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 provides delegates with an overall understanding of fire safety in wind turbine environments. You will learn about relevant health and safety legislation, theory on the nature of fire and how it spreads, along with practical guidance on fire prevention and firefighting equipment.
