Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (BOSIET)

Lym Consults offers BOSIET accredited training course to oil and gas offshore personnel with an aim of introducing them to special safety issues and regimes relevant to offshore installations and to equip them with the basic emergency response knowledge and skills for travelling to and from offshore installations by helicopter and boats. The BOSIET training is also aimed at equipping the offshore delegates with the knowledge and ability on how to:

  • Identify the generic hazards which are common and very 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.
  • Practically use the safety equipment, and follow procedures in preparing for and during helicopter emergencies – with particular focus on escaping from a helicopter following ditching/capsizing event.
  • Evacuate, escape, board a lifeboat and survive at sea in an event of an emergency on the offshore installation platforms.
  • Give first aid to their injured colleagues on platforms as a result of accidents.
  • Practically and effectively use basic firefighting equipment, and practice self-rescue techniques in low visibility situations, to include smoke filled areas.

Delegates are introduced to the training in a theoretical manner which is followed by practical demonstration of the modules in a DPR approved simulating environment and equipment as shown in the pictures on this page.
