Safety first

WTE’s priority is safety

Notwithstanding the high risk nature of this industry, the wind sector has an excellent safety record. WTE is fully committed to playing its part in maintaining these high standards and places the health & welfare of our staff above any other consideration. Unlike conventional installation, major operations carry a significantly higher risk profile; all static lifting occurs at height, in the nacelle, so there is no room for error. WTE employs robust operating procedures and detailed risk analysis to reduce the risk to acceptable levels and this has served us well.

“Putting Safety First”

The management in Wind Turbine Engineering Ltd recognise the high-risk nature of the works our staff are involved in on a daily basis; our primary concern is, therefore, the health, safety and wellbeing of our frontline staff.

Our personnel are encouraged to participate fully in toolbox talks and to report any safety observations that may affect themselves or their colleagues; near miss reporting is an important measure in this respect and, for this reason, we are implementing a new campaign called “Putting safety First”.

A key part of the campaign is acknowledging those staff members who actively report near misses and other general safety observations; at the end of each month, one employee will be presented with a voucher in recognition of his/her input and feedback to this initiative.

Experienced professionals and excellent equipment

Our strongest control measure is our personnel; we employ experienced professionals who are familiar with complex component exchanges across a range of turbine makes and models. This is well recognised across the wind sector and accounts for our broad client portfolio. Our staff receive wide ranging training from GWO to Crane Supervision, slinger/signaler, MEWP & telehandler and SSSTS training for our Lead Technicians
