GWO Blade Repair
Upon completion of the GWO Blade Repair Standard (BR), participants will be aware of the risks and hazards encountered when working with blade inspection and repair within the wind industry. Furthermore, they will be able to control and mitigate those risks and hazards. The training will also equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to appropriately respond in the event of a hazardous situation and to increase their safety through proper use of personal protective equipment, emergency equipment, procedures and safe craftsmanship.
Training in accordance with this standard will:
- enable participants to support and care for themselves and others working in the wind industry by possessing the knowledge and skills of composite inspection and repair work
- be able to work safely with composite materials while conducting inspection and basic blade repair procedures
- supporting an overall improvement of the safety for personnel with job functions focussing on composite repair work and inspection in the wind industry
Personnel who will be working in the wind industry, specifically in relation to composite inspection and repair work and personnel that perform job functions that are defined as functions where composite work training, according to this standard, may mitigate some of the identified hazards and risks.
The blade repair training is an enduring qualification and therefore a validity period does not apply to this training. This assumes that the participants are actively working with composite inspection and repair.
