Designated Master Electricians (DMEs) play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and compliance of Licensed Electrical Contractor (LEC) businesses. Each DME is responsible for planning and supervising electrical work carried out on behalf of the LEC.
To assist DMEs and LECs in navigating their duties and responsibilities, the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) has created The Competent Designated Master Electrician module. This 25-minute module presents various scenarios that illustrate real-life situations where DMEs must make decisions to remain compliant with Ontario Regulation 570/05: Licensing of Electrical Contractors and Master Electricians, the Ontario Electrical Safety Code, consumer protection legislation, health and safety laws, employment standards laws, and business practices.
Both DMEs and LECs are partners in safety and are encouraged to review the module to gain a better understanding of ethical, safety, and compliance issues that may arise in managing an electrical business.
