Personal safety for offshore vessels

As part of our ongoing modules for the offshore industry, this is a very important safety introduction to what people should know and be prepared for on their first visit onboard. The module gives anyone going onto any type of offshore vessel, the basic knowledge to allow them to live and work safely at all times. The module details the safety information which should be learned on first boarding a vessel, and what to do if an alarm sounds. The risks and typical injuries found on offshore vessels are highlighted, and there is information on how to prevent accidents from happening.
