Global Wind Organisation

The Global Wind Organisation is a non-profit body founded by wind turbine manufacturers and owners which strives for an injury free work environment in the wind turbine industry, setting common international standards for safety training and emergency procedures.

What are GWO training standards?

GWO training standards outline requirements for training courses used by GWO members, who accept individuals’ GWO certification records in the Wind Industry Database (WINDA) as confirmation that the individual possesses the knowledge and skills to safely work in the offshore & onshore wind turbine industry.
