Safety first for Siemens Gamesa
Turbine giant first to secure GWO certification for training in China
Siemens Gamesa has become the first turbine manufacturer in China to be certified to provide Global Wind Organisation (GWO) safety training in the Asian country.
The company is now able to provide GWO basic safety training to other companies in China to help reduce risks for employees working in the wind industry.
Siemens Gamesa will offer the courses at its Tianjin training centre in north-east China.
Lloyd's Register carried out the certification, which included assessment of Siemens Gamesa's approach to achieving a safer work environment, monitoring potential hazards such as manual handling, fire awareness, working at heights and sea survival.
