Evacuation centre (OSEP)

(Operator's Centre for Evacuees and Next of Kin)


An evacuation centre is an assembly location for physically uninjured persons who have been involved in an incident and who need care, help to be reunited with their next of kin, and someone to talk to.


In the same way, a next-of-kin centre is a physical assembly point for next of kin who need information, help, care, and someone to talk to. OFFB has established an Operator's Centre for Evacuees and Next of Kin, known as OSEP, in the Norwegian coastal towns of Stavanger, Bergen, Florø, Kristiansund, Brønnøysund and Hammerfest. Each OSEP carries out exercises twice a year.


If an incident occurs and a need arises to transport personnel onshore, hotels with which we have an agreement will be made ready, rooms will be made available and the necessary resources called in. Expert personnel such as the police, chaplains, medical personnel, representatives of the operator and other professionals will be on hand to take care of those affected. 


CALL CENTRE

If necessary, OFFB can provide a call centre where as many as ten handlers can deal with enquiries from next of kin. Trained professionals and modern systems ensure that information is coordinated, approved and logged in order to avoid misunderstandings.
