ESA Guidance for Homeowners on How to Prepare for Inspections

EIN 24 ESA 400

October 15, 2021

Based on the latest public health guidelines, ESA is using a wide range of options at the Inspector’s discretion in order to inspect electrical installations in occupied dwellings. If an onsite inspection is determined to be required, please review the following guidelines on how to prepare:

Prior to the Inspector’s arrival, please identify to the Inspector if anyone on the premises is unwell, displaying COVID-19 symptoms, has been in close contact with anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19, has recently travelled outside of the country, or is required to quarantine according to federal requirements.

For both the health and safety of Inspectors and the public/occupants, the interior of occupied residential dwellings should be vacated while the inspection is being completed.

If vacating is not possible, occupants must be wearing a cloth mask as a minimum.

Inspector duties must be performed at least 2 metres or 6 feet away from other people.

Please open doors, turn on lights, remove any obstructions and provide access to areas where electrical work has been done prior to the Inspector’s arrival.

Should the Inspector be required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (i.e. Mask, gloves, etc.), after the inspection they will place their used PPE in a disposable bag. A place to dispose of the bag must be provided.

Please note that the Inspector is taking additional precautions, including disinfecting tools and practicing proper hand hygiene prior to your visit.

At ESA we are closely monitoring the COVID19 situation and are putting measures in place in line with Public Health Canada to protect the public and our inspectors. To learn more on how ESA is handling the COVID19 pandemic, please visit https://esasafe.com/newsroom-2021/covid-19/
