Wind Turbine Risk Assessment

Working with a wind turbine can be extremely dangerous. It is crucial that you abide by the law with regard to working with wind turbines.

We can provide you with leading health and safety consultants who can conduct a wind turbine risk assessment and ensure that your business is fully compliant with UK law.

Following the The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, all UK employers have a legal duty to ensure their employees are protected while carrying out work for them. Due to the risky nature of working with wind turbines, work in this sector is also covered by a number of other regulations including the Work at Height Regulations 2005.

Ensuring that an adequate wind turbine risk assessment has been conducted is the responsibility of the employer. Failure to ensure a suitable and sufficient wind turbine risk assessment has been completed can result in serious repercussions which the employer will have to face. This can include heavy fines, large compensation payouts and potential jail time. Therefore, it is crucial that your business undertakes a wind turbine risk assessment immediately.

Completing a wind turbine risk assessment

HSE guidance states that a wind turbine risk assessment must include the following components:

  • Identifying the hazards of working with/the location of the wind turbine
  • Identifying who might be harmed and how (including members of the public)
  • Evaluating the risks
  • Recording the findings and implementing them
  • Reviewing and regularly updating the assessment where necessary.
