ERGT Australia’s OPITO Tropical Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (T-BOSIET) course covers offshore-specific safety induction, helicopter safety and escape, sea survival and fire fighting and self-rescue.
This course is essential for personnel who are new to the offshore oil and gas industry that require this safety and emergency response training and assessment. The TBOSIET course is suitable for warm water locations. Those who are required to travel over cold, or both cold and warm water, are advised to complete the OPITO Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (BOSIET) course.
The expected learning outcomes for the OPITO TBOSIET are the ability 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 firefighting equipment, and practise self-rescue techniques in low visibility situations, to include smoke filled areas
