Wind Harmony: seeking your views on the health and safety issues of the wind energy sector in the EU

The Wind Harmony project has just launched an online survey to seek your views on the key health and safety issues currently facing the European wind industry, and potential solutions to those issues. The project seeks to understand where harmonisation or alignment at European level could reduce complexity, risk and cost, improve industry performance and lay the foundations for global wind industry standards. More information on the project can be found at www.windharmony.eu.

The survey is open to everyone – including manufacturers, developers, operators, contractors (of all sizes), regulators, policy makers, national wind energy associations, researchers and technicians. Responses are anonymised and will feed directly into the next project workshop and inform the project’s final recommendations. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. The survey is also available in French, German and Spanish, and open until 2nd March 2020.

Access the survey

You can also register for the 3rd workshop of the ‘Wind Harmony’ study that will take place on Friday 13th March (Paris). This workshop will validate the topics for potential harmonisation of health and safety and identify possible interventions for each of these topics based on expected improvements, cost reduction and overall efficiency. Check the detailed agenda and register here before 3rd March 2020.
