Conference history - Who attends?
Since running the first ever dedicated B2B health and safety conference for the region back in 2011, we attracted over 250 key industry figures, representing the leading stakeholders involved in the development of North American wind power generation, including:

Best in class speaker faculty handpicked from around the globe
This event brings together representatives from Government bodies, Owners and Operators of wind parks and EHS experts to discuss the critical themes that our independent research has highlighted. Selected speakers include:
Why attend this summit? Why is EHS important to me?
The scale of North America’s operational wind portfolio rivals that of anywhere else in the globe. Due to the USA’s expiring Production Tax Credit (PTC), and uncertainty as to how it will be extended or replaced, 2012 has seen a surge in the number of wind projects requiring completion before December 31st.
In the haste to construct before this impending deadline, the constant and ever present challenge of maintaining worker safety must not go unchecked. This construction boom means more construction workers, crane operators and contractors working on projects (often at the same time). Frequently these workers have backgrounds in industries other than renewable energy and employ varying safety cultures.
Along with new build, a health and safety (HSE) manager has an older fleet of turbines that require annual inspections, end of warranty (EOW) inspections and repair work. This means even more staff working in confined, hazardous environments often at great height.
Personnel safety is, and will remain, priority #1 for all wind generation companies. Everyone benefits from increased credibility in this area.
Harness a safe, lasting solution for robust and repeatable operational standards
Identify your risks early, and then implement the right methods of control. A wind HSE manager needs to employ this to the following three focus areas
At Wind Energy Update’s annual health and safety summit, the top three areas are covered in-depth with case studies from leading wind farm operators, independent experienced WTG suppliers as well as government bodies.
By understanding the different requirements in each area, a HSE manager can implement a recognised approach within his own team.
In 2012 this conference is the only place where all three topics have their critical points discussed in a peer to peer format.
Practical, efficient and economical answers to pressing 2012 risks
The Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is working towards the production of clear and efficient safety standards specific to wind energy. Get the facts on what OSHA plans to advise as mandatory vs. optional working requirements.
Learn about the latest WTG designs, which integrated components they include and expected turbine size, to get a full understanding on transportation, installation and O&M requirements.
Hear construction phase case study successes, mitigate unique heavy lift challenges arising from equipment type and complex logistics to safely build your project on time and on budget.
Give your team a safety edge by installing the proper culture right from the beginning of the O&M phase. Maintenance of a single turbine can span 20 years so ensuring the right processes are in place early on will reap long term dividends.
Position yourself to capitalise on the 2012 construction boom. Build up a solid health and safety strategy through early risk identification and technical expertise.
Looking forward to meeting you in Dallas.
