New Industry Web Portal: Safety Guide for Purchasing Electric Motors in Canada

Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) represents electrical and automation manufacturers, distributors, and sales agents committed to electrical safety in Canada. The EFC Motor & Generator Business Section has developed an industry web portal and downloadable checklist that reminds consumers of the importance of purchasing safe and reliable motors that meet safety and quality standards. The consequences of not purchasing certified products can be unsafe working conditions, legal liability, and increased operational downtimes and costs.

This industry web portal is designed to help consumers make better buying decisions by:

  • Purchasing electric motors and generators that meet product safety standards.
  • Purchasing electric motors and generators that have been certified.
  • Adhering to safety tips when purchasing electrical products online, such as being mindful of “too good to be true” pricing and purchasing from a trusted source.

The industry web portal shares important compliance standards that buyers must be mindful of when purchasing an electric motor – including checking for certification marks and purchasing from trusted sources such as authorized electrical distributors from the EFC community.

Share this industry web portal with consumers and electrical customers so they know the important safety guidelines when purchasing electrical motors in Canada.
