Why The Unisex Approach To PPE Doesn’t Work

Why The Unisex Approach To PPE Doesn’t Work

Despite more women than ever joining the construction and energy industries, it still remains that 71% of PPE is designed for men to wear / use. Because of this, fewer than 10% of women working in the energy sector and just 17% in construction wear / use PPE that was specifically designed for the female body.

Electrical Safety in Wind Turbines

Electrical Safety in Wind Turbines

Safety in and around a Wind Turbine Generator is exacerbated for the following reasons: 

  • The remoteness of most turbines to medical facilities means that any accident that may require hospitalisation can quickly turn catastrophic due to the time taken from the time of accident/injury to the time of receiving professional medical assistance.
  • The confined space. Within most wind turbines, the electro-mechanical parts of a wind turbine generator are typically in very confined spaces, further compounded by multiple people being in an area at one time and exit routes often tricky to negotiate. In the event of any incident, the path of escape/exit is not straight forward.
