Safehouse delivers training at Crosbie Training Complex in Canada

We have just delivered a training programme for Crosbie Salamis Limited’s (CSL) in-house team of industrial specialists at the Crosbie Training Complex in Newfoundland, Canada.

The training was conducted for the team working on the Terra Nova, Hibernia and Sea Rose offshore facilities, providing them with the knowledge and understanding required to install, use and care for our SAFEHOUSE habitat system and its supporting products.

Andy Fagan, Senior Project Manager at CSL, said: “Our relationship with Safehouse has afforded our clients the confidence to safely complete hot work scopes in hazardous environments. Safehouse has provided numerous training programs and innovations to guide us in meeting the needs of the Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Oil and Gas Industry.”

The annual training course, delivered for the third year running for CSL, is based on our Habitat Technician Passport, an audited system that demonstrates technician competency by technical assessment and work place evidence of their experience. Only those with the required skill and proven competency to deliver habitats in a safe, practical and professional manner can attain the Safehouse Habitat Technician Passport, and this ensures a consistent skill level internationally.

The training included the installation of habitats in the Crosbie Training Complex to emulate work scopes that needed to be sealed around pipe-work and conductors.

John McGuff, Training and Competency Manager at Safehouse, said: “Crosbie Salamis is a valued customer whose team understand the habitat concept and the need for quality training. Its years of using the SAFEHOUSE habitat in the Eastern Seaboard of Canada have greatly influenced and added to the safety culture therein, which has enabled the successful execution of numerous, safe, hot work operations within habitats, with no time loss incidents.”

He continued: “We are delighted to be supporting Crosbie Salamis to continually push the boundaries using new materials and techniques to better support their customer base, offering a more efficient and cost effective solution, which is invaluable in the current economic climate.”
