Managing Electrical Risks
Risks of Electrical Equipment failure exist in all industrial plants (manufacturing, finishing, packaging, power generation, mining, crushing, processing, conveying, water treatment, etc.) with electrical power distribution equipment. These equipment often require electrical maintenance to keep them safe and reliable. CSA Z463 Standard requires industrial plants to perform an electrical risk evaluation to identify serious electrical equipment risk in order to mitigate the risk, before failures which have the potential to cause injuries, occur. PDR TECHNOLOGIES INC. CONDUCTS CUSTOMIZED HANDS ON WORKSHOPS SO THAT YOU CAN MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE CSA Z463 STANDARD, AND BEFORE WE LEAVE YOUR FACILITY, YOU WILL BE EQUIPPED TO MANAGE YOUR ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT & SYSTEMS RISKS TO SATISFY THE CSA Z463 STANDARD REQUIREMENTS.
