According to the Swedish Work Environment Act and the regulations from the Swedish National Electrical Safety Board, all who work where there is danger from electricity must have training and knowledge of the consequences thereof. They must also have knowledge of the safety requirements needed for the work being done.
ESA skilled is a part of ESA 14 wich is the electrical industry’s collective safety regulation for the prevention of damage caused by electricity. A part of the regulation contains requirements for training. ESA 14 regulates, among other things, the cooperation between line/utilities owners and contractors and contributes to having a common standard for the work at different electrical installations can be facilitated.
ESA Skilled provides instructions, according to the energy industry, regarding how work is to be organized and which requirements there are on the owner of the electrical installation. It also regulates a contractor’s work so that it can be conducted in a safe manner in operations rooms/areas or in electrical installations.
ESA 14 has been adjusted according to the changes made in the third edition of regulation SS-EN 50110-1, Care of Electrical Installations.
