This two-day training course (one of the four GWO BST modules) focuses on the access and egress conditions of a wind turbine environment. Following the Global Wind Organizations lesson plan for working at height, participants receive the necessary basic knowledge and skills through theory and practical training to use basic PPE and perform safe work at height and safe comprehensive basic rescue from height in a remote wind turbine environment. Training Compliance –OSHA 1926 & 1910 Regulations, ANSI Z359 Standards, GWO-BST Version 7.
This two-day training course (one of the four GWO BST modules) focuses on the access and egress conditions of a wind turbine environment. Following the Global Wind Organization's lesson plan, First Aid is conducted under ENSA’s Medic First Aid training curriculum, which is a widely accepted professional training platform incorporated into an ENSA training course under the America Safety & Health Institute. It is an enhancement of the prerequisite standard American or Canadian Red Cross certification (or other acceptable curriculums) and will prepare students to apply information to emergency situations that involve victim care at heights. Training Compliance – ISO 11.160 First Aid, OSHA 1910.151 Regulations, OSHA Guide 3317-06N 2006, HSI Medic First Aid, GWO-BST Version 7.
The aim of this four-hour training course (one of the four GWO BST modules) is to give participants the basic knowledge and skills to prevent fires, conduct initial and appropriate judgment 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 to be judged safe, to efficiently extinguish an initial fire using basic handheld fire equipment. Training Compliance – ISO 7165:2009, NFPA 10 Standards, GWO-BST Version 7.
The aim of this four-hour training course (one of the four GWO BST modules) is to give 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 and environment. Training Compliance – ISO 11228-3:2007, ISO 11228-2:2007, ISO 11228-1:2003, State OSHA Manual Handling Publications (various), NIOSH Publication 2007-131, GWO-BST Version 7.
This is a two-day training course designed to address the challenges of confined spaces within wind turbines. This course caters specifically to the confined space entry and rescue requirements for operating in both permit required and restricted spaces. When available, the training will cover the written specific confined space entry program, turbine specific hazard assessments, entry permits and safe work procedures. Prerequisite: WE1002 or equivalent. Training Compliance – OSHA 1910.146, OSHA 1926.1203, ANSI Z359
One-day training course (may be 10 hrs.) which is required for personnel who are expected to respond to incidences of serious traumatic injuries and medical emergencies at height that could possibly occur in wind turbines. It is designed around specific requirements and exposures particular to wind turbines and other work at height structures where working in confinement is a requirement. It affirms through practical assessment and problem-solving exercises, the capability of participants to safely assess an emergency, communicate the need for additional resources, provide needed care for life threatening conditions, and effectively manage victim movement to the ground when necessary. This is an enhancement of the standard American or Canadian Red Cross certification (or other acceptable curriculums) and will prepare students to apply information from previous first aid and CPR/AED training to emergency situations that involve victim care at heights. Prerequisite: WE1002 or equivalent. Training Compliance: American and Canadian Red Cross Standard (or equivalent), 40 CFR 1910.151, ANSI Z490.1-2009, ANSI Z359 Standards
This is a two-day training course designed around the specific requirements of the wind industry. This ENSA work and rescue at height training course delivers the foundation training for technicians who work at height within construction or general industry on wind turbines. During the course, students are taught the dangers of working at height on a wind turbine and provided with the essential underpinning knowledge required to work safely within this environment. Training covers use of personal protective equipment for working safely at height and fall rescue equipment for personal escape or casualty rescue requirements. Training also demonstrates appropriate decision making when addressing fall hazards through the adoption of preventative safety culture. ENSA Training within Fall Protection, Safe Access & Rescue for wind turbine technicians covers Type 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the four types of rescue defined by the Work at Height Safety Association. The training also develops team rescue strategies, procedures and protocol essential to implementation of a successful rescue. Training Compliance – OSHA 1926 Subpart M & 1910 Subpart D Regulations, ANSI Z359 Standards, GWO-BST Version 7.
