Ørsted launches safety training program
Ørsted has launched an immersive safety training program called Thrive in the Humber region, UK.
Located at the MODAL Training Centre in Immingham, the purpose-built facility was created in partnership with training specialists Active Training Team (ATT).
Ørsted will initially induct all personnel working on the new Hornsea Two offshore wind project starting from this autumn before roll-out continues to other personnel.
According to the company, the one-day interactive, multi-media program is designed to transform behaviors and attitudes to safety, and includes a hard-hitting multi-media scenario which examines the build-up to a fatal incident on a load-out operation and its consequences.
“Safety is a core value and as such, it has been extremely difficult to postpone the roll out of this pivotal training. We’ve reduced numbers and introduced safety measures to ensure that our programme is fully compliant with government guidelines under these difficult circumstances,” said Jason Ledden, Ørsted Senior Construction Project Manager for Hornsea Two and Project manager for the Thrive facility development.
“We hope that other industries across the Humber will utilise this new exciting resource which aims to bring about behavioural changes in attitudes towards safety.”
