Description

OPITO Minimum Industry Safety Training (MIST) is for workers traveling offshore in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS). MIST Online is the refresher training and re-assessment for experienced offshore workers to renew their MIST certification every four years.

To renew your MIST certificate online you need a Vantage POB number and you must have worked offshore before (the UK or International). Your 4-year OPITO MIST certificate will be provided by email on completion of the course.

This three-hour eLearning course includes assessment and content on five key areas:

  • Major Accident Hazards
  • Workplace Hazards and Personal Safety
  • Risk Management
  • Control of Work
  • Helicopter Safety

The MIST online refresher course requires a 100% pass mark. This means that all the assessment questions must be answered correctly before you can receive your certificate. The technology in MIST Online will remember which questions you failed and will present you again with the related content again and a different set of questions to confirm your understanding. This process will continue until all questions are answered correctly and the course is complete.

  • Define the term 'management of change' and the consequences of poorly managed change
  • Describe the objectives of company-specific risk intervention systems, and the importance of reporting incidents to appropriate personnel and for lessons learned
  • Describe how to carry out a risk intervention and complete a risk intervention card, and the right and duty of the employee to intervene
  • Outline the principles of a safety management system
  • Recognise the safety activities and documentation associated with a safety management system
  • Explain incident and near-miss reporting and the benefits of reporting, investigating, and root cause analysis
