Personnel who will be working in the wind industry or related fields, and will carry out their duties in a wind turbine environment, usually in physical contact with a wind turbine or offshore wind structure.
Personnel that perform job functions that have been risk assessed by their employer or workplace, where training according to one or more modules of the BST standard may mitigate the identified risks.
No prerequisites are required to sit this course.
The assessment is taken during the course and is within the expected duration.
The aim of this module is to provide delegates with the upfront knowledge to administer safe and effective First Aid in the wind turbine industry/ WTG environment.
