1.0 SAFETY HELMET
I do not normally carry this with me. Whenever I go onboard I borrow (or get a new one from the warehouse) a safety helmet:
Reason – Takes up too much space in the bag
Shoes: Red Wings shoes are synonym in the oil and gas industry. I carry my personal shoes offshore
Reason – Comfortable footwear is important. Plus you may never get the shoes size you want from the vessel warehouse. Not like a helmet, shoes are not adjustable
Depends, sometime I carry them offshore and sometime I get new ones from the warehouse.
Reason – Again, size availability is a major problem.
4.0 SAFETY GLASSES
I bring my own safety glasses to offshore
Reason – It is a prescription glass + Birthday present from my lovely wife so it is a must to wear
5.0 JUNK FOOD/CANDIES/SNACKS
When you will be away for 1-2 months sometime you crave for your favorite candies
Reason – Not all vessels have bond store and sell junk food to your liking
6.0 PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION
I bring some tables offshore depends on the illness.
Reason – There are medic onboard the vessel is design to treat cases that arise during offshore operation and it is not a pharmaceutical store
I do not normally take any movies offshore
Reason – A lot of the project crews will have this onboard and I can just get it of them.
