Tropical HUET – Emergency Breathing Systems Training (THUET-EBS)
- This course is designed to complement initial onshore safety and emergency response
training and assessment for personnel traveling to an offshore oil and gas installation
by helicopter (in a warm water tropical environment) when issued with an Emergency
Breathing System (EBS). People that wish to attend this program have to be in possession
of a valid TBOSIET or T-FOET certificate. The THUET-EBS course can also be attended
as an add-on to the T-BOSIET or T-FOET. When added to the T-BOSIET it will be integrated
in the HUET module and thus no extra training day is required. Refresher training
is recommended every 2 years.
What is the EBS?
The EBS is designed to increase survival time during a helicopter emergency, prior
to escape from a submerged cabin. The Air Pocket came into service in 1996, and
is well proven. It is in service with major oil companies worldwide. Training in
the use of EBS is required for working offshore in Malaysia, Australia, Brunei and
many other countries around the world.
The EBS comes in two types, the Airpocket Plus (APP) and the LAP-Jacket. The LAP-Jacket
consists of the APP integrated in an aviation lifejacket. Samson Tiara has both
types of available for training. The EBS has been developed to address the “Cold
Shock” symptom, an involuntary response to immersion in cold water, which results
in gasping for air, and to support the user during the underwater escape from a
helicopter which has ditched in the sea. The re-breathers are simple to use, but
practical skill training is required. The breathing bag is generously over-sized
to contain the air charge plus any breath from breath-hold, without producing over-pressure.
