    INTRODUCTION

    The offshore oil & gas industry operates in some of the most dangerous environments in theworld. Hazards are expected in this setting and must be controlled.

    Improvements in technology, workforce involvement, infrastructure care and rig operationshave led to recent reductions in injuries and incidents but, it is recognised, more still needsto be done. It is believed that improved base line safety training is likely to improve thesituation by ensuring that all personnel have the necessary safety awareness and basicskills training to recognise and avoid risk.

    To address this need, companies in the UK North Sea, along with Step Change in Safety,agreed to develop an introductory training programme that would introduce the key safetyelements required by all employees offshore.

    The course can be offered at an OPITO approved training establishment or be employer led(OPITO approval required).

    The OPITO Offshore Oil & Gas Industry Minimum Industry Safety Training(MIST)is highlyrecommended for all inexperienced employees.

    SECTION A TRAINING PROGRAMME

    A.1 Target Group

    This introductory safety training programme is designed to introduce the fundamental

    safety elements of the offshore oil & gas industry to new starts, giving anappreciation of the potential hazards and controls that might be encountered bypersonnel offshore. Each unit has been designed to focus the delegates attentionon their personal responsibility for safety thus influencing their behaviour and attitudetowards their co-workers, the installation and the environment.

    The following modules are included:

    Module 1 Introduction to the Hazardous Offshore Environment

    Module 2 Working Safely including Safety Observations Systems

    Module 3 Understanding the Risk Assessment ProcessModule 4 Tasks that Require Permit to Work

    Module 5 Personal Responsibility in Maintaining Asset Integrity

    Module 6 Using Manual Handling Techniques Every Day

    Module 7 Controlling the Use of Hazardous Substances Offshore

    Module 8 Knowledge and Practices of Working at Height

    Module 9 Being Aware of Mechanical Lifting Activities

    The responsibility for delivering and assessing this programme rests with OPITOapproved training providers and employers.

    A.2 Delegate Prior Achievement

    There are no prior achievements required. It is expected that this programme will betaken after the OPITO approved BOSIET course so training providers can build onthe material gained previously. However, if this is not the case then the BOSIETcourse will be required prior to travelling offshore and the delegate should expect asmall proportion of repeat information.

    A.3 Medical and Health Requirements

    There are no specific medical requirements, although personnel must have a currentoffshore medical certificate before being allowed to work offshore.
