Feedback wanted: Draft of new requirements available for download and review
The new versions have been published in draft and can be downloaded below.
We want as much feedback from stakeholders as possible about the updated requirements. These documents will govern the certification bodies auditing GWO training providers, and the rules that must be followed to deliver GWO training in a compliant way.
If you have comments about the update, please take a moment to complete this short questionnaire. The deadline for responses is 1700 CEST on 6th March 2020.
The updated versions will be published on 1st April 2020. The current versions will remain valid for a period of six months before being withdrawn on 1st October 2020.
A number of key changes have been developed for the new versions. These are highlighted below:
GWO strongly advise training providers to follow World Health Organisation guidelines for prevention in schools, workplaces and institutions, as well as to follow recommendations from national health authorities
• Vestas’ Paul Robbins elected Chairman until 2022 • Executive Committee (ExCo) elected with mandate to establish GWO trained workforce beyond 200,000 people
The team has shifted to home working for the period 12th March-27th March (or until further notice)
Third party certification bodies are an essential element in the GWO governance framework. We reveal some data about which ones have certified the most.
Certification bodies are essential in the governance system of GWO Standards. Without them, training providers cannot deliver GWO training and worker safety is potentially at risk.
