OPITO Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (BOSIET) with Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) 5750
OPITO Approved Safety Course for Offshore Workplaces | Practice CA EBS Use Underwater
ERGT Australia’s Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (BOSIET) with Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) course content covers offshore-specific safety induction, helicopter safety and escape, sea survival and first aid, fire fighting and self-rescue. It also addresses the principles of typical emergency breathing systems used in the oil and gas industry, and specifically the components, use and hazards associated with CA-EBS and the actions to be taken when conducting pre-flight inspections, donning the life jacket correctly, buddy checks and emergency deployment in water.
This course is essential for personnel who are new to the offshore oil and gas industry. If you are unsure if this is the correct course for you, please check with your employer for specific training requirements for your role or call us if you have any queries before booking online.
The BOSIET (with CA-EBS) includes essential content specific to travel over cold water, and is suitable for those travelling over both cold and warm water environments.
*Price Includes GST
The objectives of the BOSIET with CA-EBS training are the ability of delegates to:
– 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 fire fighting equipment, and practise self-rescue techniques in low visibility situations, to include smoke-filled areas.

Medical and Health Standards
A current offshore or industry equivalent medical is required for this course. Please refer to the ERGT Medical Form for accepted medicals and requirements.
There is an increased risk of decompression sickness for those who fly at altitude after breathing compressed air underwater. As per the Divers Alert Network (DAN) Revised Flying After Diving Guidelines for Recreational Diving – May 2002, a minimum pre-flight surface interval of 12 hours is recommended. Trainees should take this into consideration when arranging for travel after course completion and refer to their company’s Health and Safety department for further advice.
Please bring swimwear and towel for in-water activities. Government-issued photo identification is required for course registration.
Structure and Assessment
This course is delivered through classroom presentations, group discussion and practical components within a simulated workplace environment. Trainees are required to demonstrate their competence through written assessment and practical exercises. Practical exercises include the trainee deploying the CA EBS with both hands, as well as purging and breathing off it whilst underwater. The CA EBS is not used during the Helicopter immersion exercises.
To maintain this certificate it is an OPITO requirement to revalidate every 4 years (FOET or TFOET)
