FOET with EBS (Code 5858)
Further Offshore Emergency Training with Emergency Breathing System

Target group
This training programme FOET (with EBS) (OPITO code 5858) is designed to meet the further offshore safety and emergency response training requirements for personnel new (or returning) to the offshore oil and gas industry who will be supplied with a rebreather emergency breathing system (EBS) during offshore helicopter travel.
Objectives of the course
The aim of the FOET (with EBS) is to provide the delegates with the opportunity to practise and demonstrate emergency response skills which are not possible to practise during drills, exercises and emergency training offshore.

The objectives of the FOET (with EBS) are that delegates will be able to:
  • Demonstrate, in a simulated environment, that they can use the safety equipment and follow procedures in preparing for and during helicopter emergencies – with particular focus on escaping from a helicopter following ditching.
  • Demonstrate that they can use basic firefighting equipment effectively, and use selfrescue techniques in low visibility and completely obscured visibility situations e.g. smoke filled areas.
  • Demonstrate that they can perform basic first aid.

Course contents
1.Helicopter Safety and Escape

Helicopter Travel and Escape techniques
Training staff will explain:
  • The principles of emergency breathing system equipment
  • The duration of emergency breathing systems
  • Flotation dynamics associated with emergency breathing system equipment
  • Use of the Personal Locator Beacon (PLB)

Training staff will explain and demonstrate:
  • Donning and operation of Emergency Breathing System (EBS)
  • Actions in preparation for a helicopter ditching and emergency landing including brace positions for the range of seating locations and harness types.

Delegates will practice and demonstrate:
  • Donning an aviation transit suit, aviation lifejacket and emergency breathing system (EBS) equipment
  • Conducting integrity checks of the EBS equipment
  • Deploying operating and breathing from the EBS equipment at atmospheric pressure in dry conditions
  • Deploying operating and breathing from the EBS in a pool utilising personal air (delegate must experience positive and negative pressure created by body orientation in the water)
  • Actions to take in preparation for a helicopter ditching
  • Deploying EBS equipment, operating a push out window (on instruction from aircrew) and carrying out a dry evacuation via a nominated emergency exit to an aviation liferaft from a helicopter ditched on water
  • Assisting others where possible and carrying out initial actions, to include mooring lines, deploying the sea anchor, raising the canopy and raft maintenance) and secondary actions, to include posting lookouts, activating the radio beacons and first aid equipment, on boarding the aviation liferaft
  • Escape, through a window opening which is under water, from a partially submerged helicopter (deploying, operating and breathing from the EBS equipment but without operating a push out window)
  • Escape, through a window opening which is under water from a partially submerged helicopter (deploying, operating and breathing from the EBS equipment and operating a push out window)
  • Escape, through a window opening which is under water, from a capsized helicopter (*deploying and operating the EBS equipment on surface prior to capsize and operating a push out window), inflating a lifejacket, deploying the spray visor and carrying out in-water procedures (including individual and group survival techniques) – swimming, HELP, towing, chain, huddle and circle
  • Boarding of an aviation liferaft from the water
  • Being rescued by one of the recognised methods available offshore.

2. Firefighting and Self Rescue

Basic Firefighting and Self-Rescue Techniques
Following explanations and demonstration by training staff delegates will practise and demonstrate:

  • Raising the alarm on discovery of a fire
  • The operation of hand held portable fire extinguishers in extinguishing Class A or Class B fires
  • Self-rescue techniques with a smoke hood or partial blindfold from areas where delegate visibility is reduced
  • Self-rescue techniques with a smoke hood from areas where delegate visibility is completely obscured
  • Small group escape techniques with a smoke hood from areas where delegate visibility is completely obscured, concluding with a muster exercise

3. Emergency First Aid

Emergency First Aid Techniques
Training staff will explain:
  • First aid arrangements
  • Types of injuries
  • Prioritising Actions
  • Immediate first aid actions prior to the arrival of the medic/first-aider

Training staff will explain and demonstrate:
  • Raising the alarm
  • Assessing the situation
  • Checking the area is safe
  • Checking airways, breathing and industry recognised first aid practice
  • Putting casualty in the recovery position.

Delegate will practise and demonstrate:
  • Raising the alarm
  • Assessing the situation
  • Checking area is safe
  • Industry recognised first aid practice
