First Aid Training

BookLast booked 25 minutes ago

The GWO First Aid (Global Wind Organisation) course is intended for everyone working in the wind industry. With the help of the GWO First Aid course, the delegate will specifically learn what kind of injuries they might sustain and how they can provide themselves and colleagues with first aid. Knowing the functions of the human body is essential and can possibly save lives.

During this GWO First Aid course, we will focus on limited access and entrances and exits in a wind turbine. In this First Aid course, both theoretical and practical aspects will be discussed. In the theoretical part everything about the human body will be discussed and you will also learn how to proceed in an emergency, for instance when you need to perform life saving first aid. In the practical part of the GWO First Aid course, all practices will be demonstrated to allow the delegate to get acquainted with this. This way, you can administer safe first aid if needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is GWO?

GWO stands for ‘Global Wind Organisation’. It is a non-profit organisation and has provided the Basic Safety Training standards for the wind industry since 2012.

What is the window to join a GWO refresher?

To maintain the original certification date, a certificate or training record can be renewed up to two months prior to expiry. It is still possible to join a refresher course outside of the two months of expiry. In this case, the certificate must carry the new date of certification. A participant is only allowed to attend a refresher course in the specific training module prior to the date of expiry on the current certificate or training records. The validity period is automatically calculated in WINDA by entering the course completion date.

What does the GWO First Aid course consist of?

Throughout this course, the delegate will be taught about the dangers of working in a windturbine, what this means for the safety and potential injury of someone working in this environment, how to recognise wounds and disease and how they can be treated, how to provide First Aid in life-threatening situations and much more. The GWO First Aid Course is also part of the GWO Basic Safety Training Course.

What does WINDA stand for?

WINDA is the name of the Global Wind Industry Training Records Database. It maintains data on the certification status of GWO Certified Training Providers as well as the status of delegates that have attended courses. The delegate is required to create an account for WINDA, as a sticker and registration are added in WINDA upon succesful completion of a course. No certificate is provided.

Click here to create an account in WINDA. Upon succesful registration, the user receives a WINDA ID. The WINDA ID is required for us to add the GWO Course to the account of a delegate, including the Basic Training Course.
