wind powerAs an emerging, rapidly developing industry, wind energy has some unique occupational hazards as well as some that are not so unique, like working at height.

Through an Alliance with the American Wind Energy Association, OSHA sent nearly 40 safety and health compliance officers from across the country to train at the Suzalon Wind Turbine Training facility in Elgin, Ill. The training, which took place last week, was designed to provide OSHA's compliance officers with intense, hands-on education about the wind energy industry.

Through the Alliance Program, OSHA works with groups committed to worker safety and health to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses. Visit OSHA's Wind Energy page to learn more about protecting workers in the wind energy industry.
