Siemens Gamesa launches 2022 roll out of Thrive, award-winning immersive safety programme on the Humber


Leaders in renewable energy, Siemens Gamesa, are working with Active Training Team (ATT) to induct personnel from the UK and beyond through the Thrive Safety Leadership Centre based in Immingham throughout 2022.

Launched in 2020, the Thrive Safety Leadership Centre recently won both the Energy Institute’s 2021 Health & Safety Award and the Gold Award for Best Training Event at the EVCOM London Live and Film Awards.

Siemens Gamesa are now utilising Thrive to drive home crucial health and safety messaging in a new and innovative way, to ensure this learning is memorable and impactful. “Safety is part of our DNA at Siemens Gamesa. We are building a future for everyone, and we can only do this by establishing a safety culture across the company” explains Paulina Hobbs, Regional CEO, Siemens Gamesa Offshore Service, NEME.

With high-quality production values and industry-leading technology, Thrive is a powerful immersive experience designed to deliver tangible changes in behaviour, attitudes and outcomes.

Having attended Thrive, Paulina Hobbs commented: “It’s real. It’s our own industry. You see people’s emotions – it’s not the dry PowerPoint we used to have in the past about safety, and more than anything you have your colleagues next to you.”

Renewable energy provider Ørsted committed £1.4 million funding to create the purpose-built facility in partnership with training specialists Active Training Team (ATT.) The Thrive Safety Leadership Centre is designed as a legacy project for the Hornsea Two wind farm, enabling other companies and sectors to put their people through the programme. ATT works with companies across the UK and Europe including the Thames Tideway Tunnel Project, ABP, Crossrail, BP, and TfL.

Dermot Kerrigan, Co-Director of ATT said: “We’re delighted to be able to work with such innovative and forward-thinking organisations as Siemens Gamesa and Ørsted. The Thrive Safety Leadership Centre is here to support the burgeoning renewable and maritime sectors; we aim to set the benchmark in safety leadership and welcome enquiries from other organisations who share this aspiration.”
