GWO Manual Handling
The aim of this Module is to encourage positive Manual Handling behavior and train delegates ability to perform Manual Handling tasks in a safe manner in the wind turbine industry/environment. The training is designed to improve and refresh Delegates’ awareness through both theoretical knowledge and practical training. The main focus is on practicing correct techniques.
GWO First Aid
The aim of this BST Module is to administer safe and effective First Aid in the wind turbine industry/ WTG environment, in accordance with GWO First Aid training through theoretical and practical training. As such, the course meets the requirements for new employees and the handling of emergency situations in the wind turbine industry.
GWO Fire awareness
The aim of this course is to give the participants the basic knowledge and skills through theoretical and practical training to prevent fires, conduct initial and appropriate judgement when evaluating a fire, manage evacuation of personnel to ensure all are safely evacuated and accounted for in the event of an unmanageable fire and, if it is judged to be safe, to efficiently extinguish an initial fire by using basic hand held firefighting equipment.
