Slinger Signaller standard update

The GWO Slinger Signaller standard working group is making progress

The GWO Slinger Signaller Working Group met at Equinor in Great Yarmouth during January to continue progress with the new training standard.

A GWO risk assessment for slinger signaling has been completed to produce a set of learning objectives, which in turn will be analyzed using a difficulty/importance/frequency (DIF) tool.

The group is on schedule and a number of key points were approved at the UK meeting as follows

  • Terms of Reference approved
  • Learning objectives categorized and initial structure of the training will include; general safety, theory and practical

The working group is now focusing on ensuring that as much as possible of the training will be practical exercises in order to support an optimum learning retention rate

The next Working Group meeting will be in Copenhagen on 11th March
