Tropical Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training
• Identify the generic hazards which are specific to offshore oil and gas installations, potential risks associated with those hazards, and how controls are put in place to eliminate or reduce risks.
• Identify key offshore related safety regulations and explain the basic safety management concepts
• 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
• Demonstrate sea survival and first aid techniques
• Demonstrate that they can effectively use basic firefighting equipment, and practise self-rescue techniques in low visibility situations, to include smoke filled areas.
This training programme is designed to meet the initial offshore safety and emergency response training requirements for personnel new (or returning) to the offshore oil and gas industry in a tropical environment.
Delegates will be assessed against the Learning Outcomes specified in the Content Section using direct observation and oral and/or written questions as appropriate. Delegates will be required to undertake a written test at the end of Module 1 (Safety Induction). This test will be ‘open-book’ and all learning outcomes must be achieved.
Should a delegate encounter challenges to meet these Learning Outcomes, RON shall provide additional coaching as an opportunity to meet those requirements.
Assessments are carried out against the OPITO standard Tropical Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training; OPITO Standard Code: 5501
During these assessments candidates must demonstrate competence across the following Modules:
Helicopter Safety and Escape
Fire Fighting and Self Rescue
The Learning Outcomes for these Modules which each delegate must demonstrate are as follows:
Basic Safety Induction
1. Identify the main offshore hazards and hazard effects/consequences; explain their associated risks, and how they are controlled.
2. Explain the potential environmental impact of offshore installation operations.
3. Identify key offshore installation safety regulations and explain the basic concept of these regulations.
4. Explain the principles of managing safety on offshore installations.
5. State the procedure for prescribed medicines offshore.
6. Explain the concept of alcohol and substance abuse policy.
7. Explain PPE requirements of working on an offshore installation.
8. Explain how to report incidents, accidents and near misses on an offshore installation.
9. Explain the role of the Offshore Medic.
Helicopter Safety and Escape Training
1. Donning an aviation lifejacket.
2. Actions to take in preparation for a helicopter ditching and an emergency landing.
3. Actions following a controlled emergency descent to a dry landing with evacuation via a nominated exit.
4. Actions following a controlled ditching on water (including operation of a push out window on instruction from aircrew) and evacuate through a nominated exit to an aviation liferaft.
5. 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.
6. Escaping through a window opening which is underwater, from a partially submerged helicopter (without operation of a push out window).
7. Escaping through a window opening which is underwater, from a partially submerged helicopter (including the operation of a push out window).
8. Escaping through a window opening which is underwater, from a capsized helicopter (without operation of a push out window).
9. Escaping through a window opening which is underwater, from a capsized helicopter (including the operation of a push out window)
10. Inflating an aviation lifejacket and deploying a spray visor in water
11. Boarding an aviation liferaft from water.
Sea Survival Training
1. Donning of a permanent buoyancy lifejacket prior to use in an emergency.
2. The correct actions when mustering and boarding a survival craft (TEMPSC) as a passenger during launching operations.
3. Fitting of a helicopter rescue device and correct body posture during winching.
4. Water entry (stepping off poolside, maximum height 1 metre) and the precautions to be taken when entering the water
5. Individual and group sea survival techniques, to include: swimming, getting into Heat Escape Lessening Position (HELP), wave-slap protection, towing, chain, huddle and circle.
6. Boarding a marine liferaft from the water.
7. Immediate first aid actions, including checking airways, breathing and industry recognised first aid practice
Fire Fighting and Self Rescue Techniques
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.
