The aim of the BOSIET is to introduce delegates to the specific safety issues and regimes relevant to offshore installations, and to equip them with the basic emergency response knowledge and skills for travelling to and from offshore installations by helicopter.
As a result of the Civil Aviation Report’s (CAP1145) recommendations, the UK BOSIET/FOET/HUET with Compressed Air Emergency Breathing System (CA-EBS) training standard was introduced in February 2016.
Since the launch of this standard, OPITO have continued to engage with various stakeholders to ensure that the UK BOSIET/FOET/HUET (with CA-EBS) Standard meets industry’s current requirements.
There has been a growing demand for CA-EBS training globally. This demand means that there is now a requirement for CA-EBS training on an international scale, and not only within the UK. Various multinational operating companies have an aim to introduce CA-EBS on their flights globally and require a standard which can be readily recognised from a global perspective. As a result, the UK reference from the formally known UK BOSIET/FOET/HUET (with CA-EBS) has been removed. The standard will be known as the BOSIET/FOET/HUET (with CA-EBS) from Monday, June 20th 2016.
The updated Standard title does not affect the standard content and there are no further changes to report. This change does not affect delegates who have undertaken training with the previous title name – their certification will remain valid until the expiry date stated.
This update will ensure consistency of training on a much wider level and supports OPITO’s aim to build global standards to support the oil and gas industry.
In the longer term, all industry stakeholders in the UK will work towards providing in-water training exercises using CA-EBS equipment.
The Tropical HUET training programme will prepare delegates that intend to travel to and from offshore oil and gas installations and vessels by helicopter in a tropical environment by providing specific training in pre-flight and in-flight requirements and to equip delegates with the basic emergency response knowledge and skills required in the event of a helicopter emergency – with specific focus on escaping from a helicopter following ditching and sea survival techniques.
RoSPA have a solution for any organisation offering Driver Training which varies from the lowest level where RoSPA approve the course that a client offers, right through to the highest level whereby RoSPA can accredit the course and trainers along with the process and facilities that an organisation uses. Please see the matrix below which is designed to give clients an insight into what would be required to meet each level of accreditation.
Training Centres generate a temporary certificate (valid for 90 days) which is issued to candidates upon successful completion of the examination. Candidates will need to achieve 70% or more in all the components they have been nominated for, in order to receive a temporary certificate. IWCF will issue the full original certificates within 90 days from the examination date providing that all the required documentation has been submitted by the accredited centre. Level 2 certificates are valid for 5 years and Level 3 or 4 certificates are valid for 2 years.
On completion of the IMIST course you will be awarded an OPITO IMIST Certificate. The Atlas-approved Invigilation Centre, where you have undertaken the programme, will present you with this validated personal certificate upon successful completion of the course. Please look after this certificate as proof of completion of OPITO IMIST.
IMIST (International Minimum Industry Safety Training) is an OPITO standard which supports the global Oil and Gas Industry to meet safety initiative targets. The IMIST e-learning programme has been developed to provide a new global standard for Health and Safety training, which will provide a comprehensive and consistent level of training across the world and enhance workforce safety and compliance.The IMIST standard ensures that workers have the necessary safety awareness and training to reduce risk and ultimately reduce the number of incidents.
