As you can imagine safety in the wind energy turbine installation and maintenance industry is very important. For example the widely used GE 1.5-megawatt model, for example, consists of 116-ft blades atop a 212-ft tower for a total height of 328 feet. The blades sweep a vertical airspace of just under an acre.
