Access and Egress onto Jack-up Barges

The aim of this training course is to explore best practices within these different environments with a view to ascertaining the safest possible access and egress method to/from a jack-up barge.


"Personally, I liked having the opportunity to talk and discuss technical details with the industry experts. Good to gain a greater appreciation for the complexities of the world of jack-up barges!"
"Informative, well-presented with additional information provided in course take-away's for use on certain subjects when you need more detail."
"Overall the course content was well structured and it covered the perfect level of detail.It re-focused my mind on the legislation and our legal requirements and responsibilities. Also a good insight into importance of planning during transit, not just site operations."
"The lessons learnt and leg pen analysis was really interesting. I really enjoyed when the other attendants asked questions and the conversation moved from the screen to around the table."
“Having recently moved to the Marine Construction industry, the requirement was to understand in more detail the JUB that are chartered by my company from industry suppliers. The course gave a great overview on all aspects from sizes, function, location usage factors, safety, legislation and much more. A very informative 2 days with open dialogue with course providers and fellow industry participants.”
