High voltage electrical safety


This course is designed for electrical workers as well as non- electrical workers so they will be able to work safety near or on electrical equipment.

We are now offering the Qualified High Voltage Electrical Worker program as outlined in the Province of Saskatchewan's competency profile.

This course was designed to be interactive, experiencial, fun, challenging and very worth while.  Many of use work in facilities that have electrical hazards and are unaware of the potential hazards or methods to ensure our own safety.

For example:

If you are operating a crane and make an accidental contact with an overhead power line; are you safe?  If you answered yes because:

  • I was not grounded

  • the rubber tires on the crane protected me

  • the rubber tires of the crane did not ground the machine

  • the electricity in the lines stopped well before it could hurt me

 Then you need to take this course!

 Who should take this course?

Individuals that work around electrical lines, installations, equipment or facilities 

All electrical workers

Any one operating a hydrovac, backhoe, loader or directional drilling equipment

Riggers or operators of overhead cranes including swampers and tag line person
