Achieve Your GWO Working at Height Accreditation

This GWO Work at Height training course has been designed to meet the basic training and competency requirements for all personnel working at height on wind turbines and within the renewables sector. As offshore renewable teams ascend and descend both within the internal and on the external structure of a wind turbine on a frequent basis, working at height can be very much part of their normal routine.

Any work undertaken at height carries a certain element of risk. Therefore, as employers or employees, we have a duty of care to ensure all the adequate precautions have been put in place for any tasks that need to be completed at height and that the work is undertaken by personnel, who can clearly display the confidence, competencies and knowledge to complete these tasks in a safe and controlled manner.

Our Working at Height course will be delivered in accordance with GWO trade association Working at Height & rescue training standards.
