NHC has developed an ‘Introduction to Subsea Isolations Course’ alongside a major oil & gas operator in response to concerns about the lack of training in the high-risk area of underwater isolations.

During 2013, NHC conducted a study into diver safety, looking particularly at reports of diving incidents regarding unplanned pressure releases and subsequent injuries during projects. NHC Managing Director, David Smith, presented a successful paper highlighting statistics and details of past injuries and incidents which many feel, with better knowledge, could have been prevented. It is hoped the course will provide all personnel involved in the planning and delivery of subsea projects with the knowledge and ability to help minimise risks; enhancing diver safety when working near potential sources of stored energy.

Staff and associates of the company who work directly in the field were invited to attend four trial courses at the NHC where their invaluable feedback helped shape the course content and schedule.

NHC is confident that the course provides project members including diving supervisors, subsea engineers and diving technical authorities with a relevant and effective learning experience and is now accepting bookings for upcoming courses.
