ESTA calls on wind industry to act on new best practice guide and improve safety

ESTA is calling on its members and supporters to encourage the wind industry to adopt its new best practice guide and improve the sector’s safety record. For a limited period, the Best Practice Guide for Transport and Installation of Onshore WTG Systems can be downloaded free of charge from ESTA’s website.

The detailed 52-page document is the result of over three year’s work and aims to help cut the worrying level of accidents. ESTA Director Ton Klijn said: “We believe the guide is an excellent and valuable document and deserves the widest possible circulation.  It has already attracted a lot of interest, but we now need the industry to act on its recommendations .

“To that end, we want all of our members, supporters and friends to circulate the guide as widely as possible to any company with an interest in the wind industry.”
