to identify continuous
improvement opportunities the standard framework is linked to
an audit tool. The outcome of an audit or gap analysis is a
list of recommendations (areas for continuous improvement) that
are then tied back to the "living document" (content
in the framework).
ACT: Based on the audit or gap analysis
recommendations the organization then needs to take corrective
action to improve program performance and update the "living
document". All corrective actions are also logged to provide
an audit trail and to record documented proof of due diligence.
IMPROVE: Drive continuous improvement by
repeating this process.
