As the North Sea energy sector faces its most significant downturn in decades, one Aberdeen based service company is setting its sights on bucking the trend and growing the global arm of its business.
Health and safety training provider, Survivex, has focused on the attainment of internationally recognized course accreditations throughout 2015. Following recent awards from NEBOSH and the American Petroleum Institute (API), the organization now announces new approvals from the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC).
“Our focus throughout this year has been about improving and expanding our course offering for our international clients. Whilst our internal courses have been developed by our team of technical experts and take into account legislation and industry best practice, the importance of accreditations cannot be underestimated,” said Andrew Green, Survivex CEO.
IADC’s Drilling Industry Training Accreditation Scheme (DIT) aims to regulate courses delivered by different providers, to ensure course objectives are met and that suitably qualified and experienced individuals deliver that training.
Accreditation also includes an audit of the training provider’s management systems procedures by a technical review panel as well as the examination of course contents.
Twelve internally developed Survivex courses now carry the IADC DIT stamp of approval. These include fire extinguisher training, forklift truck operator, COSHH, PUWER, offshore crane operator and rigging and lifting amongst others.
