If you are a fresher in the wind turbine industry and wondering what exactly GWO First Aid (GWO FA) is, VIVABLAST is here to provide you with some information! Let’s break this term down piece by piece so we can understand the whole concept easier, shall we?
But first, what does GWO stand for? GWO is an acronym for “The Global Wind Organisation”, it represents training standards because, to work in the wind turbine industry, you must equip yourself with proper career knowledge and a GWO Certificate as it is mandatory for people working on and offshore. All for a safer and more productive workforce. GWO training courses here in VIVABLAST are divided into two main elements, which are commonly known as:
A GWO First Aid is part of the BST training, involved mainly in taking care of any health issues and any incidents that might occur while the employees are working to ensure safety and a better working environment.
As the name itself has suggested, the GWO First Aid course focuses mainly on providing the participants:
By the time you finish the whole BST First Aid Module, you will be able to work or act independently in identifying the crisis within the Environmental impact of wind power (WTG environment), checking up on the casualty’s condition, and carrying out life-saving first aid using advanced emergency equipment (with the help of telemedical consultation or rescue assistance, if needed) until the patient can be handed over to the next level of care. All knowledge is provided to meet the GWO standards through theoretical and practical courses.
In addition, you will also be awarded a GWO BST First Aid Certificate after completing the course. This certificate will be valid for the next 24 months so, before the expiration date, all delegates must undertake the course once again to remain certified.
While working in the wind industry either onshore or offshore, it is essential that you equip yourself with proper first aid knowledge not only to save yourself but also those around you because once a crisis or incident happens, you know for sure you are well-prepared for any situations coming your way.
