Infrastructure Health & Safety Association

Temporary grounding systems were developed to provide safety for those working on de-energized equipment. This program addresses the advantages of equipotential grounding and bonding over traditional methods. Discussions include the process by which a safe work environment can be created using equipotential grounding and bonding systems.  Participants are required to bring their own CSA approved head, foot and eye protection, leather work gloves, rubber gloves Class #2 and suitable work clothes for outside work (FR rated for work in an electrical environment.)  The participant will not be permitted to participate in the course if they do not bring the noted personal protective equipment and tools.
