Working AT Height – Academy ™  are proud to introduce our Wind Turbine Generator control of hazardious energy course for your convenience.

Course Aim:  In this course delegates work around hazardous energies pose a high risk of injury to all workers working within the wind industry. One of the reasons for this is that hazardous energies are found in various forms within the wind turbine environment and within the environment of a wind.

Learning Outcome

  • Safety module is to enable the participants to act safely while working in the vicinity of hazardous energies in the wind industry and be able to perform assigned tasks safely.
  • Electrical Safety training module is to enable the participants to support and care for themselves and others while working with, and in the vicinity of, electricity in the wind industry and to perform assigned electrical work tasks safely and efficiently. Upon successful completion of Electrical Safety Module, the participants will be able to perform electrical work safely within the wind industry using electrical PPE, precautionary techniques, and electrical safety safe working practices to reduce the associated risks to the electrical hazards
  • Pressure safety module for Fluids will enable participants to manage the risks related to hazardous energies in the wind industry and act safely when in the vicinity of hazardous energies or when working on systems and equipment containing hazardous energies.
