The Global Wind Organisation (GWO) is an association of Wind Turbine owners and manufacturers with the aim of supporting an injury-free work environment in the wind industry. The objective of the GWO training is to develop common industry training and best practise standards for health and safety as a vital and necessary way to reducing risks for personnel in the wind industry working on site and to reducing environmental risks across Europe and the Globe.
The GWO Basic Safety Training courses were developed in response to demand for recognised safety training within the offshore wind industry.
The Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA International) includes within its membership operating companies who employ technicians who have learned their skills from the training companies of the Association. Unlike many trade associations it is not dominated, and therefore influenced, by manufacturers from its business sector. The teaching of the IRATA syllabus enables rope access technicians to progress through three levels of proficiency, with certification issued at each level. The IRATA technician carries a card that is recognised and admired around the world for its importance and value.
