EPIC POB Falck Mustering System

Falck Safety Services adds specialist mustering technology to crisis management training capabilities

​A leading safety training, management and consultancy firm has strengthened its major emergency management (MEM) services with the addition of a specialist mustering software system.
Falck Safety Services UK (Falck), which has 35 training centres across the world, is one of the first training providers globally to use a Persons on Board (POB) and mustering technology system through its portfolio of crisis management training solutions.

The specialist automated system, which was designed by global POB and mustering specialists, EPIC, was specifically designed to meet the needs of the oil and gas industry for use on floating accommodation semi-subs, fixed installations, onshore refineries and offshore drilling installations. The software ensures that operational personnel’s locations are monitored at all times in the event of an emergency.
Falck UK runs a number of OPITO accredited emergency management courses including Control Room Operator Emergency Response (CRO), OIM Controlling Emergencies and Major Emergency Management (MEM) Initial Response training delivered in-house at the company’s facility in Aberdeen. The organisation also offers consultancy support for organisations who are looking to develop, review or test emergency response and crisis management plans or procedures, providing resource recommendations and expert training on and offsite within all levels of businesses.
The firm also recently attained OPITO accreditation for Plant Manager/Incident Commander Initial Response Training and Initial Assessment, and the specialist mustering technology is instrumental as the firm enhances and builds on its specialist range of crisis management services.
Operations manager for crisis management at Falck, Alan McIntyre, said: “As a leading safety training, management and consultancy firm, we are dedicated to building on our range of Crisis Management services, and strive to enhance our expert offering to meet our client’s needs.
“Using the specialist software, which was designed by EPIC, enables us to ensure our training offers delegates real life scenarios, demonstrating how all personnel would be accounted for in an emergency situation using the most up to date technology available on the market.
“Broadening our range of services further strengthens our positioning as a leading global safety training provider, placing us at the forefront of industry digital advancements.”
EPIC Sales Director, Dave Gordon said: “EPIC are delighted to be in partnership with Falck Safety Services who are a recognised leading global training provider to the onshore and offshore industries.  With Falck having now installed the EPIC Smart-Trac electronic POB Management ​system, this shall provide them the flexibility to bring new dynamics with new technology to their training programmes.
“The market leading EPIC Smart-Trac system is an electronic method for the mustering and evacuation of personnel as well as giving management POB and bridge control. The system can rapidly identify missing personnel giving visibility to offshore management as well as the onshore emergency response teams in “real time” with 100% accurate information”.
