Amendment: 3 (Jan 2020)


The aim of the Travel Safely by Boat (TSbB) supplementary training standard is to equip personnel traveling/transferring by boat to work offshore on how to safely embark and disembark a personnel transfer basket.

The objectives of the TSbB supplementary training are that delegates will be able to:

(a) Understand the risks, safety procedures and safe working practices in relation to transfer of personnel by basket

(b) Practice and demonstrate correct method of boat transfer using personnel transfer basket

Target audience:

The Travel Safely by Boat initial training programme is designed to meet supplementary training and assessment requirements for personnel who are required to be competent in travelling and transferring by boat to an offshore oil and gas installation using personnel transfer basket.

Delegate pre-requisites:

This supplementary training programme may be undertaken concurrently or consecutively with the Travel Safely by Boat Initial or Further Training programmes or at any time during the validity period of the current Travel Safely by Boat initial/further certificate. Therefore, delegates must have successfully completed the Travel Safely by Boat Initial or Further training programme prior to undertaking the supplementary training and possess a valid Travel Safely by Boat Initial or Further training certificate.


For the Travel Safely by Boat Supplementary Training, certificates issued to delegates must state the type of personnel transfer basket used to which the certificate relates (i.e. rigid or collapsible). The expiry of this certificate must coincide with the expiry of the certificate relating to the initial/further Travel Safely by Boat training.
