Respond to an Incident on a Helideck
The purpose of ERGT’s Helideck Incidents (HDI) course is to provide personnel with the skills and knowledge required to provide essential rescue and containment services in a helideck incident.
It is designed for people operating in support of helicopter operations at a remote location or specialised helideck landing facility normally in the resource industry. In the event of an incident, the person would be required to identify the course of action to be taken and undertake a front line role in rescue operations and damage control. At all times they would be cooperating with other members of the Emergency Response Team (ERT).
