Brand new competition will be open for entries later in the year
GWO today announces plans to launch a new competition aimed at shining a light on the very best our network has to offer.
The inaugural GWO Safety and Training Awards will take place as part of the showpiece Safety, Skills and Training Zone hosted by GWO at the WindEurope Electric City event in Copenhagen on 27-29 April 2021.
The categories for entry will be announced later this year with awards that highlight the quality of instructors and their teams at GWO training providers around the world. In keeping with competitions of this nature, entrants will be required to submit their case for review by a specially selected panel of judges who will shortlist candidates according to an exacting criteria.
Jakob Lau Holst, CEO of Global Wind Organisation, explains: "We have decided to create the GWO Safety and Training Awards program to focus on quality in delivery of safety training. This first year, we will especially be zooming in on the work of instructors. They play a crucial role in in our industry's safety story. Good instructors are paramount to our mission to create an injury free working environment in wind. The GWO Safety and Training Awards will give us all a chance to reflect on what makes the difference between a good and a great instructor, and on the difference a great instructor or team can make in creating a safety culture in the wind industry.
"With the decision to hold the awards as a centrepiece of the Safety, Skills and Training Zone at WindEurope Electric City in Copenhagen next April, we're excited that our showcase event will have a new and exciting feature to bring stakeholders together."
Wind industry training providers from across the world will be putting their best foot forward as the GWO Safety & Training Awards 2024 get under way today.
