GWO Basic Safety Training has been held, October 5 to 9
It is getting rather cool in the morning and evening . GWO Basic Safety Training (BST) has been held, October 5 – October 9. It was second GWO BST training in our center for this year.
GWO BST (Global Wind Organization Basic Safety Training) is made for wind turbine technicians and personnel to acquire skills to respond in the event of emergency and to control and mitigate hazards within the wind industry .
This GWO BST consists of 4 modules, i.e., Manual Handling, Fire Awareness, Working at Heights and First Aid, excluding Sea Survival from 5 modules of full BST course.
I would like to introduce various practice briefly. First of all, Fire Awareness module on the first day.

Next, Working at Heights module on the 2nd and the 3rd day.
Basic techniques applied to working at heights and evacuation procedure.
The method of preventing suspension trauma and rescuing the victim
Day4 and Day5 were First Aid module.
Removal of foreign body in the airway and CPR
I would like to introduce one of the comments we had from the delegates.
“It was very fruitful training as I could understand that even if I know what to do in my head, it is required to ‘how I should act and respond’ in real situation. I could also realize the lack of knowledge, the importance of practice the skill and significance of repeated training. The training this time was basic lecture and practice, but the motivation for the training was strengthened as I could understand that the accident may happen under all circumstances at any time any place, and the repeated words by instructors ‘You are the one who have to react in an emergency, not others’ weigh on my soul.”
From NSTC: It’s our pleasure to hear that you could find our training informative for your work environment. The training was very fruitful with very constructive discussion during the lecture and active participation during the practical, although the training lasted for 5 days long. We, as a staff, also had much to learn throughout the training. Thank you very much for joining the training!
