Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
Amerisafe is pleased to announce their upgraded internal and external safety training specific to the wind industry. Started on February 1, 2012, Amerisafe has been actively working to improve their safety consultants' training for current and upcoming Wind projects.
Amerisafe Consulting & Safety Services (ACSS), a leader in Wind Energy Safety, have developed an earned reputation for providing expert Wind Energy Safety Management and Safety Training services for the Wind Energy industry.
Enhancements to the Wind Industry Orientation and Safety Training will include time "shadowing" a more senior consultant at a wind project.
“This gives the safety consultant hands on knowledge of the challenges that go along with constructing a wind project as well as insight to better train Wind Farm construction personnel on the hazards associated and then eliminate those hazards by preplanning work,” states David M. Harman, MS, CSP, Project Manager - Renewable Energy at Amerisafe Consulting & Safety Services.
Due to the wide geographic spread of wind projects throughout the US, ACSS believes it important for their safety consultants to gain a personal knowledge of the hazards associated with different locations.
Our upgraded Wind Safety Trainings include knowing and assessing how weather patterns can drastically affect the ground conditions where the turbines are erected and the importance of understanding that changing ground conditions can cause safety hazards for construction staff while constructing the wind turbines.
Once towers begin to be erected, ACSS continues the safety consultant’s training through hands-on experience in climb testing and emergency rescue practices to ensure that the consultant understands how to respond in an emergency situation.
In addition, Amerisafe will continue the training process by working closely with local emergency response personnel (police, fire, and EMS) to build on their knowledge of the wind industry and to properly train them for the specific hazards that may be encountered during a rescue type situation.
