In accordance with GWO First Aid training through analytical and practical training, Basic Safety Training participants will learn how to safely administer effective first aid while in the wind turbine generator (WTG) or industry environment. Skills acquired will include the ability to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use of an automated external defibrillator (AED).
Participants will be able to demonstrate understanding, clarity, and competence as related to delivering first aid effectively and in accordance with: the legislative requirements for their specific geographic location, the American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines, and the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) hereunder the European Resuscitation Council (ERC).
First Aid | Student understanding includes the demonstrated ability to:
Correctly use the Secondary Survey
Correctly use first-aid equipment when administering first aid
Identify and explain normal bodily function, normal indications and presentation, and symptoms of both serious and minor bodily illness and injury
Understand and properly execute the correct sequence and progression of emergency management stages in a WTG environment
Properly use and implement lifesaving first aid using the Primary Survey “C” A-B-C and Automatic External Defibrillator (AED)
This two-day training course (one of the four GWO BST modules) focuses on the access and egress
conditions of a wind turbine environment.
Following the Global Wind Organization's lesson plan, First Aid is conducted under ENSA’s Medic First
Aid training curriculum, which is a widely accepted professional training platform incorporated into an
ENSA training course under the America Safety & Health Institute. It is an enhancement of the
prerequisite standard American or Canadian Red Cross certification (or other acceptable curriculums)
and will prepare students to apply information to emergency situations that involve victim care at
