“To be prepared for the unthinkable to happen requires competence, skills and ownership of those involved in the company’s emergency preparedness organization. Oceaneering have put down significant efforts to have a robust and effective emergency preparedness system to manage the operations we are involved in.
Together with several other companies we agreed to participate in an emergency preparedness exercise held and managed by Total Safety. Total Safety took great ownership in the planning phase of the exercise and coordinated the events to take place in the actual exercise in a good manner.
During the exercise our emergency response team was put to the test for five hours. The sequences of events that took place were very realistic. Messages given to us by clients, media and Next of Kin were all planned and performed by Total Safety. Oceaneering was very pleased to see how realistic Total Safety was able to make this exercise.
Follow up after the exercise was managed well. Total Safety took part in, and gave us valid feedback to help us constantly improve areas within our emergency preparedness where we may see the need to improve. We have annual continual plans to drill our emergency preparedness organization, and we can strongly recommend having emergency drills in cooperation with Total Safety”

We have learnt to know ELU (Emergency Log Unit) as a tool developed with an uncompromising focus on core functions and user-friendliness, which is what we were looking for when assessing different solutions. The entrance level to the software is low. It is an intuitive tool – easy to apply, operate and restart, which is clearly a benefit to keep operating skills fresh. This enables a swift and consistent transition to emergency response mode, ensuring precious time and resources are not unnecessarily tied up in the initial mobilizing phase. These features, combined with agreeable low costs in a market focusing on cost efficiency and smart solutions, add high value to the software. ELU is our preferred logging tool for possible crisis situations. It enables our Emergency Response Team to maintain a robust and sustainable operational level throughout a challenging situation – to the benefit for all Ocean Installer employees, our clients and stakeholders around our various locations worldwide.
Tilbakemelding for vårt arbeid hos Apply Sørco
"Apply Sørco inngikk en avtale med Total Safety i august 2016. I løpet av høsten 2016 har vi i regi av Total Safety gjennomført opplæring og trening av beredskapsledere, loggere, HR/pårørende kontakter og strategisk ledelse inkl. mediahåndtering. Vi har forbedret vårt beredskapsplanverk og har gjennomført flere øvelser med assistanse fra Total Safety. Vi opplever at Total Safety har meget god kompetanse og erfaring til å gjennomføre krevende og realistiske scenarier for uønskede hendelser og skadeomfang, henvendelser fra pårørende og media samt effektiv kommunikasjon både internt og eksternt mot kunder og underleverandører.
Etter at vi installerte ELU software for beredskap- og krisehåndtering har vi fått en effektiv måte å varsle ulike team i vår beredskapsorganisasjon samt et godt verktøy til å håndtere hendelser. ELU gjør at alle involverte parter i beredskapsarbeidet raskt og effektivt får status på utviklingen i hendelsen samt hvilke tiltak som iverksettes. Muligheten til å koble seg opp mot ELU både via web og app gir økt fleksibilitet og at en lettere kan bidra i beredskapsarbeidet selv med stor geografisk spredning av ansatte og ledelse. Pårørendesenteret i ELU software har gitt oss nye muligheter til å sikre en god håndtering av pårørende beredskap.
Alle som er involvert i beredskapsarbeidet i Apply Sørco opplever at treningen og øvelsene sammen med Total Safety har skapt en økt trygghet til å håndtere sin rolle i beredskapsarbeidet men også et bedre samspill mellom de ulike teamene i beredskapsorganisasjonen. Apply Sørco har i dag en beredskapsorganisasjon som er bærekraftig. Det er stor grad av engasjement og dedikasjon, noe som gjør at alle bidrar mot et felles mål og en proaktiv beredskapshåndtering."
