ESA Waterways

Our course ESA Waterways covers the safety provisions of the hydropower industry and has been developed to fit instructed persons who need to do work in the vicinity of waterways in hydropower stations and water reservoirs, and who need to do work on or in the vicinity of moveable and rotating installation parts. In order to ensure electrical safety at work Sweden has a very clear framework of laws and provisions. The Electrical Safety provisions (”Elsäkerhetsanvisningarna” in Swedish) are supplemental to the law. Waterways is a specific provision by the Swedish hydropower industry focussing on work safety in connection with waterways.
