22 Sept 2015 : Category A EBS in BOSIET/HUET/FOET

https://www.stepchangeinsafety.net/news ... ethuetfoet" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

"The HSE has issued an exemption to the Diving at Work Regulations which allows the new Category A EBS jacket to be used in the water for the BOSIET/HUET/FOET training courses. This means that the industry workgroup can now reconvene to progress the standard review, with the aim of using the equipment in water training by January 2016. For more information, please see the October issue of Tea Shack News, due to arrive in offices and heliports in the next few weeks."

"Next Steps
HSE’s Chief Inspector of Diving will meet OPITO approved training providers and stakeholders on 1st October to address any remaining concerns they may have. Thereafter the Industry Work Group will re-convene on 9th October to address the further requirements imposed by the conditions of the exemption and complete the review of the BOSIET/HUET/FOET standards with a target go-live date of 1st January 2016."

NB - Please read report in full ./thumbsup..

22 Dec 2015 : BOSIET/FOET Cat-A EBS Update

Oil & Gas UK, Step Change in Safety, OPITO, IADC and the trade unions have agreed a joint industry statement on the current status of BOSIET/FOET Category A EBS Training:

“After extensive engagement with industry, regulators, training providers and workforce representatives, agreement has been reached on the new BOSIET/FOET standard to be applied across the UK sector. This new standard, which will be introduced early in 2016, will meet the manufacturer's minimum training requirements specified by the CAA. The standard will involve 'dry' CAT-A EBS training with in-water HUET breath hold exercises using the Survitec Mk50 life jacket. This will remove the Lapp jacket and re-breather from the existing BOSIET/FOET standard for personnel travelling offshore in the UKCS.

In the longer term, all industry stakeholders will work towards providing in-water training exercises using the Survitec Mk50 life jacket and Compressed air CAT-A EBS equipment.”
