The BTT Installation Module will provide technicians with an understanding and awareness of the associated health and safety issues when working on the installation phase of a project.
A new module of the Basic Technical Training Standard, for installation work, was piloted this week at European Wind Academy in Poland.
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.
For example, delegates will develop their knowledge of how to store and handle equipment, 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.
“GWO will develop the standard to ensure transparency and a global alignment ensuring both employers and end clients are able to understand the experience and competency of technicians undertaking work for them,” said Haben Zekarias, Project Manager responsible for the module’s development.
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.
