In order to ensure electrical safety at work Sweden has a very clear framework of laws and provisions. The Electrical Safety provisions (”Elsäkerhetsanvisningar” 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.
The course targets are to give the required knowledge to be able to plan and execute work such as switches and other operating orders, and be able to apply the Waterways provisions correctly. The overall target is to prevent accidents.
The course ends with a Final Test and the person taking the course can directly after passing this test print out a course certificate.
