Silverwater, Australia, July 09, 2011 --( Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA, PROTECTA and UNILINE brands of fall protection equipment, has created a global wind energy team to meet the growing global demand in the renewable energies sector.

Andrew Sweeney, National Utilities and Wind Energy Manager for Capital Safety Australia and New Zealand comments: “Over the past five years we have been working with OEM’s in the wind energy sector on a project by project basis, advising them on their safety requirements. Our main focus is ensuring key customers including manufacturers, wind farms, and construction and service firms, have the best in fall protection solutions and services for employees who work at height.

“We have chosen to set up a global Capital Safety wind energy team, as we have found that it is essential to have safety experts who know the issues that OEM’s are facing in each specific region. With this in mind, our team of highly trained wind energy safety experts has been created, and includes representatives in Australia, Asia, United States, Canada and Europe.”
