About the Safety & Training Forum & awards

Building A Community of Safety & Training

October 4th 2022 was a special day for our community of safety and training in wind energy when we gathered in person for an all-new event in Copenhagen.

About the Forum

GWO members from the world’s largest manufacturers and owner operators joined in person alongside training providers, certification bodies, instructors, and auditors for a day of inspiration, industry insight, networking, and dialogue...

Attendees came to meet potential partners, former colleagues and training purchasers. Coming from across the globe attendees included representatives from: RWE, Vestas, GE, Coria, Vattenfall, Ørsted, Nordex, Equinor,  Siemens Gamesa as well as more GWO certified training providers.

About the Awards

The GWO Safety & Training Awards were created to shine a light on the teams of instructors and support staff who make safety in wind possible.  The GWO Safety & Training Awards is the world’s first program of its kind recognizing the skills and impact of training providers and instructors keeping the wind energy workforce safe on site   

The success of GWO’s community of over 450 training providers is always something to celebrate. Building on the initial Safety & Training Awards of 2021, in 2022 we’re looking to shine a light on the winning GWO training teams and individuals. Read here about the winners of the 2022 edition.

What to expect

Lisa Mallon, Global Executive Leader at GE Renewable Energy Onshore Wind and Chair of the Global Wind Organisation Executive Committee explained:

"We have combined this event into a single day with the GWO Safety & Training Awards 2022, to remind our community how important they are to creating a safe working environment in wind and that good instructors are the most important part of that mission."
