What is LT?

 

Lift Training (LU) is the GWO standard safety training in the use of lifts in wind turbines. LT is designed for wind farm wrokers that must work in WTG enviroments, especially if they must use lifts or elevators, both in onshore and offshore facilities.

The Lift Training certification consists, at the moment, of one module devoted to the standards of use of lifts in WTGs, the safety procedures to be followed before and after each use, as well as the hazards involved in using WTG lifts and how to prevent them.

It is expected that GWO will publish new modules of this standard in the near future.

By definition, the BST has improved the alignment and quality of safety training because we now have a standard that delivers a baseline of competence. As an owner/operator of wind turbines, we wouldn’t allow anyone to work on site without the certification.
