If safety in offshore wind is your priority, enter our competition to win a complementary three day exhibition pass to WindEurope Offshore.
As host of the Safety, Skills and Training Zone at WindEurope Offshore 2019, GWO has today launched a competition giving you the opportunity to join us at Bella Centre Copenhagen.
The Safety, Skills and Training Zone is a mixed use area where guests will be treated to a programme of demonstrations, debate and thought leadership. Central to the schedule will be daily demonstrations of GWO training from Demonstration Partner, RelyOn Nutec, including an exhibition first: Sea Survival training in a specially constructed indoor pool.
Combining GWO training modules into an exciting timetable, RelyOn Nutec will provide a live look at various possibilities for delivering standardised training on site, all from inside the Copenhagen Bella Centre Exhibition Centre. We will also be joined by Zone Partners Maersk Training, who are providing support and content for a specially convened GWO training providers debate.
Over 100 community colleges teach wind turbine technician programs in North America. One GWO training provider, Safety Technology (STL) USA is moving quickly to offer a new pathway into work for college students.
EDF Renewables North America (EDFR) is the latest addition to the growing list of GWO training providers in the US market.
The next generation of wind turbine technicians were placed front and centre at GWO’s Safety & Training Forum, as training providers and employers debated the best approach to onboard thousands of new people.
Standard increases safety around supervised, infrequent WTG visitors.
Specialized safety training highlighted as a significant gap for offshore wind construction and O&M; More GWO Sea Survival training will be needed to safely deliver on the 30GW 2030 target; Companies will need to guide new technicians and rapidly deploy full-scope training for them to keep up with the hastening pace of construction activity.
Among the provisions for version 11 are: a definition of non-conformity, further provision related to GWO’s Auditor Qualification Training, clarification on the qualification process for GWO auditors, criteria for defining multi-site training providers as well as specific requirements for their certification such as the production of an internal audit plan.
