Tropical Further Offshore Emergency Training

Objective

• 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 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.

• Demonstrate that they can perform basic first aid.

Target Group

This programme is designed to meet the further offshore safety and emergency response training requirements for personnel working in the offshore oil and gas industry in a tropical environment.

Prerequisites

A valid (in-date) OPITO-approved BOSIET, TBOSIET, BOSIET (with CA-EBS), FOET, TFOET or FOET (with CA-EBS) certificate

Examination

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.

4. 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.
5. Escape through a window opening which is underwater from a partially submerged helicopter (without operation of a push out window).
6. Escape through a window opening which is underwater from a partially submerged helicopter (including the operation of a push out window).
7. Escape through a window opening which is underwater from a capsized helicopter (including the operation of a push-out window)
8. 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.
9. Boarding an aviation liferaft from the water.
10. Being rescued by one of the recognised methods available offshore and survivor actions following rescue.

Fire Fighting and Self Rescue
1. Correct use of appropriate 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
