Target group
Personnel who will be working in the wind industry or related fields and will have their duties in a wind turbine environment. Personnel that may need or is selected by their employer to perform advanced rescue or lead an advanced rescue operation, where training according to one or more modules of the GWO Advanced Rescue Training may mitigate the identified risks.
Objectives of the course
The aim of this module is to enable the participants to perform injured person rescue operations in a WTG nacelle, tower, and basement, by using industry standard rescue equipment, methods, and techniques, exceeding those of GWO work at height.

The Nacelle, Tower and Basement Rescue incl. Single Rescue module shall ensure that the course participants are able to:

1) Perform:
  • rescue operations using the casualties personal fall protection on the injured;
  • rescue operations in a WTG nacelle, tower and basement using a hand held lamp;
  • transportation of an injured person horizontally over the length of the turbine;
  • transportation of an injured person to a higher platform using rescue up techniques and equipment (both manual and power-driven).

2) Apply clear communication and guidance to other emergency responders (e.g. vessel or ambulance crew) including coordinating the handover of an injured person (Skills, intermediate level)

The participants shall:
1) acknowledge the benefits of having a coordinator in a rescue team, and the responsibility that comes with it;
2) take part in discussing which advanced rescue preparations and emergency & communication procedures apply in their own organisation;
3) Commit to demonstrating a pro-active approach and role model behaviour;
4) Apply rescue methods and techniques in performing descending and ascending single rescuer rescue operations, from a WTG nacelle, tower and basement using a rescue stretcher and transfer board, manually operated and power-driven lowering/raising rescue system (rescue device and pulley system or similar), and other rescue equipment relevant to the participants.
