PSE practice training
The practice training on “Personal Safety Equipment” is mandatory for all employees who work regularly or just once on wind turbines. Important safety precautions and the correct behavior in case of an emergency on wind turbines are learned and practiced.
These safety trainings must be completed and refreshed regularly and they always take place in small groups. And because almost all of our colleagues participate in these trainings we are regularly on wind turbines. So also last week.
Safety and rescue
After a short theory session in the morning about all kinds of safety-related rules and regulations on wind turbines, the rest of the day was very practical and daily working life-oriented. Also different belay devices were presented and explained, because there is not the same equipment at all wind turbines.
In addition to the hazards and their avoidance at high altitude we learned and trained the rescue and recovery of injured colleagues. The roping of a wind turbine requires some overcoming and a lot of know-how for the correct use of the various belay devices.
Training for all employees
Of course it is important that technicians and engineers received this security training and refresh their knowledge regularly, but it is not just about security. All fos4X employees, no matter what department and what project they belong, take part in this training because:
We are convinced to develop the best products and solutions for the wind industry it is essential that each developer, each service employee and each sales engineer knows about the daily work in a wind turbine and the problems of wind turbine operators!
says Dr. Lars Hoffmann, founder and CEO of fos4X.
For the participants of the training it is always an exciting, interesting and fun day on the wind turbine with a lot of information and also some wonderful views, such as here in Fröttmaning overlooking the Allianz Arena.
Our PSE practice trainings are always performed by the company „Hochsicher“, which we can highly recommend.
