OPITO launches digital delivery of safety-critical oil and gas training to global industry

A digital transformation of oil and gas safety-critical emergency response training is set to save the industry more than a million hours of training time per year, driving time and cost efficiencies across the sector, a gathering of world-wide industry leaders heard today.

OPITO, the global, not-for-profit skills body for the energy industry, today launched the digital delivery of the Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (BOSIET) at its annual safety and competence conference (OSCC) in Kuala Lumpur, addressing the sector’s call for regulated online learning with world-class credibility that delivers efficiencies.​


With over 150,000 people undertaking the three day primary emergency response BOSIET training in the last year, the online option will now be offered alongside the practical element as an alternative to classroom based learning. The online modules are completed remotely at a learner’s own pace and location. With only one day required for the practical training, it offers the potential to give more than a million hours of training time each year back to industry and reduce travel and accommodation costs.

The training is widely regarded in the industry as the ‘must have’ certification to enable a worker to go offshore and includes helicopter survival, emergency first aid, sea survival, fire-fighting and lifeboat training.

Acknowledged as the best in the world, OPITO standards have been adopted by major international and national oil and gas companies in over 45 countries. The digital delivery of BOSIET is a long-term, demand led initiative to create a change in workforce training through innovation. The skills body has worked with digital partner Atlas Knowledge on behalf of industry to develop the interactive training featuring video and animations.
