Article Six of the Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Co-operation (OPRC) Convention 1990 sets out the requirement for operators to have in place an oil response system that includes equipment, training and exercises.
This accredited computer based training (CBT) course, accessed via the Petrofac Training Services e-learning service provider Oilennium, ensures that offshore personnel who could assume the role of On-Scene Commander (OSC) are familiar with the UK’s regulatory response and reporting requirements when responding to an unplanned oil spill to sea.
The following key elements will be covered through a series of chapters and practical exercises: • Understand and assess the situation • Mobilise response team organisation • Undertake external agency notifications • Forecast fate and track of spill and develop a response strategy and assess the resources required • Activate an operational response • Manage and control an on-going response • Deactivate a response
This eLearning course is aimed at Offshore Installation Managers (OIM) and key offshore emergency response personnel.
