Refresher Manual Handling (GWO)


Correct manual handling is very important when you have to handle goods many times a day and in a confined space. In the Manual Handling refresher module RelyOnNutec provides manual handling techniques to minimize the risks and contribute to a safer work environment in the wind industry. Main focus in the refresher training is to practice correct techniques.
The content of the course applies to the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) standard for the Manual Handling module as part of the Refresher Basic Safety Training for wind industry.

This BSTR Manual Handling module will improve and refresh delegates' awareness through theoretical and practical training to encourage positive manual handling behaviour and perform manual handling activities in a safe manner. The main focus of this BSTR is to practise the correct manual handling techniques.

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.
