Safety training for offshore and onshore wind

Wind power is an important renewable energy source. As agreed in the Climate Agreement, at least 35 terawatt hours of renewable electricity must be produced by 2030. Hence, more and more wind turbines will be built. Will you soon be working on the construction of wind turbines or performing maintenance on wind turbines on land or at sea? If so, it is mandatory that you take a GWO safety training course so that you can carry out your work safely. At DELTA Safety Training, we do everything we can to train as many people as possible in the field of safety. Through our years of experience, we know exactly how to best train you. So don't wait any longer and book your wind industry safety training soon!

Offshore oil and gas safety training

Working offshore can involve hazards. Therefore, it is important to be well prepared before you start your work offshore so that you can recognize the potential hazards, avoid them and act appropriately. Are you going to a drilling rig at sea to work soon? If so, it is mandatory to have taken offshore safety training so that you can perform your work safely.

At DELTA Safety Training, we train you during our offshore safety training courses so that you know how to act in emergency situations at sea. You can obtain both your OPITO and NOGEPA certificates from us for various offshore safety training such as BOSIET, FOET, HUET, EBS, CA-EBS, 0.5A, 0.5B etcetera. Both EBS and CA-EBS are fixed part of the OPITO/NOGEPA certified training courses and thus need not be taken in a separate module. So don't wait any longer and book your offshore safety training soon!

Do you still need a medical examination and would you prefer to have this done immediately after your safety training? You can flexibly schedule your offshore medical examination with us prior to or during the training courses. If you are more interested in a customized combination program with STCW or GWO, please contact us for more information!

Applications

Frequently asked questions about offshore

  • How can I check the validity and expiration date of an OPITO certificate?

    You can check the validity and expiration date of your OPITO certificate on the OPITO website.
  • Is there a dispensation scheme possible for OPITO certificates?

    OPITO operates a standard dispensation scheme separate from COVID-19. If you are performing your work offshore and your OPITO certificate expires exactly during that period, you can make a so-called "Request Dispensation OPITO." This is the only valid reason for working offshore with an invalid OPITO certificate.
  • What is a security passport (PSL)?

    The Personal Safety Logbook (PSL) is a personal booklet in which you can collect all your diplomas, skills and possibly medical data. It is not mandatory to have a safety passport, but it is a useful document in which you can keep all the above information together.
  • Is a VCA certificate mandatory for working offshore?

    Yes, this is generally required. It may also happen, depending on the area and the client where and for whom you will be working, that a MIST certificate is required. (Minimum Industry Safety Standard). A MIST training is the UK variant of the SCC training. VCA is also often accepted, but the certificate may not be older than 4 years.

    A NOGEPA offshore medical examination is often required to be able to work offshore. In the UK this is an OGUK medical certificate (Oil and Gas UK). In the UK a NOGEPA offshore medical examination is accepted.
  • What is the minimum training required to work offshore?

    This depends on the area in which you will be working, the work that you will be doing and the client for which you will be working. In general, an OPITO BOSIET / FOET certificate is required as a minimum and is accepted all over the world. There is sometimes an additional requirement for a MIST or VCA certificate. An H2S or S-Cape certificate may also be required by the client. This must be checked with the client in advance. If you want to know more for your specific case, please contact us or your principal.
  • My NOGEPA certificate is no longer valid, what should I do?

    If your NOGEPA certificate has expired, it is not possible to follow a NOGEPA refresher course and you will have to follow the relevant basic training again. If the certificate has expired because the student was offshore, a request for a NOGEPA repeat training can be submitted. The employer must do this for the employee. Please contact us for more information. Curious about our NOGEPA training courses? Do not hesitate and book now!
  • My OPITO certificate has expired, what do I do now?

    If your OPITO certificate has expired, it is not possible to follow an OPITO refresher course and you must follow the relevant basic training again.

Safety training for the (petro)chemical industry

Are you working in the (petro)chemical or heavy industry? And are you looking for safety training? Then you've come to the right place! In order to work safely in the (petro)chemical or heavy industry, it is very important that you have up-to-date safety knowledge so that you can prevent, recognize or resolve hazards. DELTA Safety Training offers a large number of safety and industrial training courses relevant to this sector.

At DELTA Safety Training, you can go for training courses with DELTA certification or at an additional cost with SSVV Training Guide (SOG) examination. SSVV (Stichting Samenwerken Voor Veiligheid) has established a quality mark for training courses and exams for the (petro)chemical industry. If you do not work in this sector, a DELTA certificate will suffice. This is because the content of the course and the exam are the same.

If you do not explicitly request an SOG exam, you will conclude your safety training with a DELTA exam. If you then successfully complete your exam, you will receive a DELTA certificate. In most cases, this is sufficient to have and maintain access to the work in question. Before signing up for safety training, check to see if your employer or client explicitly asks for SOG certification. Not sure if you need SOG certification? Contact us to see if an SOG certification is applicable to you.

  • Are there any trial exams available?

    No, there are no trial exams available for SOG training.
  • Can I also drive a reach truck with a forklift certificate?

