Manual Handling guidance for the offshore wind farm industry
G+ represents member companies from across Europe and Scandinavia, including UK, Norway, Germany and France. Whilst there are common manual handling risks and hazards present in the offshore industry, such as working in confined spaces, there are lots of unique risks and hazards too. As a result, G+ member companies identified the requirement for developing a comprehensive set of guidance for use within the offshore wind industry. We will develop guidance on manual handling to address the specific risks and needs of the offshore wind farm industry. This includes a range of activities to ensure that the tasks and risks specific to the offshore wind industry are suitably covered within the guidance, from reviewing existing documentation, incident data, and various site visits to offshore wind farms.
