Electrical Safety Training System (ESTS) Electrical Worker 2018 – Canada, Arc Flash & Shock - LearnerVerified™
The newest version of our 2018 ESTS course was developed for workers that perform energized electrical work. The newest version of our 2018 Z462 compliant ESTS course was developed for workers that perform energized electrical work. The overall course content was developed using industry accepted best practice standards as the underpinning in support of meeting Provincial or Federal regulatory due diligence for arc flash and shock.
ESTS Electrical Worker training is based on industry Standards and Regulation, providing documentation tools in support of the Employer’s overall Occupational Health & Safety Management System and an Electrical Safety Program. Employers are required to have an updated Electrical Safety Program based on industry Standards and Regulations for workers to receive the most benefit from this course.
Combined with educational best practices including Blume’s taxonomy of learning: allowing learners to learn through visual, audio and kinetic means. Heinrich’s Triangle of preventing Industrial Accidents is also utilized to interpret and manage risk.
Learners will find training content is comprehensive and detailed, using interactive elements to help the student learn the concepts of how to apply the training in the field. Training is delivered from a first-person perspective and focuses on worker and supervisor relations. Additional videos and a 3D Virtual Electrical Workplace is used to illustrate the concepts.
The training is based on the CSA Z462-18 Standard and is OHS Z-1001 compliant.
Students who score 80% or greater earn their training certificate and can apply for 0.6 Continuing Education Units (CEU's). Final assessment questions are fully randomized so Workers never have the same exact questions.
