The next Electrical Safety Workshop will be held January 31 through February 3, 2017 in Reno, Nevada, USA. According to Paul Sullivan, the 2016 Organizing Committee Chairman, “the 24th annual Workshop should draw 500 to 600 attendees, and will include many of the committee members from the NEC, NFPA 70E, CSA Z462, IEEE 1584 and other influential electrical safety standards.”
Since 1991, the IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Workshop (ESW) has been a source of groundbreaking papers and research that have shaped today’s electrical work practices and electrical safety standards. Jeremy Smith, the ESW Technical Program Chair, explains “we have been fortunate to have attracted a consistently high quality of presenters and papers over the years. The 2016 Workshop will host papers with a wide range of topics including arc flash testing, risk mitigation and control, a case study on shock, and management strategies for improving electrical safety. The diversity and range of papers is one of the reasons why this conference is rated as a ‘must attend’ by so many industry leaders.”
