GWO Manual Handling Refresher


GWO accreditations should be renewed every 2 years. Refresher courses are only available to candidates who are already in possession of a valid, in-date certificate for the course they wish to refresh.

The GWO Manual Handling Refresher module covers all of the practical and theory skills of the full module to ensure that knowledge of the individual is up-to-date.

This module will encourage positive manual handling behavior and train individuals to perform manual handling tasks in a safe manner in the renewable and wind turbine industry/environment.

Our center is fully equipped with real world training environments designed to make sure delegates are comfortable carrying out manual handling emergency procedures whilst in environments such as the renewable industry.

Prior to completing this course, delegates will complete a medical assessment form to screen any medical issues they may have.

Delegates must be aged 18+ and should have a good level of English. Assessment for the GWO Basic Safety Training Package will consist of a practical and written multiple choice assessment.

The course covers rescue techniques and procedures which may need to be carried out in emergency situations which involve lifting objects or personnel when either alone or working as part of a team. The training deals with manual handling situations in various environments and ensures individuals are taught the importance of following procedure and regulations whilst working in these hazardous environments within the renewable energy industry.
