In order to work as a wind tower technician, you have to be certified to be able to evacuate from the nacelle ( the turbine housing at the top of the tower) in case for whatever reason you can not escape by climbing the ladder down the main tower.
As far as we know, no one has ever had to do this but as part of the wind technician certification you need to know how and be practiced at it. If you are considering a career as a wind energy technician you probably are not afraid of heights to begin since some of these towers are hundreds of feet high.
