GWO Sea Survival is part of basic safety training offshore. The course runs over one day. We offer Sea Suvival from June 2021.


The aims of this BST Sea Survival course are, by theoretical and practical training to give the participants the basic knowledge and skills to act safely and take the correct preventive actions in all aspects of offshore operations from shore to installation vessel or WTG and vice versa, both during normal operation and in an emergency in an offshore wind energy environment. This BST Sea Survival Module shall ensure that:

This BST Sea Survival Module shall ensure that:
  • The Participants can demonstrate the needed awareness of the site organisation and relevant legislation to ensure that the candidates are aware of the roles, responsibilities and rules that apply to offshore wind farms.  
  • The Participants can demonstrate the needed knowledge to understand the importance of correct clothing and conduct in an offshore wind farm environment. Further to enable skills of detecting and treating stages of cold shock, hypothermia and drowning related to exposures to the human body in an offshore wind environment. 
  • The Participants can demonstrate the needed knowledge and skills to recognise the advantages and limitations of personal LSA and PPE and usage in a correct and safe manner. The Participants can demonstrate the needed knowledge related to GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety Systems) and SAR (Search and Rescue). 
  • The Participants can demonstrate the needed skills individually and collective to enhance the chance of survival in an emergency at sea. 
  • The Participants can demonstrate the needed knowledge to recognise the hazards and risks of transfer and take the correct preventive measures into account by following procedures and use the available LSA and PPE in a correct and safe manner. 
  • The Participants can demonstrate the needed knowledge to ensure safe conduct on installations, vessels and WTG´s during normal operations and in case of emergencies and evacuation. The Participants can demonstrate the needed skills to conduct safe transfer of themselves and equipment between dock and vessel and WTG and vessel. Furthermore, to give the Participants skills to assist in MOB situations.
  • The Participants can reflect on and process their learning outcome and key takeaways from the module, aiming to achieve a high learning transfer from the module to his/her way of work. Additionally, the aim is to give the Participants the opportunity to conduct an open-minded written and oral formative evaluation of the training.
