2.8.2022: UNIS Water Safety Training

By August 2, 2022August 13th, 2022Svalbard

A safety briefing at UNIS.

We will be going out on fieldwork in Isfjorden, and as preparation, we had a Health Safety and Environment (HSE) training today focusing on operating on boats. We donned survival suits, went out on a Snowcat to the harbor, and simulated a rescue scenario. It was fun to jump into icy cold water, and made for some exciting teambuilding.

A snowcat to take us to the test site.

Fresh out of the water!
