The objectives of the FOET (with EBS) are that delegates will be able to:
(a) Demonstrate, in a simulated environment, that they can use the safety equipment and follow procedures in preparing for and during helicopter emergencies – with particular focus on escaping from a helicopter following ditching.
(b) Demonstrate that they can use basic firefighting equipment effectively, and use self-rescue techniques in low visibility and completely obscured visibility situations e.g. smoke filled areas.
(c) Demonstrate that they can perform basic first aid.
This training programme is designed to meet the further offshore safety and emergency response training requirements for personnel new (or returning) to the offshore oil and gas industry who will be supplied with a rebreather emergency breathing system (EBS) during offshore helicopter travel.
The FOET (with EBS) is open to persons who have a valid (in-date) OPITO-approved BOSIET (with CA-EBS), BOSIET, TBOSIET, FOET (with CA-EBS), FOET or TFOET certificate.
Assessments are carried out against the OPITO standard Further Offshore Emergency Training; OPITO Standard Code: 5858. Delegates will be assessed against the Learning Outcomes specified in the Content Section using direct observation.
Should a delegate encounter challenges to meet these Learning Outcomes, RON shall provide additional coaching as an opportunity to meet those requirements.
The Learning Outcomes which each delegate must demonstrate are as follows:
Helicopter Safety and Escape
1. Donning an aviation transit suit, aviation lifejacket and emergency breathing system equipment (EBS) and conducting EBS integrity checks.
2. Deploying, operating and breathing from EBS at atmospheric conditions.
3. Deploying, operating and breathing from EBS in a pool utilising personal air prior to HUET exercises (delegate to experience positive and negative pressure created by the body orientation in water).
4. Actions to take in preparing for a helicopter ditching/emergency landing.
5. Actions following a controlled ditching on water (including deploying EBS and, on instructions from aircrew, operation of a push out window) and evacuate through a nominated exit to an aviation liferaft.
6. Assist others where possible in carrying out initial actions on boarding the aviation liferaft, to include mooring lines, deploying the sea anchor, raising the canopy and raft maintenance.
7. Escape through a window opening which is underwater from a partially submerged helicopter (deploying, operating and breathing from the EBS but without operation of a push out window).
8. Escape through a window opening which is underwater from a partially submerged helicopter (deploying, operating and breathing from the EBS and operation of a push out window).
9. Escape through a window opening which is underwater from a capsized helicopter (deploying and operating the EBS on the surface prior to capsize and operating a push-out window)
10. Following escape from the helicopter (HUET), inflate lifejacket, deploy spray visor and carry out in-water procedures, to include swimming, getting into Heat Escape Lessening Position (HELP), towing, chain, huddle and circle.
11. Boarding an aviation liferaft from the water.
12. Being rescued by one of the recognised methods available offshore and survivor actions following rescue.
Fire Fighting and Self Rescue
1. Correct use of hand held portable fire extinguishers and which ones to use for different classes of fires.
2. Self-rescue techniques with a smoke hood or partial blindfold from areas where delegate visibility is reduced.
3. Self-rescue techniques with a smoke hood or partial blindfold from areas where delegate visibility is completely obscured.
4. Small group escape techniques with a smoke hood or partial blindfold from areas where delegate visibility is completely obscured.
Emergency First Aid
1. Raising the Alarm.
2. Immediate first aid actions, to include industry recognised first aid practice.
