The certification body you appoint to audit your site must appear on the GWO's approved list
We are today reminding training providers to remember these instructions when choosing a certification body to audit their site.
Unfortunately, some training providers have encountered delays in achieving their certification because they mistakenly appointed a certification body that had yet to document is conformity with the GWO Criteria for Certification Bodies.
"It is both the responsibility of training providers and certification bodies to ensure GWO Criteria are met," says Jakob Lau Holst, CEO of Global Wind Organisation.
You can always email us and provide details of the certification body you intend to use.
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.
