AWEA’s safety campaign “Stand Tall” focuses on sprains and strains working in the nacelle. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), most-common non-fatal workplace injuries in 2019 were sprains, strains, and tears (approximately 35 incidents per 10,000 full-time workers). AWEA’s safety data shows the top injuries in the wind turbine generator (WTG) are sprains and strains from handling, lifting or carrying.

Soft tissue injuries-- sprains and strains-- may be sudden (acute) or long-standing (chronic). The symptoms of a sprain or strain may include pain, swelling, stiffness, and reduced efficiency of function. Our campaign materials provide an overview of sprains and strains, symptoms, and ways to prevent injury. The campaign also addresses the ways dynamic stretching can support working in the nacelle.
