Description / Abstract:

This Recommended Practice applies to personnel who work offshore and represents an industry guide for training personnel in techniques for rescuing persons from the water and from survival devices in the water. It broadly identifies rescue devices, describes their operations, and presents recommendations for training personnel in their use as either a rescuer or a person being rescued. These training recommendations are designed to develop personnel rescue proficiency while minimizing an individual's exposure to injury or loss of life.

The training may be either hands-on or classroom based. Some suggested approaches are included. The Recommended Practice encourages the employer, when deciding the conditions under which training and drills are to be carried out, to fully consider all safety aspects of the training. Training should be as broad as is practical. It should emphasize those devices likely to be available to the employee at his or her assigned location.

These guidelines are general and may or may not be sufficient for all circumstances or operations. The employer should not limit or reduce the company's present program as a result of the publication of these guidelines.
