Renewable Energy Courses – GWO

The Global Wind Organisation (GWO) is an association of Wind Turbine owners and manufacturers with the aim of supporting an injury free work environment in the wind industry. In response to the demand for recognisable Basic Safety Training (BST) in the industry the members of the GWO have developed a safety standard. The standard ensures that the work of any certified Training Provider is competent and proficient. To obtain GWO approval, organisations are subject to an in-depth audit process performed by an accredited Certification Body.

Fire and Safety Australia is an approved provider of the Basic Safety Training (BST) package within Australasia. The objective of GWO is to enable a common, industry-wide work practice that aims to reduce any safety and health issues for personnel working on site. Any holder of a GWO certificate is considered competent and knowledgeable within Basic Safety in the wind industry. The members of GWO accept any holder of this certificate as possessing the required knowledge to stop an unsafe work situation.

GWO has developed a Standard Package for Basic Safety Training. The training includes the following courses: First Aid, Manual Handling, Working at Heights and Fire Awareness.
