Safety Technology, a safety equipment and training provider to the utility industry, is partnering with NaREC, to create a range of safety training and certification courses for the wind industry, at NaREC's facilities in Blyth, Northumberland..
Servicing and constructing wind turbine components in exposed conditions, at heights of over 100 metres, can be done safely, provided that engineers know the risks and how to avoid them. Safety Technology will offer a complete certification programme which will then allow trainees to work on any wind farm within Europe. Safety Technology will be making use of NaREC's range of engineering and testing facilities for wind technology development, creating a realistic, controlled environment for trainees to learn and practice. NaREC's operations site will be used for assessments and practice, for various procedures including fire training, ‘real-life' operations and escape practices.
