October 4th promises to be a great evening recognising the best that the GWO network has to offer in wind safety and training, save the date!
Today, GWO officially announces the second edition of the Safety and Training Awards programme following the success of the inaugural event last year.
The updated award categories and criteria will be announced later this year following a review process, considering successes and learnings from the first edition. The awards will spotlight excellence from instructors and teams from GWO certified training providers from around the globe. Submissions will be reviewed by a judging panel of esteemed experts from the field of wind industry safety and training.
Ralph Savage, Director, Global Development & Stakeholder Relations at GWO says:
“The great thing about the GWO Safety & Training Awards is that we get a chance to celebrate the individuals and teams from around the world that do such great work – the ones who go above and beyond. We also get the chance to meet these teams face-to-face and congratulate them on their role in promoting safety training quality”
