Canadian Standards Association (CSA) announced Canada’s first standard for workplace electrical safety. Standard Z462 Workplace Electrical Safety is designed to help prevent injuries and fatalities arising from the use of electricity on the job by specifying practical requirements.

The new Z462 standard provides guidance on safety management systems, safe work procedures, and election of personal protective equipment and other safety devices for persons exposed to hazards associated with energized electrical equipment. It further stipulates procedures for identifying hazardous electrical equipment and for the development of safe work procedures around the equipment.

According to CSA, it also sets out requirements for the recognition of "qualified" electrical workers and includes an annex that provides guidance material and examples to assist users in implementing an effective electrical safety management system.
