RUK & GWO Joint Approval

A First For UK Work At Height Specialist

heightec is pleased to announce that following a recent SGS RUK audit, they now have joint approval from the RenewableUK (RUK) and Global Wind Organisation (GWO) for the delivery of work at height safety training.

heightec, a leading UK provider of RUK work at height and rescue training for wind turbines, is now the first specialist training provider able to offer joint certification for both awarding bodies.

Wind turbine personnel who require height safety training to work onshore and offshore can now attend a single course at heightec and comply with both standards. “This offers a significant cost and time saving benefit to our customers. We can now train personnel to a recognised industry standard and issue joint RUK and GWO certification that will be accepted by the major wind turbine operators worldwide.” said Chris Ware, Training Manager at heightec.

heightec has a national network of purposed built Height Safety Centres across the UK, with training centres in Aberdeen, Birmingham, Kendal and London. The recent addition of a new 18m tower to their Aberdeen Height Safety Centre means the joint certification training course is now available to customers the length and breadth of the country, making wind turbine height safety certification easily accessible.
