To anyone who has worked with a T card or other manual mustering system, the suggestion the you could muster 736 people in 15 minutes would be considered blatantly ridiculous...............but that is what we did last night!!

The field in question has three accommodation locations and completed a full field muster last night using the EPIC POB system. We do this at every muster, but this time it struck me as significant that so many people could be mustered with such efficiency.

It also identifies anomalies quickly. The name of the person standing by on the new BLP installation to keep the lights on, quickly came into the system as missing and was identified easily.

I am pleased to report that the EPIC System has performed reliably since installation and has impressed many people in its simplicity and efficiency.

We are achieving full musters in times between seven and nine minutes, which is excellent.

I have used the system myself for interrogation purposes during drills and find it easy to understand – it’s a good feeling to watch the numbers drop until you get to the point where you know all are accounted for. I would recommend this system to any operator looking to install a POB muster system.

In my capacity as a platform OIM on various installations and HUC OIM on several projects, my greatest priority during an emergency situation is to account for all personnel on the installation as safely and as quickly as possible. In my experience, I have found over time that the EPIC Smart-Trac swipe card system has been the most efficient safe system to enable me to do this. The system is easy for one and all to use, easy to interrogate and in a muster situation, gives you a constantly updating picture of the number of people accounted / not accounted for in real time. The system also provides easy access to identify missing individuals by name when necessary, allowing focused attention to the individuals last known work area by search parties etc. Reliability of the system is second to none, most issues found are down to the human machine interface aspect. I have never been let down by EPIC Smart-Trac, with some projects involving 500+ personnel, being able to account for them all within 20 minutes, usually less, makes the management of the remainder of an emergency situation a lot easier and a lot less stressful. I would recommend EPIC Smart-Trac as the system of choice for all POB management and electronic mustering needs.

With some 500 guests aboard it is absolutely crucial to keep a stringent track of the POB at all times both from an administrative point of view and even more importantly from a safety perspective. With that in mind we are very happy to work with the EPIC System, which has proven to be very operator friendly and reliable. When operating on remote locations with high demands such as offshore Oil and Gas fields it is very important to be able to rely on the systems and the support provided from the vendor. We are very pleased with the system in place and the professional support and training provided.

The Smart-Trac system accurately manages the POB transfers between the platform and ourselves and achieves the aim of reducing muster times by eliminating the need to manually headcount. We are achieving full musters in nine minutes which is excellent. It also tracks the whereabouts of Emergency Response Team Members during exercises, giving the OIM a full picture of where resources can best be deployed during specific incidents.

During drills the rig find it easy to understand.

The support from EPIC has been second to none, they are keen to ensure that their product works to its full potential and are always quick to answer any queries or work through any issues arising. I would recommend this system to any Operator looking to install a POB muster system, although I have only experienced this product in tandem whilst being alongside a compliant platform, I would certainly now use it on a stand-alone installation.
