Manual Handling (GWO)


By providing a course in Manual Handling techniques RelyOnNutec aims to minimize the risks and contribute to a safer work environment in the wind industry. Practical skills will be trained and demonstrated in a restricted area of movement. The content of the course applies to the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) standard for the Manual Handling module as part of the Basic Safety Training for wind industry.

The aims of this Module are to give the participants awareness through theoretical and practical training to encourage positive Manual Handling behavior and perform Manual Handling activities in a safe manner in the wind turbine industry/environment, in accordance with GWO Manual Handling.

WINDA is the global database which is used by the Global Wind Organisation (GWO). WINDA will make verification of training possible for training providers and employers. Delegates will have ownership of their own training records in WINDA.
Participants will no longer be issued with paper certificates. RelyOnNutec will upload a digital record of the GWO certificate in WINDA. If you are participating in a GWO training course you must register for a delegate profile in WINDA. After registration you will receive a WINDA ID. You need this WINDA ID to book the training. Without a WINDA ID we are not able to produce certificates.
