International Rescue – Sea Survival Training

HART has entered into a joint venture with the renowned Marine Training Institution, North West Kent College, to deliver GWO & RUK accredited Sea Survival Training.

HART’s engineering team designed and installed specialist gantries, winches, helicopter and TP transfer stations to be used as part of the Sea Survival course, which is one of five courses covered in the Basic Safety Training Standard. The others courses are Work at Height & Rescue, Manual Handling, Fire Awareness and First Aid.

The Global Wind Organisation (GWO) is an association of wind turbine owners and manufacturers aimed at supporting an injury free work environment in the wind industry. RenewableUK is the voice of wind and marine energy and the UK’s leading trade association representing the interest of the renewable power sector.

Upon completion of the GWO & RUK Basic Safety Training (BST) delegates will possess an awareness of the hazards encountered when working within the wind industry as well as and how to control and mitigate them.

The BST will also equip participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to appropriately respond in the event of an emergency and to increase their safety through proper use of PPE, emergency equipment and procedures.

The Sea Survival standard outlines the basic safety training and competence required by RenewableUK & GWO for all personnel involved in Vessel Transit and Transfer for passengers.

Successful achievement of competency requires personnel to demonstrate, to the required level; theoretical understanding and knowledge, and practical application of skills.

The Sea Survival standard covers:

  • Legislation
  • Exposure, Hypothermia and Drowning
  • Life Saving Appliances and PPE
  • Safe Transfer
  • Man Over Board
  • Practical Sea Survival Techniques
  • Life Rafts
  • Helicopter Rescue Simulation
  • Vessel to TP transfer
