Offshore travellers throughout the UK Oil and Gas industry are now able to access personal details, trip information and history, certificates and other useful information from both the industry and Operators, by logging on to the new MyVantage application which was launched at the beginning of July.
The programme, which is a new application developed from the POB management tool Vantage, is accessible through a mobile web page and can be accessed via computer, smart phone or tablet. If the Operator allows, offshore travellers will also have the option to use the online check in function. This enables access to check in details online, resulting in a simplified process at the Heliport and a smoother transit to the offshore destination.
The introduction of MyVantage follows extensive workforce and user group engagement – including discussions with Step Change in Safety – throughout 2017 and early 2018. Development work began with a small test team including representatives from Nexen, Equinor, Shell, Total and ConocoPhillips.
MyVantage also allows the offshore workforce to easily view and check their own personal information (which is held in Vantage) access trip histories, view future bookings and receive industry and Operator information.
Once all online check in requirements have been met, travellers will receive a check in barcode which, on arrival at the heliport, is presented at the check in desk. This barcode can either be presented on a mobile device such as a smart phone or in a printed version. In addition to this, the check in staff will be able to see, through Vantage POB, anything that has previously been declared during the on line check in, such as medication and/or mobile phone. Passengers will be requested to weigh baggage as usual and the security process will remain as is.
