This 1-day live online course provides high quality refresher training and information to Approved Wind Turbine Safety Rules (WTSR) Core Trainers in order for them to maintain their status as an Approved Trainer and ensure they continue to present the WTSR Core Course to others to the expected standard.

The WTSR are a model set of Safety Rules and procedures to help formalise a Safe System of Work (SSoW) to manage the significant risks associated with a wind turbine, both onshore and offshore. They have been developed by wind farm owners and operators for the purpose of achieving both general safety and safety from the system – a process that safeguards individuals from the mechanical plant and LV apparatus and the associated system-derived hazards.
