A new training centre in China has been highlighted by auditors for its quality.
The newly certified BST Sea Survival course at JiangSu Goldwind Science & Technology Co has been praised by auditors for its quality, resources and highly motivated team.
Ready to launch this January, the Sea Survival course expects strong demand as the use of GWO standard training continues its rapid adoption in the China region.
Ma Chunling, Supervisor of Offshore Wind Training Center Goldwind Science & Technology Co. LTD and member of the GWO Training Committee, (pictured left) explained: "In the future, the Sea Survival course will help to strengthen the training standards for offshore wind power safety at home and abroad, and enhance the personnel safety skills of the Goldwind technology industry chain and wind power industry.
"We are very proud to have received praise from the lead auditor who delivered our certificate. It was confirmed the training centre has a high level of quality in its documentation, staff and physical resources. It was also noted that there is a very high level of motivation amongst the administrative and training staff.
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.
