Safety In Question

Electrical Contractors Association in Canada draws criticism (and some praise)

The Officer of the Auditor General in Ontario released its 2020 report and mentioned a certain Canadian safety organization, specifically pointing to its failure to prevent illegal electrical installations.

Ontario Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk stated in her report, released Dec. 7, that while electrical safety has increased in the province over the last 10 years, “the ESA has been unsuccessful in preventing illegal electrical installations, a problem that is widespread in Ontario.

“This is partially due to the fact that only ESA-licensed contractors are legally allowed to perform electrical installations with two main exceptions: homeowners can put in installations in their own homes, and an owner or an employee can put in installations within an industrial facility or on a farm.”
