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.
