28.11.2017 Training for Safety side event at WindEurope 2017

On November 28, 2017, GWO will hosted a side event at the WindEurope 2017 Conference and Exhibition in Amsterdam.
 
As an increasing number of organisations are looking to standardize their safety training, the aim of the side event was to provide a forum for improving the current GWO standards on safety training. Key topics included a session on lessons learned with a focus on incidents and the principles behind the compliance process. Other topics that were discussed were upcoming safety training standards as well as the future of GWO as an organization.

The event ended with an informal networking opportunity and the chance for Training Providers to meet each other.
