First Aid (GWO)
In case of casualties First Aid knowledge of proper procedures, use of available equipment and normal functions of the human body and symptoms of illness or injury is essential. In the First Aid module as part of the Basic Safety Training for wind industry RelyOnNutec will focus on the limited space and access and exit possibilities characteristic for wind turbines. Proper practical exercises are a major part of this course. The aim of this Module is to administer safe and effective First Aid in the wind turbine industry / WTG environment in accordance with GWO First Aid training through theoretical and practical training.
