About the Global Wind Organisation


Global Wind Organisation is a non-profit body founded and owned by its members - all of whom are globally leading wind turbine manufacturers and owners/operators. 

The members strive for an injury free work environment in the wind turbine industry, setting common international standards for safety training and emergency procedures.


GWO published the first version of the Basic Safety Training (BST) standard in 2012 in response to the demand for a recognisable standard in the wind turbine industry. 

GWO training standards describe the requirements for training courses that are recommended by members of GWO. By complying with GWO standards and criteria, certified training providers are considered competent and proficient.

Any individual with a GWO certificate in the Wind Industry Database (WINDA) is considered competent and knowledgeable according to the learning objectives of that standard. GWO members accept the certificate as confirmation the individual possesses the required knowledge and competences as described in the standard.



To obtain GWO approval, organisations are subject to an in-depth audit process performed by an accredited Certification Body.
