Boards of directors in the wind industry are taking an increasingly close look at the value that standardisation of basic safety training can offer.

In 2012 the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) released its first ‘basic safety training’ standard to ensure that ‘wind turbine specific’ safety training was available for technicians anywhere in the world, and that manufacturers, operators and sub-contractors could rely and validate the quality of this training to meet ever growing demand.

We’ve followed this with the ‘basic technical training standard’, and an expanding body of work aimed at helping the sector strive towards an injury-free working environment.
