The Wind Turbine Safety Rules (WTSRs) are a model set of Safety Rules and procedures to help formalise a Safe System of Work (SSoW) to manage the significant risks associated with a wind turbine, both onshore and offshore. They have been developed by wind farm owners and operators for the purpose of achieving both general safety and safety from the system – a process that safeguards persons from the mechanical plant and LV apparatus and the associated system derived hazards.
The general direction of the Rules will be set by the SafetyOn Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) together with members of the G+ Global Offshore Wind Health and Safety Organisation.
For those of you who are using the WTSR please see COVID-19 WTSR Training Update
