Global Wind Organisation Certification

Thomson Bridge holds Global Wind Organisation (GWO) certification for the Basic Safety Training modules in First Aid, Fire Awareness, Manual Handling and Working at Heights. GWO Basic Safety Training (BST) is targeted at personnel who work in the wind industry, and will have their duties in a wind turbine environment, usually in physical contact with a wind turbine.

Background

The Global Wind Organisation (GWO) is a non-profit organisation of wind turbine owners and manufacturers.  The aim of the GWO is to strive for an injury free work environment in the wind turbine industry, through cooperation among the members, in setting common standards in safety training and emergency procedures.

The secretariat opened in 2014 and is hosted by the Danish Wind Industry Association.

In response to the demand for recognisable Basic Safety Training (BST) in the industry, the members of the GWO have developed a safety standard.  This standard ensures that the work of any certified Training Provider is competent and proficient. To obtain GWO approval, Training Providers are subject to an in-depth audit process performed by an accredited Certification
