New health and safety video online
From how to turn off a turbine and correctly attaching harnesses at heights to the safest way to transfer between vessels at sea, the freshly launched EWEA health and safety video contains essential guidelines for training new wind energy technicians.
“This video is intended to complement national health and safety guidelines and act as an induction for wind energy workers,” said Angeliki Koulouri, environment and planning analyst at EWEA. “We hope it will be used alongside other training materials for those joining the industry.”
“Wind energy has bought growth and jobs in many countries, but as a young industry it does not have the benefit of years of experience in health and safety – we hope to begin to address this”, she said.
