– 4 module –

The GWO Basic Safety Training (Global Wind Organization) is for people working in the wind energy industry. This GWO Basic Safety Training is a training session where the participant becomes familiar with the risks and hazards of working in the wind industry.

During the GWO Basic Safety Training, the participant not only learns to recognize hazards and what to do in an emergency, but also develops the skills needed to provide first aid, evacuate a wind turbine and fight against small fires.
