Every project has challenges, especially when your team is working on the other side of the world. Lion Bulk Handling is facing these challenges as well, our team is often working on board of a ship or rig. Our team is working at the shipyard for the commissioning of our bulk handling systems, but offshore (service) projects are also part of our abroad duties. It is therefore very important to know what to expect when working offshore. It is for example needed to have an BOSIET training certificate, if you would like to work on board of offshore related vessels.
The BOSIET or Basic Offshore Safety Introduction and Emergency Response Training is a training for employees or people who want to be active in the offshore sector. During this training provides the delegates with a basic level of understanding and awareness of safety and emergency response on offshore installations. Delegates will be required to demonstrate their skills and a level of knowledge and understanding of key areas, as defined in the OPITO Standard for Basic Offshore Safety Induction & Emergency Training.
This course includes a safety introduction, Helicopter safety & escape, Sea survival, Firefighting and self-rescue and of course an exam.

Offshore oil and gas operating companies worldwide seek to ensure that everyone travelling to one of their platforms has completed an appropriate offshore safety and emergency training course first. All Lion Bulk Handling (Carlsen, Ruyter Offshore) field engineers have completed a training programme to meet this offshore safety and emergency response training requirement for personnel in the offshore oil and gas industry (BOSIET). Do you have any questions on the above mentioned training or do you require one of our engineers on board for any bulk handling service or installation work, then contact us here.
