Terminology used in safety at work at height

Here we leave a brief glossary on the different terms used in the field of safety in work at height

Photovoltaic installations, types, and maintenance and safety measures

Depending on the type of installation to be built, as well as its application, either a single panel or a group of them that are electrically connected can be used

What are the components of a Solar Photovoltaic Installation connected to the grid?

A photovoltaic installation connected to the grid consists solely of photovoltaic modules (or solar panels) and inverters. Not so the autonomous photovoltaic installations where, in general, the storage battery and its respective charge regulator must be added.

What is Solar Energy?

Solar energy is the energy obtained by capturing the light and heat emitted by the sun. It can be harnessed through the heat it produces, as well as through the absorption of radiation. It is part of the compendium of energies.

MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR OF WIND TURBINES

Offshore wind industry has greater growth potential, since the wind resource is 30 - 50 percent higher at sea than on land. The infrastructure required for the installation of an offshore wind farm is more complex than on land. Today we will see how to carry out maintenance and repair work on the different structures that make up an offshore wind farm.

OFFSHORE WIND STRUCTURES

Offshore wind industry has greater growth potential, as wind resources are 30 – 50 percent higher at sea than on land. The infrastructure required for the installation of a offshore wind farm is more complex than on land.

WHAT IS WIND ENERGY?

The wind energy sector has become the most mature of all renewable energy sectors, especially the part of the industry dedicated to offshore wind. Becoming one of the pillars of the global energy transition, the need to work with safe and efficient means in the installation, maintenance and repair of wind turbines and related infrastructure will become necessary.

The solutions offered by EGA Group for working at heights

Today we finish this series on the danger posed by dropped objects, their risks, causes and preventions. As we promised at the beginning of this journey, we will tell you about the solutions that we offer from EGA Group to help you.

DROPS RECOMMENDATIONS: Securing Personnel (Part 2)

In the previous post we talked about the measures recommended by the DROPS organisation for securing personnel using tools weighing less than 5 kilos when working at height. Today we continue on how to secure operators when operating with tools above the above mentioned weight.

DROPS RECOMMENDATIONS: Securing Personnel (Part 1)

Common Causes of Incidents: Complacency, Incompetence, Lack of Supervision, uncertified or Damaged Fall Arrest Equipment, Operator Error, Poor Communication, Snagging and Collisions, Environmental Factors. Today we talk about what recommendations DROPS gives to secure tools under 5 kilos/ 11 lbs. Keep reading
