The G+ is delighted to start using Toolbox to disseminate lessons learnt from offshore wind incidents with the global offshore community.

Toolbox is a free to use web app which holds incident lessons and safety information shared by global energy companies for you to use at work every day, helping you and your team to get home safe.

We are calling the offshore wind community to share relevant safety alerts with us so that others can benefit from your experiences.
