The first G+ Safe by Design workshop in the 2021 G+ work programme was focused on the issues associated with wind turbine blades. More specifically, around routine internal access and egress, routine maintenance, and emergency rescue from personnel accessing a blade.

The workshop, comprising problem identification and potential solution exercises, was held virtually on 10 June 2021. The workshop format was developed to explore these blade-related issues and potential solutions with a focus on design solutions. Across the workshop, many common and interrelated issues and associated recommendations were identified.
