ON THE JOB - KE Electrical – Part of Ottawa’s Thriving City Since 1994
Ottawa and its surrounding area has become one of Ontario’s fastest growing cities because it’s a great place to live, work and raise a family. KE Electrical is has made its mark in Ottawa in the local construction industry on commercial projects in the private and public sectors as well as large-scale residential condominiums and hotels. Today, what’s known as KE Electrical, started in 1994 as Gord Kemp Electrical with Gord Kemp, president and owner, two employees and a half-ton truck.
Over Kemp’s 23-year career as owner of KE Electrical, there were always three constants; his family, his farm, and his trusted colleague, Joan O’Meara, who helped him with Gord Kemp Electrical when it first started out, to today, helping with everything from bookkeeping to administration.

As of April 1, 2015, employers must ensure that certain workers complete a working at heights training program that has been approved by the Chief Prevention Officer and delivered by an approved training provider before they can work at heights.
The training requirement is for workers on construction projects who use any of the following methods of fall protection: travel restraint systems, fall restricting systems, fall arrest systems, safety nets and work belts or safety belts.
There is a two-year transition period for workers who, prior to April 1, 2015, met the fall protection training requirements set out in subsection 26.2(1) of the Construction Projects Regulation. These workers will have until April 1, 2017 to complete an approved working at heights training program.
