About the course

This GWO Working at Height & Manual Handling course combines the course content from both our GWO Working at Height and GWO Manual Handling courses.

Course Aims

Hosted at our purpose-built training facility in Winchester, Hampshire, our skilled instructors will teach you the basic safety, knowledge, and competencies required to work safely at height within the wind industry – enabling you to stay safe both individually and collectively when working on or around wind-driven power generation infrastructure. In addition, you will also learn the importance of carrying out work duties in a safe and sound manner in accordance with legislative requirements.
