The GWO Slinger Signaller standard working group is making progress
The GWO Slinger Signaller Working Group met at Equinor in Great Yarmouth during January to continue progress with the new training standard.
A GWO risk assessment for slinger signaling has been completed to produce a set of learning objectives, which in turn will be analyzed using a difficulty/importance/frequency (DIF) tool.
The group is on schedule and a number of key points were approved at the UK meeting as follows
The working group is now focusing on ensuring that as much as possible of the training will be practical exercises in order to support an optimum learning retention rate
The next Working Group meeting will be in Copenhagen on 11th March
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.
