Hi guys, just about to start offshore, any offshore sparks on here?

Not actually working on rig equipment, been contracted by an agency to rewire a OPERATIONAL rig in stages with a maintenance company?

Expect a lot of SWA and 3 phase?

The mind boggles!

I remember someone on this ere forum saying you couldn't take Knives on a rig....

But that just about sums up my total knowledge of offshore! :p :p

We do have an Oil Rig Spark on here (He still works on one).

But I can't, for the life of me, remember who it is. :(

I would scan the documentation I have just received which clearly states a stanley knife of similar, hell rewiring a rig which I presume is mainly SWA it is a 100% requirement.

Its possible that as we are rewiring a rig and not permanent staff this is the reason, I have no idea. I can understand the safety side but hell, most machines offshore are far more dangerous than the humble stanley. Health and safety gone mad.
