Statements of members of the Wind Harmony Steering Group
Harmonised EHS standards provides clarity. Any accident or incident hurts the entire industry, so sharing, aligning or learning are crucial for the industry to stay self-regulated.
The offshore wind supply chain largely works in many different countries. It is therefore essential that health and safety regulation, standards and good practice are harmonised across countries. A simpler system of operating leads to a safer and more cost-effective way of working for all.
If we all speak the same language there is less chance of missing the point. Missing the point on safety is not only expensive but simply dangerous.
As a client we like to speak in a clear language. Standardised H&S regulations help us to do just that.
Harmonized safety standards provide a uniform set of requirements to secure the safety of those working across the wind industry’s value chain, while also assuring lower liabilities and costs for our business partners.
Our industry fulfils an exemplary role in the context of climate change, it is of tremendous importance that we work together on H&S standardizations and best practices to be exemplary also in terms of safety.
There is no competition in terms of safety, only an inherent need to share and standardize H&S regulations so that at the end of day, wherever we are, we all go home safely.
