Select Access is delighted to announce that we have joined Wind Energy Ireland (WEI) as an associate member for 2024.

This strategic decision to become a member of WEI aligns with the company’s growth plans of offering proven work at height safety and access to the Wind Turbine industry in Ireland.

Joining as an Associate member, Ross Cardiff, Technical Manager will sit on the Health and Safety committee. Select Access teams will attend several WEI events throughout the year, including the Offshore Wind Conference 2024 taking place in April and Wind Energy Trade Show 2024 in November.

Commenting on joining, Ross Cardiff remarks:

“Joining Wind Energy Ireland is an important step on our growth journey. There is an exciting opportunity to be a part of delivering Ireland’s ambitious wind energy and climate targets.

We aim to help all members by bringing our expertise in height safety and access to the fore to ensure everyone testing and maintaining the current wind turbines in Ireland, and those supporting the vast pipeline of new projects, do so safely and securely.”

Health and Safety Committee

There are four working groups within the health and safety committee including:

  • Emergency Response
  • Wind Turbine Safety Rules
  • Construction Safety Awareness
  • Offshore Safety
  • HSA

As part of the health and safety committee, Ross will be involved in informing Construction Safety Awareness and Wind Turbine safety rules, in particular outlining the benefits our innovative JibFlex solution can bring to the safe lifting and manual handling of equipment in onshore and offshore wind turbines.

Select Access height safety and access systems can be designed bespoke to suit wind turbine facilities.

Our experience in providing proven work at height safety and access solutions to a diverse client portfolio since 2016 can help inform safe operation, testing and maintenance of Wind Turbine facilities.
