Wind Industry

Today’s typical turbine tech has a strong foundation in mechanics and little experience in electrics. Although electrical troubleshooting only makes up a small portion of the maintenance tasks a wind turbine tech faces, it puts them at risk for severe injury, especially when they don’t have the proper training. Ensure your wind turbine techs are armed with the knowledge they need to safely work with electrical components — and your company is on the right side of OSHA law. Technical Skills Development Services can help.

WHY NFPA 70E/ARC FLASH TRAINING IS CRUCIAL FOR YOUR WIND TURBINE TECHNICIANS

While most wind turbine technicians have little electrical experience, they also face another challenge: The wind turbine equipment often comes from overseas and doesn’t meet U.S. safety standards. OSHA has noticed these challenges today’s wind turbine techs face. Now, OSHA places greater emphasis on electrical safety training for these specialized workers. Today’s companies must provide safety training in a classroom and/or on the job. It must be documented in accordance with accepted OSHA practices. Online training programs do not meet OSHA standards. If your company doesn’t provide adequate training for your wind turbine techs, you can be facing substantial financial penalties. Easily and quickly protect your employees and company with our NFPA 70E/Arc Flash Training for the Wind Turbine Technician course. We’ll ensure your company is compliant with OSHA’s stringent regulations.
