National Electrical Safety Summit, May 03, 2012

 
    Subject: Invitation to National Electrical Safety Summit, May 03, 2012    
   

 

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Electrical Safety Foundation International (Canada), I invite you to participate in our first National Electrical Safety Summit on May 03 in Mississauga, Ontario.

Electricity is present in so many aspects of our everyday work and home lives yet its significant potential risk for severe injury or even death is often overlooked. Until now there has been no national voice for electrical safety. To fill this gap, leaders from the electrical industry have joined forces to establish ESFI Canada.

Our first major initiative is to bring together thought leaders in our industry to discuss challenges and opportunities for improving electrical safety in Canada. To that end, we invite you to participate in the first National Electrical Safety Summit.

    The Summit will be a forum for discussion and brainstorming about the electrical safety issues of greatest concerns, and the opportunities and priorities for a national electrical safety organization. We’ll consider electrical safety in the context of workers, homes, children, residential fires, awareness and education needs, and counterfeit products.

We will also release the results of a national survey of Canadians on electrical safety.

Electrical accidents whether at home or, at work are devastating for the victims, co-workers, employers, and family members. For example, if a worker sustains an occupational injury due to electrical contact resulting in time off (a lost time injury, or LTI) he, or she is 100X more likely to die from that injury as compared to all other forms of LTI's combined. Help us create a national roadmap to improved electrical safety for all Canadians.

On May 3rd I ask you to join me in our first Electrical Safety Summit. RSVP today to reserve your seat and visit our web site at ESFI.ca to learn more.
