The IMCA Resilience Awareness programme, launched online in late January 2018, is demonstrating highly encouraging downloading statistics. The first four weeks have seen over 2 000 downloads from the IMCA website and its YouTube page.
The programme was developed by leading members of IMCA eager to help those in the offshore oil and gas industry’s workforce cope and adjust to challenging issues in recent years. It is tailored specifically for the men and women working in the marine contracting industry but is freely available to all sectors for the betterment of the whole industry.
Allen Leatt, IMCA CEO, explains: “The free-to-use programme is a great example of how IMCA can step in to promote and develop a project of common interest to our membership.”
A comment from one user sums up some of the reactions IMCA has received: “the videos are very interesting and are reminding me about my own positivity and resilience that I can reach for. The programme also helped me think about how I can support my team through any change, should I need to.”
Filming took place onboard vessels of Subsea 7, Saipem and Heerema Marine Contractors. The programme is sponsored by IMCA’s board member companies: Allseas, Fugro, Heerema Marine Contractors, Saipem, Subsea 7, TechnipFMC and McDermott International, and is based on a Shell concept.
IMCA, the international association represents the vast majority of offshore marine contractors and the associated supply chain in the world, with members from over 60 countries. It publishes an extensive technical library of guidance documents on operational good practice, safety promotional materials, timely information notes and safety flashes. Its members benefit from a technical structure comprising four main divisions covering Offshore Diving, Marine, Remote Systems and ROVs, and Offshore Surveying.
