"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."
We will be shutting down WINDA for a complete reboot on Friday December 13 at 14:00. WINDA will be in read only mode through Sunday but may have stability issues due to the migration and may provide unexpected error notifications.
GWO has migrated WINDA from a Django/Python solution hosted on Amazon Web Services to a solution based on Microsoft Azure.
GWO members say the value created by WINDA for safety and workforce productivity far outweigh the costs of the system
The GWO Criteria for Training Providers and Certification Bodies provide the framework and governance system around which more than 350 training providers can operate.
Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have signed a partnership agreement to highlight the importance of safety, training and job creation to power wind energy development and the global energy transition.
