Oil pipeline explosions, nuclear meltdowns and dangerous gas leaks – the wind energy sector may not make the headlines in the same way as other parts of the energy sector when it comes to accidents, but the industry is certainly not accident-immune and it is taking the risks seriously.
The third European Wind Energy Summit on Health and Safety will take place on Wednesday 12 March 2014 at the EWEA 2014 Annual Event in Barcelona. Hosted by the Spanish Wind Energy Association (AEE), this will be the occasion to share experiences and lessons learnt in wind energy safety with the ultimate goal of reducing the risks.
If you’re interested in learning the latest accident-prevention measures and training techniques, or maybe you’re looking to expand your operations into another European country and you’re wondering about the harmonisation of safety standards across Europe, then this summit is the place to be.
Together the industry can move towards keeping the risks of working at height, with potentially hazardous electrics, with super-sized turbine parts in transport and construction or in hostile marine environments to a minimum.
