The awards are the world’s first of their kind, celebrating the impact of safety training to the wind energy workforce.
The 2022 GWO Safety & Training Awards Are Live!
The success of GWO’s community of over 450 training providers is always something to celebrate. Building on the initial Safety & Training Awards of 2021, in 2022 we’re looking to shine a light on the winning GWO training teams and individuals.
The GWO Safety & Training Awards help you promote the impact of your safety training to the wind energy workforce.
The Training Team of the Year category highlights how successful training providers large and small are focusing on creating great quality in learning in a safe, realistic and inclusive environment. This category also rewards organizations for their contribution to the community and industry as a whole.
The Young Achiever of the Year focuses on an individual (under 30 years) who is already demonstrating their potential.
Enter and demonstrate the impact of your training and the professionalism of your training team. As a bonus your business will:
- Be recognised by industry peers
- Easily demonstrate your commitment to best practices
- Feel pride in the value your teams create from their work
Entries for the second edition of GWO’s Safety & Training Awards open today until midnight on Friday 1st July 2022.
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.
