The ART-H Hub, Spinner and Inside Blade Rescue (HSIBR) course is one of the Advanced Rescue Training (ART) training modules.

The learning objectives of the Advanced Rescue Training Hub Module are to ensure delegates' ability able to:

  • Assess and determine rescue strategy (relevant rescue method, technique, certified equipment, and required personnel) for various rescue scenarios
  • Assess and determine evacuation strategy during a rescue operation, attending to a clear and preferred evacuation route for the injured person outside or inside a wind turbine generator (WTG) tower
  • Explain and demonstrate the identification and suitable selection of certified and structural anchor points, relevant for various rescue scenarios
  • Explain and apply the concept of lifting angle, angle factor and deviation
  • Explain and control common risks of hazardous energies and common hazards of enclosed space areas in a wind turbine when performing rescue operations
  • Apply rescue methods and techniques when performing descending and ascending rescue operations, from a wind turbine hub, spinner and inside a blade, using a rescue stretcher and spineboard, manually operated lowering/raising rescue system for limited distance rescue (rescue device, pulley system or similar), and other relevant rescue equipment
  • Fit a harness and other PPE (e.g. helmet, safety glasses) onto an injured person, in an enclosed space in a WTG 
  • Package an injured person on a rescue stretcher and spineboard in a vertical or horizontal configuration to enable safe transportation, by doing regular checks, using rescue equipment such as a cervical collar and avoiding head down configuration of the unconscious/injured person
  • Communicate clearly within a potentially stressful rescue situation, both as rescue team coordinator and team member
