Skills for Remote Workers including Oil, Gas, Forestry & Fishing
Remote industries face many unique challenges and tend to attract a similar type of person. Employees are often independent and prize the ability to work without constant surveillance. They form tight-knit groups and place value in being part of a team or crew. At Anchorpoint Response, we respect the nature of your work and want to empower you to better care for your own in worst-case situations.
Whether you work on an ocean vessel on the east coast or an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, if something goes wrong, you and your team are the first responders to a critical incident. In isolated areas with limited access and extreme environments, from the arctic tundra to deepsea laboratories, the immediate care will be provided by your colleagues and partners. The evidence-based knowledge and skills to respond to crisis events are within reach and Anchorpoint Response strives to bring this information to you.
Delivering benefits to the public is one of the strategic goals for 2015-2002 published by the United States Forest Service. Under this goal, the desire to promote prosperity, health, and quality of life are clearly spelled out as desired outcomes for caring for and preserving public open spaces that all people can enjoy. The report says that “the people we serve benefit from healthy, resilient forests and grasslands in various ways.” At Anchorpoint Response, we believe that these same characteristics apply to the people employed to serve as well as the forests they work in. Healthy, resilient employees are better able to respond to traumatic events and bounce back from difficult situations. Whether members of the forest service or forestry industries, we believe that the members of remote industries are the leaders in self-sustaining operational practices and we are eager to help deliver best practices in critical incident response to these communities.
Although our team of facilitators could not possibly represent the full array of our outdoor industry partners, our facilitators each come with extensive wilderness skills and experience. We are proud of our ability to operate successfully in austere conditions and remote environments; we only ask that you communicate the nature of the conditions and the challenges that our facilitators may face during our initial conversations and contract development. We understand that it may be more in your financial interest to bring a trainer to your team in the middle of nowhere; at Anchiproint Response, we are ready and willing to make that journey and bring the training to you, wherever you are.
In addition to our safety programs and crisis intervention training, Anchorpoint Response is pleased to offer Instructor Development programs and a desire to partner with your agency on better preparing your staff to deliver in-house, on the job training that matters. From our two-day “Training from the BACK of the Room” option to custom mentoring and train-the-trainer options for several of our standalone topics, we are dedicated to helping you find the best solutions for your industry.
