Basic Safety Training Standard Earn certificates from (BST) Basic Safety Training Standart for those working in wind turbine environments.Basic Safety Training Standard (BST) is the foundation training for all professionals working or planning to work on wind turbines onshore or offshore. BST standard The BST standard clearly defines the three criteria by which the participant will be assessed during the exam, these are knowledge, skills and abilities, which in turn are divided into three levels of competence: basic, intermediate and advanced. These levels are also assessed in the exam. The three levels of competence allow the employer to assess the employee's skills and place him or her in an appropriate position. At primary level the participant is able to repeat the knowledge as it was imparted to him, repeat the actions of the instructor and follow simple, elementary rules; At intermediate level the participant is able to explain his/her actions, choose the right equipment for the job, act independently and proactively, while remaining within average limits; At advanced level the participant fully understands the work process, can assess risks, adapts to changing working conditions and is willing to take responsibility for his/her colleague; Furthermore, the standard strictly defines the topics in which the participant should acquire knowledge and the minimum time required to fully master each specific topic. Training GWO BST develops in participants the ability to provide support and care for themselves and others working in the Wind Power industry. The training provides knowledge and skills in first aid, working at height, manual handling, fire protection, offshore survival. After taking the course, the trainee will have acquired knowledge in: the basics of evacuation, life and health rescue and first aid for victims. GWO's basic safety training is divided into the following six modules: First Aid The aim of the BST first aid module is to enable participants, through theoretical and practical training, to recognise the signs and symptoms of life-threatening situations and to administer safe and effective first aid in the wind turbine industry / wind turbine environment in order to save lives and prevent further injury until the casualty is transferred to a higher level of care. Manual Handling The aim of this module is to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injuries for wind technicians in the wind industry and to enable participants to perform tasks and activities in the safest possible way when working in a wind turbine environment. The instructor should be aware that this module allows first-time and refresher participants to take part in the same activities. The training should therefore include knowledge sharing by more experienced participants. Fire Awareness The aim of this module is to educate participants on how to prevent fires, make good judgements when assessing a fire, manage the evacuation of personnel and make sure everyone is safely evacuated, in the event of an uncontrollable fire. If the incident is deemed safe, participants should be able to successfully extinguish the first fire using basic hand-held firefighting equipment. Working at Heights The aim of this module is to enable participants, through theoretical and practical training, to use basic personal protective equipment, work safely at height and perform complex basic rescue operations at height in a remote wind turbine environment. Working at Heights & Manual Handling The aim of this module is to enable participants, through theoretical and practical training, to use basic personal protective equipment, to work safely at height and to perform complex basic rescue operations at height in a wind turbine environment. In addition, this module aims to encourage correct manual handling habits and ergonomics and enable participants to perform manual handling tasks in a safe manner. Note: The BST, Working at Height and Manual Handling is a combined module that includes the lessons and elements of both the BST Working at Height module and the BST Manual Handling module and is designed to be completed over two days. The combined BST Working at Height and Manual Handling module can be delivered instead of the two stand-alone modules, and if the combined course is delivered, participants will receive two training documents: one on working at height and one on manual handling. Sea Survival The aim of this module is, through theoretical and practical training, to provide participants with the skills to act safely and responsibly and take correct preventive action in all aspects of offshore operations, from shore to installation vessel (or wind turbine) and vice versa. This includes both normal operations and emergency situations in the offshore wind environment. In addition to complying with regulations and legal standards, the training provider must continually ensure that training materials are kept up to date and in line with industry guidelines, in particular G+: Working at Height in the Offshore Wind Industry and Safe Management of Small Service Vessels Used in the Offshore Wind Industry.
