"Influencing Safety" #1 reason to get involved
A survey of GWO stakeholders has found a majority believe standards like the BST are 'improving worker safety'.
We asked a broad selection of stakeholders including committee members, training providers, auditors and technicians, what they think about GWO and today publish the GWO Stakeholder Survey 2018.
Key findings of the report include:
"GWO could not function without its stakeholders," said Jakob Lau Holst, CEO of Global Wind Organisation. "In 2017-2018, 130 people contributed directly to the development of GWO standards, training criteria, the GWO China Committee, WINDA and the expansion of our global training provider network. I would like to thank every one of them for their continuing contributions. People give up huge amounts of time and resources because they believe, like we do in creating a safer and more productive workforce for wind power."
The GWO 2019 work plan includes several new and enhanced training standards. All are the result of close collaboration between 16 globally leading wind energy companies who are the industry's largest employers.
Analysis shows up to an 80% commonality between GWO members' existing blade repair training programmes in terms of basic safety and skills.
Global Wind Organisation is looking for a new team member to join our Secretariat in Copenhagen as Training Project Manager. If you are ready to take the next step and contribute your experience of project management in training development, apply before 14th December 2018.
From April 2019, certification bodies must document one of three ways their auditors are qualified to certify a GWO training site or course.
GWO training providers opened 21 new locations between July and September 2018.
