"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 leadership of a new Executive Committee (ExCo) of Global Wind Organisation has today been formed. The committee oversees all work carried out by the Secretariat.
GWO hosted a successful two day conference and demonstration programme, attended by 100s of guests
Existing versions of training standards will continue to be available for a period of three months. Previous criteria versions will be valid until 1 October 2019.
ILO World Safety Day 2019 is an opportunity to explain how globally recognised safety training standards raise the bar for everyone.
On 2nd April, GWO's training standards and audit & compliance specialists will be available to take questions and help with any problems.
