Inspection Results: Electrical Hazards Aren’t the Only Risks Electricians Face
In November and December 2016, Ontario Ministry of Labour inspectors conducted an enforcement blitz involving electrical and related hazards at construction sites. According to just released results, inspectors conducted 1,108 field visits to 998 workplaces, and issued 2,801 orders, including 173 stop work orders. The number of orders averaged 2.8 per visit. A breakdown of the results shows that electrical hazards are just some of the risks electrical workers face on construction sites.
Applications for electrical control panels and automation have reached nearly every sector imaginable, including the brewing industry. In Canada, micro breweries are on the rise, and one of leaders of that charge is Barnstormer Brewing and Distilling Co located in Barrie, Ontario. Owned and Operated by Dustin Norland, since 2012 Barnstormer has advanced the abilities of their brewery with the installation of electrical controls for monitoring brewing temperatures, emergency electrical shut-off switches to protect staff and equipment, and implemented a fully automated filling and seaming system.
