First Time Attendees

Welcome to ESW

First time attendees will find the ESW has a unique mission.

Since its inception in Dallas in September 1991, the IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Workshop has provided the premier international forum to enable and accelerate change in the electrical safety culture and pushing the envelope on what 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. While this is essential in preventing electrical incidents and injuries, 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.

What to Expect

As a first time attendee, you will find yourself in the company of people who share a passion for advancing the state of the art in electrical safety. You will hear viewpoints from diverse prospectives. People from different industries, from science and medicine, from electrical technology companies, from safety professionals, from government regulators, and from people from countries other than yours. Targeted audiences include but are not limited to people involved in electrical safety in these areas of interest:

  • Facilities construction, operation and maintenance
  • Facilities and process design
  • Inherently safer products and equipment
  • Electrical safety services
  • Training and continuing education
  • Regulations and standards
  • Forensics
  • Risk management
  • Workplace safety
  • Human error and human factors

Interact at ESW

While the ESW attendance continues to grow, the organizers strive to maintain an intimate, workshop experience for all. Technical presentations encourage interactive dialog. Meals, refreshment breaks and socials are designed to encourage networking and interaction with friends, colleagues and new acquaintances.

The IEEE IAS Electrical Safety Workshop is changing the electrical safety culture and discovering new pathways for preventing injury from electrical hazards in the workplace. We welcome your involvement!
