Training providers, employers and delegates can now choose between the combined course, or individual modules
THE NEXT version of Basic Safety Training will be published on 1 October, including a new combined Working at Height and Manual Handling Module.
The new module has a two day duration and has been developed in cooperation with members and the support of training providers throughout 2019. Key changes include the removal of one rescue exercise (unconscious casualty inside of ladder) and the introduction of detailed pre-use equipment inspections plus a requirement to cover more than one product during the training.
Alex Booker, Training Development Manager at Global Wind Organisation led the working group. He explained: “This has been an extremely valuable exercise and has allowed us to refine these modules so the core learning objectives are delivered in 2 days, rather than 2 ½. We were particularly happy to have had the opportunity to manage this working group with the support of our North American stakeholders including two pilot training tests where combined WaH and MH was successfully completed in July and August.”
The change means that training providers, employers and delegates can now choose between taking the combined course, or individual modules. The combined course will continue to require both WaH and MH records are uploaded into WINDA.
More details on the revised standard will be available following launch on 1st October. Sign up for our webinar on 3rd October.

Learning objectives in GWO standards are focused in the domains of "knowledge" and "skill". How often you refresh your training to maintain that knowledge and skill depends on a huge variety of factors.
