Nationally Recognised Management of Major Emergencies (MOME) Training

Nationally Recognised Management of Major Emergencies (MOME) training is only offered to corporate clients. It is designed to maintain competency standards for key operational and management personnel, from both onshore and offshore production facilities to the required hydrocarbon industry standards.

The course is delivered with five participants, each undertaking unique roles to simulate a Major Emergencies situation. These roles and responsibilities can include Installation Manager, Deputy Commander, Control Room Panel/ Radio Operator, Key Events Coordinator and Muster & Logistics Coordinator. Depending on client requirements, additional students can be assessed over a longer delivery period, or certain roles can be back filled to support an actual simulated Major Emergencies situation.

MOME training can be contextualised to a client’s specific project. This is achieved by incorporating into the MOME Suite the exact procedures, controls and environments for a project, including layout, which would be experienced during an emergency at that project. If preferred, the course can also be delivered via a generic emergency environment. Training is conducted through theory presentations highlighting essential underpinning knowledge followed by scenario based simulation sessions using purpose built training simulators.

The practical component of the training is conducted by creating credible realistic scenarios using computer based simulators replicating functional operating systems, were the operator and manager are expected to assess the situation, learn to gather important incident data and respond in a predictable manner to maintain personnel safety and prevent escalation.


This course is designed to introduce offshore operators to the philosophy and underpinning knowledge behind Major Emergency Management on an offshore facility.

The intent is to train personnel through theory, simulation and practical demonstration in the techniques of Major Emergency Management.

To review and test company procedures related to Emergency Response.

To identify any areas of deficiency in Emergency Response (site specific) and to increase awareness of Asset Loss Prevention.

This program can be conducted as a generic or a site specific course if required. The simulator is configured to replicate site detection and process logic.

Who should attend?

Offshore Installation Managers, Facility Management Team and Duty Control Room Production Technicians, long term regular contractors and visitors who will have the need to perform any work which requires a permit to work.
