Global specialist staffing company RMI is supplying the 3.6-GW Dogger Bank wind farm with on-site medical support, it said mid-May. Workers are 130-190 km from the coastline and exposed to environmental extremes, so RMI’s involvement has been crucial in protecting the health and wellbeing of workers in this remote and hazardous job site, it said.
RMI said: “It’s a great privilege to be able to provide our robust health and safety solutions to the teams in place at the Dogger Bank Wind Farm…. While any approach of an offshore medic should be first and foremost preventative, our medics are prepared to deal with major incidents or an evacuation if required. However, we hope that their continual presence on Dogger Bank will help mitigate the associated risks, costs, and project impacts of any major incident.”
RMI has been servicing the offshore wind industry for many years so its medics have significant experience and training in renewables settings, particularly offshore wind, including Global Wind Organisation accreditation.
