As far as I know, there are only two safety factors: the first is the support and rigging system. In adverse weather, if the rigging is not sufficient or proper, the entire unit could fall over. The second is not really aimed toward people, but most people care about it. Birds tend not to notice some turbine designs, resulting in injury or death of birds. The only other hazard (electric shock) is present in every method of energy generation.

Wind energy helps in the creation of millions of jobs, generates electricity, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Until recently there are some concerns regarding the protection of birds, there are however measures that can be taken to reduce their fatality. P
