The revised Basic Safety Training Sea Survival Module has been published today
The revised Basic Safety Training Sea Survival Module has been published today, with BST Version 11 arriving after lengthy consultation with training providers and members.
Almost half (46%) of the total number of training providers certified to train the module participated in the consultation and the resulting standard reflects this feedback process.
Jakob Bjørn Nielsen, Senior Training Advisor at Global Wind Organisation, explains: "There are a range of revisions to the standard including changes to the ratio between practical and theory-based training, updates to the module's delivery and new exercises. The duration of the training has reduced to a single day, from the previous 12 hours and the practical elements have increased to 82% of the total from 68% in version 10 of the standard."
October 4th will be a special day as our community of safety and training in wind energy gathers in person for an all-new event in Copenhagen.
Throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic, the GWO Audit & Compliance committee has issued advisory notes communicating agreed advice, guidance and exemptions from our regular governance (requirements and standards).
Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have signed a two-year partnership agreement to highlight the importance of safety, training and job creation to power wind energy development and the global energy transition. The wind energy industry is a major opportunity for countries to create high-skilled, local jobs to boost economic growth and reach their Paris Agreement goals.
The taxonomy establishes a transparent and coherent framework to describe safety training characteristics, allowing for a better understanding of “what good training looks like”.
The modules are reviewed in response to feedback from GWO members and 2020 workplace data from G+ which places manual handling incidents in the top three most reported injury processes.
