That is why it is important to take all safety courses and review all operational procedures before performing any offshore activity. We literally live on a time bomb. What directly affects the life of the companion on board. So do not give in to pressure, if you can not do the job, do not do it! You have the right to refuse and your life comes first, do not forget that there are family members waiting and dependent on you on land.
