No outstanding issues were identified by following review of incident during BST Sea Survival practical lesson
On 7th November GWO wrote to training providers to inform them of a fatality which occurred during a BST Sea Survival practical session.
Public authorities assigned to the incident subsequently confirmed that death occurred by natural causes. The authorities took no further action to investigate and confirmed that no indication of the conditions which were identified as cause of death, existed in the deceased’s medical records.
The training provider conducted its own investigation and shared the findings with the GWO Audit & Compliance Committee.
The Committee has now concluded its review of the report provided on the incident and finds that it fully answers all aspects of the incident and that there are no outstanding issues requiring further resolution.
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.
