The Renewables Academy are now officially a Global Wind Organisation Certified Training Organisation.
The GWO is an association of Wind Turbines owners and manufacturers with the aim of supporting an injury free work environment in the wind industry.
This standard has been developed in response to the demand for recognizable Basic Safety Training (BST) in the industry. The development of this standard has been done in cooperation between the members of GWO.
The objective with the standard is to develop common industry training and best practice standards on health and safety, as a vital and necessary way forward to reduce risks for personnel in the wind industry working on site and to reduce environmental risks across Europe and Global.
This standard describes the requirements for the certification bodies.
The object of GWO is to support an injury-free work environment for construction and operation of wind farms on- and offshore.
To support this GWO has developed a standard for basic safety training to provide personal working at the wind farms with sufficient knowledge to obtain this target. GWO will continue to develop and maintain basic safety training in the industry.
The Basic Safety Training standard includes an educational block consisting of:
Prior to entering the training course, the trainee has to hold a valid medical certificate, like e.g.UK OOA, G41, Seaman Medicals or company specific medicals.
The standard is based on risk assessments and factual incidents/accidents statistics within the industry. The standard defines demands and approves setups for the industry training providers. The standard enables people that have been trained according to the specifications to have this training approved among all members of GWO.
The Basic Safety Training Standard describes the acceptable risk based level of training to be completed prior to entering a wind farm as a technician, engineer e.g. performing erection or maintenance of/within a wind turbine.
