GWO is commissioning a report to assess and forecast workforce needs in offshore wind
GWO is seeking an individual or organisation to conduct a qualitative analysis and draft a report on workforce training needs for offshore wind.
The report will review GWO training data within established offshore wind markets in Northern Europe, specifically how many workers received offshore-site-specific (GWO Sea Survival) training in those regions over a specified time period. This will be compared against data relating to offshore wind activity(existing & pipeline) in those markets.
Combining this data analysis with qualitative interviews, the report will forecast workforce needs in relation to the current pipeline of offshore wind in emerging markets like North America, Taiwan, and China.
The report will pose an answer to the following question:
How much training is required on a per MW basis to work on site, building North America’s/Taiwan/China’s pipeline of offshore wind and how can we address any workforce supply chain bottlenecks?
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.
