The Canadian electrical industry is calling on all tradespeople and those who benefit from them, to set aside October 6 as a day to raise awareness on the long-term consequences of electrical shock exposure. Electrical injury isn’t unique to the electrical trade. It can impact all trades. Electrical injury can cause damage in invisible ways and injury doesn’t always show up at the time the shock was received. We need to bring awareness to the fact that a shock may not cause issues right away but will surface, in some cases, years later.
CECA has posted answers to frequently asked questions as well as links to additional resources on our website. You can download a poster with a QR code that can be put up at your place of work.
