Working in the offshore oil and gas industry can be rewarding and challenging. One of the experiences that can be particularly challenging, especially for new workers, is transferring to and from vessels. This is usually accomplished by utilizing gangways, swing ropes, or personnel baskets. These devices have been used by the industry for many years, and, with training, they can be used very safely.

This course focuses on the safe use of swing ropes for the purposes of personnel transfer. It includes information and advice for transfer personnel and assisting personnel during the operation.
