SVITZER Safety Services offers ISO 9001:2008-certified courses in everything from basic first aid to highly specialised maritime emergency response. A wide range of consultancy and evaluation services are also on offer, from HSE incident investigation and implementation of new safety systems / equipment to on-site analysis of safety performance.

While offshore courses (basic safety) are by far the most popular, wind turbine and ERRV (fast rescue craft) are also in popular demand.

Industry-certified offshore training courses

The instructors at SVITZER are qualified professionals with extensive practical experience within their fields of expertise, and the courses are developed in accordance with relevant industry standards; i.e. IMO (STCW) and OPITO.

Internationally certified offshore courses and training

SVITZER offers a wide range of expertise within health and safety, in order to assist the oil and gas industry and wind turbine industry in improving the safety performance and efficiency of their operations.

SVITZER instructors give the delegates basic knowledge and training so they are well prepared in the event of a firefighting situation.

Safe personnel-transfer blankets, mattresses and stretcher harnesses

SVITZER continuously endeavours to improve the safety and quality of its services, which means that, from time to time, SVITZER is not satisfied with the products available on the market.

SVITZER is therefore continually improving its equipment through close collaboration with its development team and suppliers. The work often involves making adjustments to existing products. However, in some cases SVITZER chooses to develop its own products and start production.

Currently, SVITZER can offer the following safety equipment:

  • Safe personnel transfer baskets
  • Sleep well mattresses
  • Safe stretcher harnesses

Offshore safety equipment and support

External and internal factors can necessitate the acquisition of new safety equipment. SVITZER can provide advisory throughout the process. Your organisation can benefit through:
