UK based Marine safety and survival specialists, BCB Marine, will unveil a survival kit at this year’s Seawork Show in Southampton (22-24 May, 2012) www.seawork.com
BCB Marine’s offshore survival kit is packed with essential first aid and survival essentials including distress whistles, sterile gauze swabs red lightsticks and emergency rations.
BCB Marine’s Sales Manager, Jonathan Delf, said: “Companies are prepared to take greater risks to find and exploit the world’s dwindling natural resources to meet the world’s ever-growing energy needs and this means that they increasingly operate in areas of increased risk hundreds of nautical miles off the mainland.
“In an emergency time is critical. It could take a while before search and rescue teams can get to workers who are in a jam on these isolated infrastructures. Our offshore survival kit which comes in various sizes is designed to provide workers with quick and easy access to first aid and survival equipment which buys them time and helps rescue teams get to them. The Offshore survival kit enables them to stay safe, be seen and be heard when they need it the most.”
