What is HUET Certification?

    Helicopter Underwater Egress Training in the United States, and Helicopter Underwater Escape Training in most other countries, (often abbreviated HUET, pronounced hue-wet, hue-way or you-way) is training provided to offshore oil and gas industry staff and military personnel who are regularly transported to and from facilities by helicopters over water. As the name implies, the purpose is to prepare them for emergency exit in the case of a crash landing over water. The training involves simulated sinking in a pool while rotating the training module upside down and focuses students on bracing for impact, identifying primary and secondary exit points, avoiding smoke inhalation, surfacing for air, and head count. The conventional simulators simulate an immersed cabin rotating around single axis, usually lengthwise.

    Most trainees find that the repetition of predictable submerging and controlled rotation does not offer any additional improvement to their survival skills. While the traditional simulators can only be turned left or right in the horizontal plane, the new generation simulators can turn 360° in both the horizontal and vertical planes.

What is BOSIET Certification?

    BOSIET stands for basic offshore safety induction and emergency training,[1] a course created to assist in meeting the initial onshore safety training, emergency response training and assessment requirements for personnel new to the offshore oil and gas industry.

    Included in the course is helicopter survival, emergency first aid, sea survival, fire fighting, self rescue and TEMPSC (lifeboat) training.

What is HYDROGEN SULPHIDE (H2S) certification?

  • H2S is found widely in the industry and it is very important to warn the workers of its dangers or their exposure to same.

    H2S is classed as a chemical asphyxiant, similar to carbon monoxide and cyanide gases. Rescue and resuscitation in case of exposure needs to be properly understood by all. This course address the dangers involved in exposure to H2S and the dos and donts associated with same

    The objective of this course is to provide participants with an awareness of the dangers associated with Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) gas and the appropriate measures to be taken should it be encountered.
    • Characteristics of H2S;
    • Symptoms of H2S poisoning;
    • Exposure limits and toxicity levels;
    • Methods of detecting and monitoring H2S;
    • Operation and maintenance of breathing apparatus;
    • Response strategy;
    • Rescue techniques;
    • Resuscitation.
