GWO Basic Safety Control of Hazardous Energies (Basic CoHE)

The GWO Control of Hazardous Energies (CoHE) standard has been developed in response to the demand for recognisable Control of Hazardous Energies Training in the wind industry. It has been created in co-operation between members of the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) based on risk assessments, in-depth descriptions of job roles and tasks relevant to CoHE in the wind industry as well as factual incident and accident statistics pertaining to the installation, commissioning, service and maintenance of wind turbine generators and wind power plants.  

The Global Wind Organisation (GWO) Safety Control of Hazardous Energies (CoHE) Combined standard consists of three modules which are:

  • GWO Basic Safety Control of Hazardous Energies (Basic CoHE)
  • GWO Pressure Safety Control of Hazardous Energies (Electrical Safety CoHE)
  •  GWO Electrical Safety Control of Hazardous Energies (Electrical Safety CoHE)

These three modules can also be booked as a combined course at AIS Survivex >>


Course Overview

The overall objective of the course is to develop participants understanding of the hazardous energies associated with working on wind turbines, their roles and responsibilities, how to create a safe working environment and what to do in various routine, specialised and emergency scenarios.


Course Objectives

Delegates completing the GWO Basic Control of Hazardous Energies will have knowledge of;

  • Control of hazardous energies basic safety
  • Lockout-Tagout for an Ordinary Person
  • Mechanical Safety
  • Electrical Safety
  • Pressure Fluid Safety
  • Hazardous energy scenario



In order to complete a GWO Control of Hazardous Energies (CoHE) course, delegates must:

  • Be WINDA registered before arriving for the course



The Global Wind Organisation (GWO) have launched a Global Wind Industry Records Database (WINDA) which allows your to verify your GWO certificates with employers.

Registering with WINDA is quick and easy, and you must do this before arriving for your course.
