More information about the OPITO Major Emergency Management – Initial Response Training (MEMIR) (7228)

If an incident occurs the first few minutes are critical to prevent escalation and to the successful management of any emergency – whether that be Offshore OR Onshore. The Emergency Manager (EM) has the primary duty of identifying the problem, determining the correct level of response and managing the process.

Before personnel can go forward for formal assessment in Emergency Management, they first require training in handling Major Emergencies. Emergency Management requires very specific qualities and skills which are very different from those required during routine or daily management.

This training program introduces the Management Principles as the first stage of development for Emergency Managers and provides a controlled, stressful, simulated emergency environment that candidates can develop and build TEAMWORK and CONFIDENCE under Appraisal rather than Assessment conditions. This program is ‘non-fail’.

In addition to the TARGET AUDIENCE, Emergency Command Centre (ECC) and other Responding personnel such as Emergency Response Team Leaders and Control Room Operators, will find the course invaluable as an introduction to Emergency Response. More and more facilities are sending their full ECC Teams to attend this training courses together to build cohesion and teamwork, and also for individuals to gain an understanding of the Manager’s options, actions and techniques to improve their contribution to the whole Emergency Management process.
