Featuring an exciting mix of live training demonstrations from GWO exhibition partner Tesicnor, debates with industry leadership during the Health & Safety Programme, and activities for delegates to try out themselves, the Safety, Skills & Training Zone will help you think differently about the way we learn and keep our skills refreshed so everyone can work safely in a wind turbine environment.
