G+ is the global health and safety organisation, bringing together the offshore wind industry to pursue shared goals and outcomes. It is run in partnership with the Energy Institute, which provides the secretariat and supports its work.

The G+ has three main work areas:

  • Incident data reporting
  • Good practice guidance
  • Safe by Design workshops.

What's new?

G+ and COVID-19 Update

The G+ secretariat are continuing to work remotely and are following the Energy Institute’s business continuity procedures. We are all accustomed to working remotely. Following the March G+ European Focal Group meeting, that was held via conference call on 12th March, it was decided that the G+  should hold all of its meetings virtually. The Safe by Design workshop was scheduled for June, but this has now been put on hold.

The G+ will continue with its work programme and regular meetings, but they will all be conducted remotely.

As always, please get in touch if there is anything you would like to discuss or for us to work on. We are contactable through the website, e-mail gplus@energyinst.org, LinkedIn or Twitter.
