ABSTRACT
The article focuses on wind mills at Westmill Wind Farm in Oxfordshire, England, and the safety norms adopted at this farm. Director Rod Blunden informed that each turbine in the farm produces 1.3 mega watt of electrical power and efforts are being made to replace ladders in windmill with lifts. Occupational risk associated with the windmill industry is lesser than coal mines or fossil fuel power stations. It is stated that Great Britain plans to have 7,000 wind turbines by 2020.
