Verification of competency is most effectively carried out on site, in the real work environment.

This is both cost effective for your company and convenient for your people.

Evaluating competence in high risk tasks must be done by persons with the same skill set and experience, the team at workboat safety have many years operational experience in workboats and rescue craft.

In addition to workplace experience the team have as minimum requirements qualified as Trainer and Assessor and hold NEBOSH general certificate in safety or its equivalent.

Train One, Save Many

“Over a period of time competency can deteriorate due to less exposure to the skill, stepping out of recognised procedures or the formation of bad habits, each company should ensure competency is maintained by carrying out periodic evaluation and refresher training on its small-boat crews.“
