"It is critical that crew members know how to operate the single most important piece of life saving equipment on the rig under extreme conditions."

SURVIVAL SYSTEMS TRAINING LIMITED
"The availability of lifeboat simulator technology allows SSTL to offer training options previously considered impractical or unsafe in conventional training."
Dan Latremouille, Operations Manager, Survival Systems Training Limited
"Simulator training is more realistic than conventional lifeboat training as it exposes coxswains to emergency evacuation scenarios. The lifeboat simulator allows the crew to develop ‘muscle memory’ and to be more likely to perform well in an emergency situation".
