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.
This course will provide you with an awareness of the issues associated with dropped objects in wind turbine environments. You will learn about the hazards, risks, and injuries as well as some of the controls that are put in place to enable safe working.
