The U.S. wind industry strongly values the wind energy workforce—our success hinges on their success. Because of our workforce commitment, safety and health training and awareness are core values at AWEA.
Our Environmental, Health, and Safety Committee safety awareness campaigns are at the forefront of AWEA’s priorities. Every October is Safety Month, focusing on key areas to help keep your employees healthy and safe.
This year’s October safety campaign, Stop the Shock, focuses on electrical safety. Its goal is to provide safe work environments by reducing exposure to major electrical hazards during the construction and operation of wind farms. Campaign materials include support materials for safety training, poster, hard hat sticker, and a webinar.
