Offshore teams consisting of technicians, contractors and operations and maintenance specialists will be required to undertake a variety of tasks such as routine maintenance and repair work undertaken at height and may involve heavy lifting.
Some tasks will require specialised equipment, which may require safely transported and lifting once at site. This may also include transferring heavy equipment from the shoreline to offshore locations, which may provide a manual handling logistical challenge.
Working at Height
Any work undertaken at height carries a certain element of risk. Therefore, as employers or employees, we have a duty of care to ensure all the adequate precautions have been put in place for any tasks that need to be completed at height and that the work is undertaken by personnel, who clearly display the competencies, and industry-specific training accreditations to complete at height tasks in a controlled and safe manner.
The GWO Manual Handling element of this module will reinforce positive manual handling techniques, considerations when lifting and moving objects and safe working practices to help reduce the potential risk of injury resulting from incorrect manual handling techniques by assessing the risks and planning the lifting task. Delegates will also need to clearly understand the TILE principle, discuss how o assess and control risks and explain how control measures reduce the risk of injury.
