OPITO approved Basic Offshore Safety Induction & Emergency Training (BOSIET) from 24th to 26th June.
We have been blessed with wonderful weather here in Tobata Kitakyushu while we have been hearing all the news about extreme weather such as hails , heavy rain that flooded street in Tokyo. Opito approved 3day BOSIET training course, started on June 24, was held. 14 delegates from 9 companies participated in this training course. Delegates of different age, gender and position gathered here for the training which provided good place for them to exchange their information.
We’d like to show you a scene from the sea survival training this time.
If you drifted away in a life jacket, you must let the rescuers know where you were. There are things you can do to be found by them from sky such as a helicopter. Drifters gathered to make a circle, becoming a larger target for the help from sky.

Then, get better attention by adding some dynamic movement like spreading out to make a larger circle then back to smaller circle, kicking to create splash when forming a larger circle is also effective.

We’d like to introduce some of many comments from delegates.

“ I was able to train intensively with a sense of tension, as I was told to imagine real situation. However practical training, which I had been worried, was performed safe and sound, thanks to thorough explanation and appropriate advice. Throughout this training I was impressed how skilled trainers were.”
