This course is designed to enable participants to identify the signs and symptoms of some common musculoskeletal injuries in the wind turbine industry, and give them the skills, knowledge, and understanding to avoid these injuries.
Participants will undertake theoretical training online at their own pace, and then come to a Safer at Work training venue to put the principles they have learnt into practice in a variety of scenarios.
