                                The Weather Makers
                                8:00 am – Hall F                  Doors open at 7:45 am
                                How Man is Changing the Climate, What It Means for Life of Earth
                                Tim Flannery
                          Flannery lays out how our actions are damaging our planet. His message is terrifyingly
                          clear, but never defeating. That’s because what follows is a call-to-arms, featuring a
                          plethora of solutions that can combat this great, but not insurmountable, challenge.
                          He draws a path through politics, economics, activism, scientific discovery and corporate
          leadership, showing us how actions at every level of government, at every scale of industry, in every
          decision we make as consumers, can lead us back to an environmentally stable and economically robust
          planet. Tony Blair said “All who read The Weather Makers will be left the wiser.”


                              Tim will be signing copies of his book in the IAPA Booth on the trade show floor
                               (booth #923) immediately following his presentation.

CSA Z462-08
Workplace Electrical Safety Standard

                                        CSA Z462 is the country’s first all-Canadian comprehensive
                                        standard to protect electrical workers. Z462 will compliment
                                        CSA Z460 Control of Hazardous Energy – Lockout and the
                                        updated Canadian Electrical Code Part I.
                                        CSA Z462 is based on the U.S. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standard
                                        NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. In fact, CSA Z462 was
                                        developed in parallel with the 2009 edition of NFPA 70E. Attempts have been made
                                        to harmonize Z462 with NFPA 70E as much as practicable for Canadian Workplaces.

                                        CSA-Z462 sets out requirements for the recognition of “qualified” electrical workers.
                                        This definition places a duty on the owners of electrical equipment in the workplace
                                        to ensure that unqualified people do not have easy access to these hazard zones,
                                        and to ensure that only recognized qualified workers are used to perform work on
                                        hazardous electrical systems.

                                        CSA Education & Training offers a comprehensive suite of training resources for
                                        CSA Z462, including workshops, on-site seminars and e-learning curriculum;