    No, for the reach truck you need to obtain a reach truck certificate. Many skills are the same, but with a reach truck the trainee must take into account other risks and dangers compared to the forklift truck.
  • How long does a training course last?

    Basic training lasts 1 day (8 hours) and refresher training lasts 2 days (16 hours). The duration mentioned includes breaks.
  • Is a forklift exam difficult?

    No, the forklift truck exam is not difficult. However, you do need to prepare well. For example by taking a one-day or two-day forklift course, depending on your previous knowledge and experience.
  • What is the difference between a forklift truck and a reach truck?

    There are a number of differences between a forklift truck and a reach truck. In a forklift truck, you sit straight behind the forks; in a reach truck, you sit in a quarter turn. A reach truck has one rear wheel, while a forklift truck can also have two rear wheels. Reach trucks may only drive indoors, whereas a forklift truck with pneumatic tyres may also drive outdoors. Finally, a forklift truck has a counterweight, while a reach truck, due to a different design, does not.
  • How long is the certificate valid after the training?

    The forklift certificate is valid for 5 years (both the SOG and the DELTA forklift certificate). The expiry date is also stated on the certificate that you will receive from us once you have passed.
  • How does the application procedure for this training work?

    You can register via email or our booking form, stating your initials and surname and your date of birth. If you want to take the SOG exam, please state your VCA diploma number as well. We also need your invoice information, which you can include in your email or in the booking form. You will receive a confirmation by email within 24 hours and we look forward to seeing you at our training centre on the date in question!
  • When can a student participate in forklift training?

    For a forklift course with our own DELTA exam, you have to be at least 16 years old. If you want to take the SOG forklift exam, you must be at least 18 years old and also have a valid B-VCA, VOL-VCA or VIL-VCU certificate. For Code 95 registration you also need to be at least 16 years old.
  • How long is a forklift certificate valid?

    The forklift certificate is valid for 5 years (both the SOG and the DELTA forklift certificate). The expiry date is also stated on the certificate that you will receive from us once you have passed.
  • Is a forklift certificate mandatory?

    Strictly speaking, a forklift certificate is not compulsory. That is, nowhere in the law it is literally stated that you have to have a forklift certificate to drive a forklift. However, the Dutch Working Conditions Act states (roughly translated) that the driver has to be able to demonstrate his expertise to operate or drive such a vehicle. Since it is most practical to demonstrate that expertise by means of a valid forklift certificate, most employers choose to have their employees follow a forklift course periodically.

Being able to act appropriately in the event of an accident can be a matter of life and death. That is why it is good if you have knowledge about how to administer first aid in case of accidents. Accidents can also happen at work. Do you want to be able to help your colleagues in case of an emergency? Become an FAFS officer! We are happy to teach you the necessary knowledge about FAFS and first aid so that you can act safely and accurately right away when your help is needed in emergency situations!

Certificates

Certificates for BHV and EHBO are issued by us on behalf of various agencies.


Frequently asked questions about FAFS/EHBO

  • Are teaching materials included in the price of first aid safety training?

    For basic first aid training, a paper textbook is included in the open registration fee. A first aid refresher training does not include a paper textbook. For an additional fee you can still order a paper textbook.
  • Are teaching materials included in the price of a FAFS safety training?

    For a basic FAFS training, a paper textbook is included in the open registration fee. For a FAFS refresher training, no paper textbook is included in the open registration fee. For an additional fee you can order a paper textbook.
  • How often should I do an evacuation exercise?

    As often as necessary, but at least once a year. The permit may state that it must be done several times a year. The output must be evaluated and put on paper. We are specialised to supervise this.
  • What is the difference between BHV and EHBO?

    It is wise for everyone to follow a first aid training course. For both business and private situations. However, in a professional organisation, first aid training alone is not sufficient. The ARBO Act states that FAFS officers must be present when work is being done. FAFS consists of abbreviated first aid/lifesaving action, extinguishing a starting fire and supervising an evacuation. Because of the possible risks, consideration may be given to expanding the first aid/life-saving action part a little, for example to obtain a First Aid Oranje Kruis diploma.
  • How many FAFS officers do you need per company?

    The Working Conditions Act does not literally state how many FAFS officers are needed per company. However, the Working Conditions Act does state that businesses are obliged to take effective measures in the area of in-house emergency response. What is effective depends on the size of the business and the risks involved. The number of FAFS officers is often determined by the RI&E (Risk Inventory and Evaluation) that the business must have. For more information, see the Health and Safety Portal of the Dutch government.
  • What is the difference between NIBHV and DELTA? Is there a difference in price?

    NIBHV stands for Nederlands Instituut Bedrijfshulpverlening, a quality mark for in-house emergency response services. By taking the NIBHV exam, you have extra assurance that the FAFS training you are following is of sufficient quality. The trainers who give NIBHV training courses have a certified NIBHV instructors diploma and are allowed to give FAFS courses that are completed with the NIBHV exam. If you take the NIBHV exam, there are additional costs involved. More information can be found on the individual training pages of our NIBHV courses. The course itself is identical to the completion of the DELTA exam. The NIBHV and DELTA theoretical and practical exams make no difference in terms of content or degree of difficulty.
