The Confined Space Wind Awareness course is recommended for persons conducting work around confined space environments and who need to work at height inside a wind turbine.
SYNOPSIS OF COURSE:
Working in confined spaces within the wind industry presents unique challenges that require close adherence to safe confined space/enclosed space entry procedures and practices. This awareness training program focuses on understanding and recognizing confined/enclosed spaces within wind turbines. This training is intended to introduce the delegate to confined space risks, and hazards, understand the responsibilities and procedures involved when working on wind turbines. The delegate must carry a certificate of training in Safe Access & Rescue training for wind energy.
