Technicians will develop an understanding and awareness of the associated health and safety issues when working on the installation phase of a project
A new Installation module has been developed and added to the Basic Technical Training standard as an addition to the Mechanical module.
The BTT Installation Module is designed to provide technicians with an understanding and awareness of the associated health and safety issues when working on the installation phase of a project. Delegates will develop their knowledge of how to store and handlee quipment, avoid dropped object incidents and work safely during lifting operations as well as usage of power/hydraulic tools while being supervised by an experienced technician.
The Installation module is not part of the recommended trio of BTT core technical modules, and it is up to the duty holder/employer to decide if this training is required. However, in order to attend the BTT Installation module, delegates must first be certified in the BTT Mechanical module.

October 4th will be a special day as our community of safety and training in wind energy gathers in person for an all-new event in Copenhagen.
Throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic, the GWO Audit & Compliance committee has issued advisory notes communicating agreed advice, guidance and exemptions from our regular governance (requirements and standards).
Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have signed a two-year partnership agreement to highlight the importance of safety, training and job creation to power wind energy development and the global energy transition. The wind energy industry is a major opportunity for countries to create high-skilled, local jobs to boost economic growth and reach their Paris Agreement goals.
The taxonomy establishes a transparent and coherent framework to describe safety training characteristics, allowing for a better understanding of “what good training looks like”.
The modules are reviewed in response to feedback from GWO members and 2020 workplace data from G+ which places manual handling incidents in the top three most reported injury processes.
