GWO Control of Hazardous Energy (COHE)

Due to the existence of hazardous energies, workers in the wind industry face a very significant risk of injury. This is caused by several factors, including the presence of potentially hazardous energies in various forms in the environment of wind turbines and wind farms.

The need for Control of Hazardous Energies (CoHE) Training in the wind industry prompted the development of this standard, which is now industry practice. It was developed collaboratively by members of the Global Wind Organization (GWO) and is based on risk assessments, in-depth descriptions of job roles and tasks relevant to CoHE in the wind industry, and incident and accident statistics pertaining to the installation, commissioning, service, and maintenance of wind turbine generators and wind power plants.
