How to keep wind workers safer on the job

Working in the wind turbine industry is no breeze for those whose job it is to build these large metal structures and help to keep them in motion. In 2021, 22.5 % of all fatal accidents at work in the European Union (EU) occurred in construction. Furthermore, in 2022, 21% of all fatal injuries in the UK were caused by workers being struck by moving objects.

Wind turbines are complex pieces of machinery that go through different phases until they are fully functional. From building all the components, to transporting them to their location, then operating the turbines and keeping them in good functioning order – all of these stages expose workers to various occupational hazards.

At Honeywell, we have the right solutions to help mitigate all associated risks and keep workers safe at work.
