BOSIET course intended to help fulfill initial offshore safety training, emergency service training, and evaluation criteria for new offshore oil and gas workers. Other types of courses are also trained with this one and include helicopter survival, emergency first aid, sea survival, firefighting, self-rescue, and TEMPSC training. This is a very necessary course to ensure safety
BOSIET Course Objectives
Upon completion of the course, the delegates would have acquired a basic understanding and knowledge of the threats they will face as they operate offshore. They will also be incorporated into the protection regime and safety management systems in place to monitor and minimize these hazards. The instructor’s clarification and demonstration delegates must demonstrate comprehension and expertise in the various course modules.
The objectives of the BOSIET course for trainees to be able to:
- Identify the generic hazards specific to offshore oil and gas facilities, the possible risks associated with those hazards, and how controls are placed in place to avoid or minimize risks.
- Identify key offshore safety regulations and explain basic safety management principles
- Demonstrate marine survival and first aid methods
BOSIET training program
Emergency training given to people who work in an offshore facility or are about to enter offshore vessels is known as BOSIET (Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training). BOSIET is a very simple training curriculum covering both major and minor protection aspects of offshore operations. The length of the course is mostly for three days. The different aspects of the BOSIET training program can be explained below:
- The first phase in the offshore training program concerns safety inductions. This aspect deals with all the appropriate steps that a newly-inducted person is expected to take when working in an oil drill. Points on how to respond in the event of any emergency incident, such as fire, wastewater systems incidents, and narcotics and alcohol abuse, are covered by this BOSIET head.
- The second stage is the BOSIET emergency protection and escapes preparation. This segment deals with the training of a person on how to board a helicopter in the event of an emergency, how to use breathing devices in the event of danger, and how to support staff in a critical situation.
- Sea Survival is the third element of the BOSIET program. This involves the point of knowing when to abandon offshore drill and how to live in the high seas for long periods of time before rescue operators arrive on the scene.
- Firefighting and Self-Rescue is the fourth issue discussed by BOSIET. The firefighting application in offshore drill areas requires experience in running hoses and other smaller fire extinguishers. In addition, employees will need to know the causes and reasons for starting a fire. Other points in the fourth BOSIET emergency training shall deal with personal protection in the event of a diminished sight due to smoke.
BOSIET course focuses on the following elements:
- Identify major offshore hazards and hazard effects/consequences; describe their related threats and how they are managed.
- Explain the possible environmental impacts of offshore installation activities.
- Identify the main safety regulations for offshore installations and clarify the basic structure of these regulations.
- Clarify the principles of safety management for offshore installations.
- State the protocol for prescribed offshore medicinal items.
- Clarify the definition of policy on alcohol and drug abuse.
- Clarify the specifications of the PPE to operate on an offshore facility.
- Clarify how to record injuries, accidents, and near misses at an offshore facility.
- Explain the role of the Offshore Medical Officer
- Urgent first aid interventions, including the monitoring of airways, breathing and the industry, accepted the practice of first aid
Helicopter Safety & Escape:
- Carrying out an aviation transit suit, an aviation lifejacket, and an EBS, and performing EBS integrity checks.
- Measures to be taken in preparation for a helicopter ditch and an emergency landing.
- Actions after a controlled emergency descent to a dry landing with evacuation through a nominated exit.
- Deployment, activity, and respiration of EBS in a swimming pool using personal air prior to HUET exercise
- Acts following controlled ditching on the water (including the deployment of EBS and on guidance from the aircrew, operation of a push-out window) and evacuation via a nominated escape to an aircraft liferaft.
- Support others where possible, in carrying out initial activities on board an aircraft liferaft, to include mooring lines, the deployment of a sea anchor, the raising of a canopy, and maintenance of a raft.
- Escaping from the underwater windshield of a partly submerged helicopter
- Fleeing from the underwater windshield of a partly submerged helicopter
- Inflating the air lifejacket and deploying the spray visor in the water
- The boarding of an aeronautical liferaft.
- Donation of a permanent life jacket until use in an emergency.
- Proper steps to be taken while a survival craft (TEMPSC) is being assembled and boarded as a passenger during the start of operations.
- Installation of the helicopter strop and proper body posture during the winch.
- Individual and group sea survival strategies, including swimming, entering Heat Escape Lessing Position (HELP), wave-slap defense, towing, cord, huddle, and circle. Firefighting and Self-Rescue:
- Water entrance (stepping off the poolside, the overall height of 1 meter) and the measures to be taken when joining the water practice.
- The boarding of a marine liferaft from the sea.
- Immediate first aid intervention
Firefighting and Self Rescue:
- The right use of handheld fire extinguishers that can be used by various fire groups.
- Self-rescue methods with a smoke hood from areas where smoke limits visibility.
- Self-rescue methods with a smoke hood from areas where vision is totally obscured.
- Small group escape tactics with a smoke hood from areas where vision is totally obscured.
