The emergency training that is offered to people who work in an offshore facility or are about to join offshore vessels is known as BOSIET (Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training). BOSIET is a very simple training program that covers all major and minor points of safe working in the offshore facility. The course duration is mainly of three days.
The various aspects of the BOSIET training program can be explained below:
BOSIET is just a first step in terms of offshore survival training courses. After gaining the required safety training through BOSIET, a person can opt for further emergency training courses. The validity of this course is for four years. After the validity period is over, in order to continue with the validation there is a refresher course that is also offered. The duration of the refresher course is one day. If by any chance, an offshore oil drill worker fails to take the refresher course then the person has to repeat the entire BOSIET test again to continue working in the oil drill.
The BOSIET emergency training is offered in all countries. The training that is imparted contains both theory and practical application so that the learner can understand all the aspects easily. The total hours of training comes to around 22.5 hours. In order to certify that a person has successfully completed the training, a certificate is issued to the person.
Working in offshore areas is very difficult. But, as much as risky offshore drill areas are, it cannot be denied that they are equally necessary. This is why with the help of BOSIET a very important preventive measure towards reducing the chances of any human loss is carried out.
