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.
