At Windcom, safety is number one. We have an annual safety training where all techs get a refresher course over a span of one week. But we do not wait until then to update and add training. Almost weekly, I prepare and share a new training module. These are mandatory, short courses provided online. A test is given at the end of each training and techs are required to pass. WindCom tracks each tech to determine if they are completing them.
By reviewing the rigging and platform checklists (along with the photos), I can see trends and update training while coaching the technicians. We find that our techs are eager to improve and make suggestions that will help us keep current. One of the ways is through our Safety Committee meetings.
