Ensuring a safe and renewable future - why we need to commit to the right training

In this report, GWO will underline the importance and relevance of GWO training standards. We also highlight why domain specific training is superior to training not designed for the wind industry.

Don't let the calm waters fool you. Transfer from crew transfer vessel to the base of a turbine is a high frequency, high risk activity. Only GWO Sea Survival trains workers to avoid injury when making this step.

This evidence-based argument, supported by a gap analysis with other training standards, will dispel the myth that the skills and the training in the wind sector should be the same as that for other industries.

Any delay in adopting GWO standards will cause harm to the industry.
