As a result, safety issues are of great relevance. In the past, the industry tried to address safety issues with score cards. However, Uwe Sarrazin from GE does not agree with this approach: “It’s not about statistics, it is personal!” Therefore an industry-wide commonly shared HSE cultural mind set is needed. A working group implemented by VDMA Power Systems brought together wind turbine manufacturers and subcontractors to initiate a change of culture. In their Wind Industry Safety Culture Conference (25 September from 9 am to 1 pm) the group will discuss the Seven Safety Principles they have adopted: 1. Health and safety of people is valued above all else. 2. All injuries can be prevented – we plan for safety. 3. Management at all levels is accountable for safety and leads by example. 4. Everyone looks out for each other no matter who they work for. 5. Safe behaviour is recognised, acknowledged and praised. 6. ZERO tolerance for safety infringements. 7. Everyone has the courage to STOP any unsafe work. CWPBEIJING Website:www.chinawind.org.cn
