16 of the worlds’ largest wind turbine manufacturers and owners have re-affirmed their commitment in globally recognized minimum safety training standards for workers across the world. Global Wind Organisation (GWO), a non-profit owned by globally leading wind energy companies, has reported rapid rises in the numbers of people trained to its standards which align basic safety and technical training to a set of unified standards that are recognised around the world.

With 74,432 (+65%) people holding a valid certificate by the end of 2018, an estimated 5-10% of the global workforce in wind energy is now trained to GWO standards.

Eloy Jauregui, Director of Safety at Acciona Energia and Chairman of Global Wind Organisation, said: “Having 5-10% of the workforce trained to GWO standard is an achievement. But our challenge is just beginning. People working on wind turbines around the world are generally not trained to GWO standards and we believe that wherever possible, they should be. We will increase our efforts to engage globally and collaboratively; promote the adoption of safety standards and control the enabling governance around them so we can strive towards our mission of creating an injury free working environment in wind energy.”
