IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Workshop

The flagship conference for the IAS Electrical Safety Committee is the IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Workshop. Since its inception at the first meeting of the Safety Subcommittee of the IEEE IAS Petroleum and Chemical Industry Committee, held in Toronto in September 1991, the IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Workshop has provided the forum to enable and accelerate change in the electrical safety culture limiting what we feel is possible in preventing workplace injuries from electrical hazards.

The mass market in electrical safety conferences is in the area of training and compliance with standards and regulations – helping people and organizations understand and apply current requirements. This is essential to preventing electrical incidents and injuries, but it is not the primary mission of the IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Workshop. Our mission is more about path finding and creating the future in electrical safety by changing how we think about what is possible, or in other words, changing the electrical safety culture.

Our Mission is to: ·

  • Accelerate application of breakthrough improvements in human factors, technology, and managing systems that reduce risk of electrical injuries,
  • Stimulate innovation in overcoming barriers,
  • Change and advance the electrical safety culture to enable sustainable improvements in prevention of electrical accidents and injuries.

Our Strategy includes:

  • Providing forums for people to meet and exchange ideas for preventing electrical accidents and injuries in the workplace
  • Accelerating advancements in development and application of technology, work practices, standards, and regulations
  • Linking professionals and centers of excellence in industry, engineering, government and medicine

Mark your calendar and make your plans to attend the 2024 IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Workshop on March 4-8, 2024 in Tucson, AZ, USA at the El Conquistador. We hope you can join us in Advancing the Electrical Safety Culture!
