The G+ Global Offshore Wind Health and Safety Organisation (G+), in partnership with the Energy Institute (EI) held their first Stakeholder Forum with key industry stakeholders in London on 22 October 2013. Attendees at the Stakeholder Forum heard from G+ members who presented the organisation’s main aims and objectives and the work to date to improve health and safety performance. They explained why the G+, as major offshore wind developers, is accountable for the health and safety of workers on their sites and how it fits into the European offshore wind industry.

A subsequent debate with a panel of senior industry representatives (comprising G+ and non-G+ members) discussed the benefits of common guidelines, how the G+ guidelines should be implemented and key future issues facing the offshore wind industry.
