IJUBOA has piloted a two/three day training course to develop the knowledge of those involved in the procuring and management of Jack up barges. Titled “Managing safe, legal and effective jack-up operations” its purpose is to ensure there is greater understanding of the range of risks associated with the safe deployment of a Jack up barge and a corresponding understanding of how to manage them.
The course is suitable for:
- Middle and senior managers in organisations that operate jack up barges
- Contract managers and other senior representatives of organisations that procure jack up barge services
- People involved in the design of jack up barges
The course is designed primarily for civil engineers educated to degree level who need to:
- Apply their knowledge of engineering principles in a Jack up barge context
- Refresh their knowledge and understanding of jack up barge operations
The course covers the full range of risks associated with operating a jack up barge and includes:
- Introduction and overview of the Jack up Barge operation and the main risks and most common accidents associated with it
- Introduction to the principles of Safety Management (SHEQ) and their application to the Jack up barge industry
- Risk management by type:
- Jack up foundations – seabed conditions; site assessment; applied geotechnics
- Stability – centres of gravity; movement of loads; lifting operations; applied mechanical engineering
- Environmental conditions – waves, tides, tidal current, weather
- Relationship with client – boundaries of responsibilities; resolution of differences; effective communication
- Relationship with barge master – boundaries of responsibilities; their need for line management and specialist support; their training and development needs; effective communication
The course consists of a mixture of presentations, discussions and group work projects supported by a comprehensive workbook. The pilot was delivered over two days but analysis of learner feedback suggests that three or even four days would be a more appropriate duration.
This course was successfully piloted in April 2012 and received good feedback. Future availability will depend on demand – please contact IJUBOA to register an interest in a future course.
