Wind power training providers in Brazil, Argentina and Chile are pioneering the use of globally recognised safety training standards, and have become the fastest growing regions in the world for Global Wind Organisation safety and technical training.
The news emerged as GWO published its Annual Report 2019 - Safety Without Borders, which shows how companies across South America more than doubled the amount of courses they have delivered to workers, helping create a safer and more productive workforce.
