VIDEO: Standards improve worker safety, say Vestas and Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy

Globally leading wind turbine manufacturers endorse GWO standards for their workforce training needs.

"The safety of technicians has always been paramount for me," says Vestas' Paul Robbins "and to make sure they come home safely at the end of the day has always been my priority,"

Both Paul and his counterpart, SGRE's Karin Borg, know all too well the dangers wind turbine technicians face every day. In their daily work at two of the world's largest wind turbine manufacturers, and as members of Global Wind Organisation, Karin and Paul help reduce the risk of injury and create a safer environment for everyone working on site in our industry.

"The key benefit for us as an organisation being part of GWO," adds Karin, "is that we are sure our people out in the field are trained so that they can work safely. We will continue to provide this training to our employees and request it of our contractors anywhere in the world”
