The Blade Repair working group completed this final draft five weeks ahead of schedule.
The GWO Blade Repair Standard has been published in draft. Training providers can review the draft and feed back comments to the working group by emailing GWO.
Certification can also be sought using the draft version of the standard. Version 1 will be launched on 1st April 2019.
The Blade Repair working group completed this final draft five weeks ahead of schedule, to allow training providers an early view of the learning objectives contained in the standard.
Requiring 10 days’ instruction, it represents an industry approved curriculum to train technicians up to a minimum standard of skills in safety and craftsmanship.
Jakob Kristensen, SGRE Global Competency Manager, Organizational change, Product Management, Strategic Analysis, Execution has led the GWO Blade Repair Working Group.
He explains: "Delegates will after completing the course, have a foundation of skills to complete repairs to damage on the blade surface, trailing edge, leading edge, sandwich panel and bond line.”
Material changes will not be made to the standard before implementation.
However, additional guidelines for implementation will be published alongside the launch and training providers are encouraged to send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
