No outstanding issues were identified by following review of incident during BST Sea Survival practical lesson
On 7th November GWO wrote to training providers to inform them of a fatality which occurred during a BST Sea Survival practical session.
Public authorities assigned to the incident subsequently confirmed that death occurred by natural causes. The authorities took no further action to investigate and confirmed that no indication of the conditions which were identified as cause of death, existed in the deceased’s medical records.
The training provider conducted its own investigation and shared the findings with the GWO Audit & Compliance Committee.
The Committee has now concluded its review of the report provided on the incident and finds that it fully answers all aspects of the incident and that there are no outstanding issues requiring further resolution.
GWO encourages stakeholders to join us next week for a webinar providing details of the new standard
