GWO Fire Awareness / Fire Awareness Refresher

Introduction

GWO Fire Awareness is aimed at personnel who will be working in the wind industry or related fields and will have their duties in a wind turbine environment, usually in physical contact with a wind turbine or an offshore wind structure.

 

The BST Fire Awareness Refresher module cover the same content, duration and learning objectives as BST Fire Awareness. The course can consist of first time delegates and refresher delegates, in the same classroom.

Summary

The aim of GWO Fire Awareness is to give students the basic knowledge and skills to prevent fires, make appropriate judgement when evaluating a fire, manage evacuation of personnel and ensure all are safely accounted for in the event of an unmanageable fire. If the incident is judged to be safe enough, the delegates should be able to efficiently extinguish an initial fire by using basic hand held firefighting equipment.
