This 2-day face-to-face course provides high quality training and information to aspiring Wind Turbine Safety Rules (WTSR) Approved Core trainers on the WTSR Core Course content to enable them 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.

This course ensures that WTSR Approved Core Trainers have a full understanding of the WTSR Core Course and can deliver it to others to the correct standard. It allows discussion and explanation on key WTSR issues by looking at:

  • What the WTSR are
  • Policy, philosophy, principals, and general provision
  • Supporting procedures
  • Behavioural safety and the WTSR
  • Responsibilities of persons
  • Applying WTSR in the workplace

The following are a list of steps to take to become a WTSR Approved Core Trainer:

  • Successfully complete the WTSR Core Course
  • Ensure your sponsoring company has an appropriate level of membership:
    • SafetyOn Tier 1 membership
    • G+ Full or Associate membership
    • Training Provider membership (this is for those companies who do not qualify for either of the above memberships)
  • Ensure your your sponsoring company signs the WTSR Training Service Level Agreement (SLA)
