The certificate was presented at Siemens Gamesa’s Tianjin Training Centre, which is now authorized to provide safety training to other companies in China to help reduce risks for employees working in the wind-power industry.
BST has helped many companies in the wind industry to achieve higher levels of competence in safety training and emergency procedures.
A thorough assessment of a company’s approach to BST and how they respond to hazards can lead to certification, which provides a gateway for companies to become registered as a competent operator under the GWO’s membership scheme.
An assessment of potential hazards can include:
• Manual handling
• Fire awareness
• Working at heights
• Sea survival
The end goal is to verify that an organization can consistently deliver training for its own employees, or to other company’s employees, to the relevant GWO Standards that are set by its members. This approach helps to develop common industry training and best practice processes on health, safety, and risk reduction.
The certification process was performed by experts in LR’s management systems business and from its technical ‘know-how’ in low carbon power generation. The collective approach by LR and GWO are creating leaders in the renewable energy industry that provide cleaner, more reliable and safer energy to society, with lasting value for all stakeholders.
