RS & WBV Marine Awareness Course

1 April 2020 - POSTPONED - Due to COVID-19

We have a number of key participants, relevant to the programme, that are unable to travel due to restrictions in their home country or rules from their organisation.

As the topics of this NEXT GEN Workshop are important to the marine industry we will move the programme to another date.

We will continue to monitor advice from the UK Department of Health then announce new dates.

Repetitive Shock & Whole Body Vibration

Causes of 'shock' are random 'hits' of up to 15G from head sea impacts or from overtaking following seas. A single event can result in a sudden chronic injury. Causes of 'vibration' are continuous 'hammering' such as short steep seas or wind against tide conditions. Extended exposure can result in muscle fatigue and injury.

RS & WBV Training

Specialist training for professional operators of RIBs and High Speed Craft is essential for organisations affected by the UK / EC Vibration Directive. Our RS & WBV Marine Awareness courses utilise the latest information. For all organisations designing, building and operating planing vessels content is: a) Unique. b) Current. c) Relevant.

Combining Training With Experience

We believe that the only substitute for experience is excellent training, ideally delivered by skilled instructors experienced in the relevant sector. Our knowledge is shaped by experience and we understand the factors that are driving the changes for employers and operators in the marine sector.

Training At All Levels

Training can include separate levels of information for management, employees and crews. Shock Mitigation can present one or two day seminars at your workplace to present the latest developments relevant to your organisation. The objective is to improve the knowledge and performance of individuals and groups.


We are pleased to discuss your specific training requirements regarding RIB, high speed craft (HSC), marine and special projects. We work with new and experienced clients to establish training objectives, develop processes and deliver on-site or off-site training relevant to the end user.
