Helideck Emergency Response Team Leader (HERTL)


The aim and objectives of the HLO Helideck Emergency Response Team Leader Training programme are:
1. HLOs to understand the importance of pre-planning for and the main elements of the response requirement for a range of helideck and helicopter emergencies.
2. HLOs to understand the importance of emergency response practice via onshore training and offshore drills.
3. HLOs to understand the requirement for different types of emergency response systems and controls.
4. Understand how the limited emergency response capability on an NUI can affect NUI helideck emergency response.
5. The roles and responsibilities of both the HLO and the Helideck Emergency Response Team during a helicopter-related emergency.
6. Understanding the human factors issues during emergencies and how to manage them.
7. Leading the Helideck Emergency Response Team during a range of typical helideck simulated emergency scenarios some of which involve live fires, in a safe and controlled manner.
