One of the most important aspects of the emerging offshore renewable energy industry is ensuring our local workforce is ready to take advantage of these job opportunities. Preparing the offshore wind workforce in the U.S. raises a few questions such as are there industry standards or best practices for workforce development in the U.S. and what specific types of training will be required? This session examines the training and education programs currently available and discusses how the wind energy industry is ensuring worker safety and health practices for offshore wind energy. To address these issues an overview will be provided of the comprehensive health and safety zero-harm workforce training and development necessary to prepare US workers for the offshore renewable energy industry.
