Safe welding enclosure

Hot work on offshore installations is a serious matter and will often result in "shut-in time", but with the right equipment the "shut-in time" can be kept at a minimum. The HAZTEC safe welding enclosure allows the operator to carry on as usual.

Fire fighting simulation

Falck Safety Services has fire grounds ideal for simulating a wide range of situations, ranging from small fires extinguished with handheld equipment to large-scale blazes and high-pressure gas fires. Among the course modules available are fighting fires in planes, ships, houses, helicopter decks, helicopters, gas installations and galleys.

Experienced training staff

Instructors at Falck Safety Services centres are multi-skilled, qualified and are among the best in the industry. Many have experience from the offshore sector, maritime sector or armed forces. The right blend of on-the-job and theoretical experience enables them to deliver training that closely mirrors real emergency situations.

Mobile and deployable autonomous training system

The Falck Safety Services MTU concept is an OPITO approved, fully functioning autonomous training solution designed to be fully mobile and rapidly deployable in urban as well as remote locations. The MTU supports the following courses: helicopter underwater egress training (HUET), sea survival, fire and confined space training, offshore industry lifeboat training, and other client-specific training.

If deployed close to a harbour the lifeboat can be removed and launched into the harbour, which makes it possible to provide coxswain training as well.

Falck Safety Services facilities are purpose-built to create a total illusion of real-life environments. The theoretical parts of our courses are held in modern classrooms equipped with the latest audio-visual aids. Practical training is provided in a variety of training simulators such as:

  • Training ships
  • Launching installations for rescue capsules
  • Free-fall launching towers
