Safety As a Top Priority – We Know How
The professionalisation of the wind energy industry is well advanced: laws, regulations, standards and guidelines have been standardised and made compulsory to the greatest possible extent. This has resulted in a whole range of specifications for which the operators of the wind turbines are responsible.
Only through regular inspection of the safety equipment and annually performed inspections that conform to the regulations of the DGUV (German statutory accident insurance institute, previously the UVV) can faults to the safety equipment be remedied in good time to ensure accidents are avoided. Deutsche Windtechnik offers the performance of all inspections, general overhaul work and/or repairs, from one source. We are happy to advise you on subjects related to occupational and equipment safety.
The inspections are based on the German Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health and the regulations of the BG expert committee. For the operator, regular inspections ensure ongoing operation of the wind turbines and their legal compliance.
All safety equipment in the wind turbines must be inspected at defined intervals in accordance with statutory regulations.
Our experts for safety engineering assess the following areas:
For good measure, we also create hazard assessments with an integrated site, alarm, emergency exit and rescue plan.
The functionality of all safety equipment is of central importance. If faults occur here, specialist personnel may no longer be able to access the system.
This frequently jeopardises the basis for all kinds of servicing tasks. Moreover, it presents significant potential hazards and operators expose themselves to the risk of being held personally liable. Fast and pragmatic interplay between identification and rectifying the source of the hazard is therefore essential in all cases.
We offer a full range of professional maintenance and repair services for all safety-system components. These include:
