Course Benefits

GWO Advanced Rescue Hub Rescue 1 | HFR Solutions delivers the Advanced Rescue Hub Rescue (HSIBR)The GWO Advanced Rescue Hub, Spinner & Blade Rescue form part of the overall range of advanced rescue standards recently developed by the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) in-order to train teams in advanced rescue scenarios within an offshore environment.

This certified training program aims to provide a team of delegates with the competency to perform various rescue operations from the hub, spinner and inside the blade of a wind turbine. This will be achieved by using industry-standard and recognised rescue equipment, techniques and methods and will exceed the standards of the GWO Working at Height accreditation.

Your team of technicians will receive the following course benefits;

  • Recognised GWO standard
  • Display competency to rescue a colleague from the blade, spinner and hub within a wind turbine
  • Able to display advanced rescue capabilities from a high-risk working environment
  • Display competency in the use of equipment in the rescue scenario outside the norm (i.e. creation of suspended aerial rope to safely and effectively transfer the casualty from the spinner to nacelle) 

Factors to be considered

Factors such as those highlighted below affect and impact your offshore teams working practices and ability to deliver; 

  • Your team will be working in a remote location and require advanced rescue skills
  • High-risk operating environments
  • Increased response time from the emergency services
  • Your team will need to possess increased skills and levels of competency
  • Little or limited help within this operational environment
