Did you know that the current in a 7.5W to 120V bulb light is enough to kill if it passes through the heart? CNESST is sensitive to electrification and has identified this danger as a zero tolerance target (1). This means that a breach of the rules could result in an immediate stop of work and criminal lawsuits.
Everyone must contribute and be aware of this reality; workers, employers or contractors. The Act Respecting Occupational Health and Safety in Quebec (L.S.S.T.) sections 49 and 51 is clear on this point (2).
In collaboration with its customers, Groupe Industriel Premium is committed to eliminating risks such as electrification or an involuntary overhead crane movement (overhead crane undergoing work or an adjacent crane). We provide solutions to achieve these safety goals while reducing downtime, whether for new equipment or for existing equipment.
