Offshore Emergency Preparedness & Response Training

Safety training is a critical component of emergency preparedness and response planning. SSTL training courses provide workers and operators with emergency response procedures.
For those workers engaged in lead roles for offshore oil & gas exploration, productions and operations, SSTL provide formal training in Command & Control and Management of Major Emergencies. The program applies to Offshore Installation Managers (OIM), and those designated to succeed the OIM in emergency situations.
This training is also applicable to other senior managers of offshore installations; emergency response team members, including radio operators, control room operators, fire team leads; production leads; vessel leads; rig superintendents and other potential leaders in emergency situations.
OIM’s and deputy OIMs will also undergo a Person in Charge Assessment (PICA) as part of this process to assess their competency in Managing Major Emergencies.

  • Fast Rescue Craft Teams
