Upon completion of the GWO Basic Safety Training Refresher (BSTR) Standard participants will possess an awareness of the hazards encountered when working within the wind industry and how to control and mitigate these hazards. The BSTR will also equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to appropriately respond in the event of an emergency and to increase their safety through proper use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), emergency equipment and procedures.

The approved GWO Basic Safety Training Refresher (BSTR) refreshes, reviews and builds on participants existing skills and tools obtained during BST Module courses, which include Fire Awareness, First Aid, Working at Heights, and Manual Handling Modules.
