Landscape of a huge wind farm

Good practice guides for the wind sector

The wind energy has an important development not only internationally but also in Navarre. Nevertheless, this sector is new and without a large experience, where the Health & Safty Law is a challenge because of his special conditions. A high-technology, a skilled workforce and potential risks such as working at heights, high voltage installations, extreme weather conditions…
In this scenario, setting safety procedures, well-trained workers in rescue and emergency  are important milestones to achieve. For this purpose, those guides have been developed (only available in Spanish).

A potential dangerous workplace

No one could contest the fact that the main causes for the registered accidents have been:
– Lack of preventative skills during the work organisation (method).
– Execution of the work (practice).
– Monitoring and control of work (inspections).
