Fire Awareness (GWO)


To create a safer working environment, RelyOnNutec provides personnel working in the wind industry with basic knowledge and skills during a Fire Awareness course. This module of the Basic Safety Training applies to the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) standards and offers theoretical and practical training for personnel in the wind industry. The aims of this course are to give the participants the basic knowledge and skills through theoretical and practical training to prevent fires, conduct initial and appropriate judgement when evaluating a fire, manage evacuation of personnel to ensure all are safely evacuated and accounted for in the event of an unmanageable fire, and, if it is judged to be safe, to efficiently extinguish an initial fire by using basic hand held fire fighting equipment. 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.
