Survivex secures £500,000 training contract

Health and safety training company Survivex has signed a deal to provide a fully-outsourced Training Management Service to Hercules Offshore.

The contract, estimated to be worth in excess of £500,000 annually, is the first to be secured by the newly established Survivex TMS department. The long-term agreement will commence immediately as Hercules prepares for operations within the North Sea.

The TMS team will be responsible for producing a comprehensive training matrix, identifying skills gaps and creating individual training plans for Hercules employees. The subsequent sourcing and booking of training will then be handled by Survivex in addition to the maintenance of training records.

The formation of the department is in line with the company’s plans for growth which include the development of a number of innovative health and safety related services, as well as the expansion of the existing training portfolio.

Newly-appointed TMS Manager Sam Riley said: “Survivex has positioned itself as a leading provider of training for the energy industry, and the creation of the TMS department will allow us to add value to the service we can offer clients.  We’re looking forward to growing with Hercules and working with them to produce a competent and proficient workforce.”

Kath Cable, Director, HR North Sea added: “We are excited to be working in partnership with Survivex and making use of the extensive experience that exists within the organisation.”

Survivex was formed in 2011 and provides a range of industry accredited training courses in diverse disciplines including offshore survival, fire-fighting and emergency response, industrial skills and first aid. 

Employing in excess of 100 staff members, Survivex has the capability to deliver courses at client premises globally, both on and offshore, as well as from the world class training venue in Dyce, Aberdeen.
