Ensuring a safe and renewable future

Safety matters. That is why GWO was created in 2012, as a non-profit organisation formed by the largest wind turbine manufacturers and owners. Together, they introduced standards such as Basic Safety Training (BST) to ensure a baseline of competence in the industry. There should be no doubt that the standards GWO has introduced since its foundation have met the challenge to produce a framework for training that is specific to a wind energy environment. This has been confirmed by the rapidly growing network of training providers around the world, certified according to GWO Requirements. A network that is also providing affordable training to match the needs of the wind energy sector.
