The OPITO Approved Banksman & Slinger Training Standard provides the introductory training programme for personnel wishing to become competent in Banksman and slinging activities in the oil and gas industry.

The OPITO Approved Banksman & Slinger Training

Stage 1: The initial training programme required by delegates who can then proceed to the worksite to work under supervision (awarded an OPITO Stage 1 certificate) There are no pre-requisites for Stage 1 the aim of the programme is to provide personnel, who have little or no experience of the Banksman & Slinger role with the relevant skills to works as a Banksman Slinger.

Training Outcomes:

During Stage 1 candidates will gain an awareness of the variety of tasks and the hazards to be found in lifting operations on oil and gas installations. They will be required to demonstrate a sufficient level of knowledge, understanding and skill in the following key areas.

All Delegates will be required to sign a self-declaration of medical fitness form.

UNIT 1 INTRODUCTION TO LIFTING OPERATIONS

• Element 1.1 Regulations and safety issues

• Element 1.2 Introduction to Lifting Roles & Equipment

• Element 1.3 Prepare for The Lift

• Element 1.4 Carry Out the Lift

• Element 1.5   Restoring the Work Area

UNIT 2 THE BANKSMAN’S ROLES

• Element 2.1 Banksman duties

• Element 2.2 Communications and visibility

UNIT 3 SLINGING OPERATIONS

• Element 3.1 Principles of slinging

UNIT 4 PRACTICAL EXERCISES

• Element 4.1 The role of the Banksman & Slingers in a planned lift

Following successful completion of the OPITO Banksman & Slinger Training the delegate can proceed to the workplace to work under direct supervision of a competent person.

STAGE 2: WORKPLACE TRAINING

In this second stage, the delegate will record his/her lifting activities and complete a list of prescribed tasks.

A logbook to record completion of the prescribed tasks will be given to the candidate by the training provider along with the OPITO approved Stage 1 Training certificate.

Work under supervision of a competent person

The logbook should accompany the trainee Banksman & Slinger to the worksite so he/she can complete the required tasks under supervision of a competent person.

Witnessed and signed

Each lift must occur on different dates and be signed off by the competent person responsible for the lift and the delegate Banksman or Slinger’s supervisor.

Approval of the entire document

On completion of the logbook, the entire document should be approved by a Senior Employment Representative.

Two years for Stage 2

The delegate Banksman and Slinger has up to two years from the date of his/her Stage 1 certificate to complete the worksite requirements outlined in this logbook and to be signed off by a Senior Employment Representative in order to progress to the Stage 3 Banksman & Slinger assessment.

Medical Declaration

Candidate will undertake practical assessments that will involve work of a physical nature and will be asked to sign a declaration of their fitness before undertaking the practical exercises.

OVERVIEW

Face Fit Testing is a method used for checking that a tight fitting face piece matches the persons facial features and seals adequately to the wearers face. It also helps to ensure that poorly fitting face pieces are not selected for use. An inadequate fit will significantly reduce the protection provided to the wearer. Face Fit Testing can also be used to ensure that an individual knows how to properly put on and wear the respirator.

AIMS  AND STRUCTURE

The aim of this course is to teach everyone that is required to wear any type of Respiratory Protective Equipment in the workplace, that they must be face fit tested to ensure correct fitting and protection against substances potentially hazardous to health.

CLOTHING REQUIRED

Casual and comfortable clothing to be worn.

OVERVIEW

This course is designed to introduce delegates to the principles and equipment involved in modern working at height systems. In the UK, in the 5-year period from 1996 to 2001, we have suffered 400 deaths and 28,000 major injuries as a result of falls from a height. 

*The number of workers fatally injured as a result from falling from a height rose from 52 in 2006/07 to 58 in 2007/08, an increase of 12%. *Major injuries to employees due to falling from a height accounted for 12% (3,235) of all major injuries in 2007/08.
Many of these accidents could have been avoided through awareness training and appropriate equipment selection.

This course is the foundation for a 3-part scheme, the elements of which can either be taken separately or timed to run consecutively.

NSL has a team of more than 30 Instructors / Skills Assessors, most of whom are qualified and capable of carrying out Crane Operator assessments in accordance with BS ISO 15513 and BS 7121.

Assessment Procedure

The assessment begins with a questionnaire. This enables the assessor to confirm that the Crane Operator’s knowledge is adequate. The Operator is also interviewed to assess their experience on the specific type of crane they operate. The Assessor then observes the Operator performing various practical exercises according to the skills level they are being assessed against. Observation is from Deck Level and where possible, also from the Cab / Operator Level. Feedback is given during the assessment, and also at the end during the debrief, when the Operator is informed of the result. The assessment is only completed when every relevant unit of the standard has been covered.

Typical elements covered:

Basic Deck Operations Under Supervision - Stage 1

• Handling containers, tubulars and pipe-work, loads with an offset C of G
• Hand signals and radio communications
• Full pre-shift inspection of the crane, knowledge of company procedures, knowledge of the crane, knowledge of basic slinging including sling angles and tensions

Deck Operations Unsupervised - Stage 2

• Handling containers, tubulars and pipe-work, loads with an offset C of G
• Hand signals and radio communications
• Full pre-shift inspection of the crane, knowledge of company procedures, knowledge of the crane, knowledge of basic slinging including sling angles and tensions. Also, knowledge of emergency operating systems and procedures

Deck Operations Unsupervised And Supply Vessel Lifting Operations - Stage 3

• Handling containers, tubulars and pipe-work, loads with an offset C of G
• Hand signals and radio communications
• Full pre-shift inspection of the crane, knowledge of company procedures, knowledge of the crane, knowledge of basic slinging including sling angles and tensions, knowledge of emergency operating systems and procedures
• The operator would also be required to demonstrate both theoretical and practical experience of; dynamic loading, sea states, bulk hose operations, wind-speeds and related company and crane operating limitations. Also, all operations regarding loading and unloading of supply vessels
