IWEA – Irish Wind Energy Association
Present: Lynn Macnab, Jeremy Weiss and our very own Declan Corrigan, who was present as Chair of the IWEA H&S Transport Sub Group.
We have recently returned from Dublin. Windhoist Training Centre were exhibiting this year and it was a huge success. As we are strong advocates for Health & Safety it was imperative that we showcased our expertise in regards to GWO training.
We received a lot of support from the Irish market and we were thrilled to chat with many professionals all within the Health & Safety Industry.
The Windhoist Training Centre stand definitely attracted a great deal of interest – our toy cranes certainly got people talking. We had a queue forming at one point!
Declan Corrigan, (Technical Manager), McNally’s Crane Hire/Windhoist shared a hard-hitting video titled “The Reality”. There was a real interview with a close friend who sadly encountered a tragic accident involving a vehicle and heavy machinery – that could have been prevented with more care and time. Luckily the gentleman survived but the video highlighted the importance that workplace accidents can really happen to anyone.
Comment from our Lead Trainer – Jeremy Weiss
“The IWEA 2016 Health & Safety exhibition was an excellent opportunity to network and share ideas with like-minded industry professionals. I was very excited by the excellent panels of industry leading speakers, particularly those addressing Road Safety Awareness & Legal Issues.”
A huge thanks to IWEA for hosting a wonderful event. We look forward to exhibiting again next year.
