Share your GWO stories on World Safety Day

ILO World Safety Day 2019 is an opportunity to explain how globally recognised safety training standards raise the bar for everyone.

International Labor Organisation celebrates its centenary this year

In seven short years, over 300 GWO certified training providers have opened their doors in 40 different countries around the world.

Using global standards as their benchmark, these companies have taught hundreds of thousands of people in one of the world's most dangerous professions, how to stay safe at work.

Today, GWO Standards are established as the benchmark for safety in wind energy.

Now, as we approach Annual World Safety Day on 28th April 2019, GWO is looking for ways to help tell the safety story for wind energy and ensure that everyone working in the industry is given the same opportunity to receive a basic, minimum standard of training, wherever they are.

Send us your stories

We are looking for:

  • Safety stories involving people, lives and successes
  • 'Then and now' - what GWO safety training has helped people achieve in their lives and careers

Things to consider:

  • Is it ok to share the story? Have you asked the person involved?
  • Please do not send photos or personal information without the owner's written consent
  • All activities will be carried out in accordance with GWO's data protection policy.
