    WesCom Signal and Rescue showcases its commitment to safety training at Nor-Shipping 2019

    Global supplier of marine distress signals, WesCom Signal and Rescue says it will be exhibiting this year at Nor-Shipping, the bi-annual event which attracts key decision makers in maritime industries from across the world.

    In support of its many distributors and partners around the world, WesCom Signal and Rescue has been developing a range of bespoke programmes to enhance training facilities. In the last 12 months, this has included providing more than 1,000 dummy products, and creating detailed animations and guidance materials for its branded SOLAS and non SOLAS products, for over 120 training establishments around the world.

    Chris Feibusch, Director of Global Marketing and Communications at WesCom Signal and Rescue, comments, “We are committed to safety training and work tirelessly to ensure our products are of the highest possible standard. Nor-Shipping provides the perfect platform for us to speak to a global audience and we look forward to making new business contacts and meeting with our existing customers and distributors.”

    The animations created by WesCom Signal and Rescue assist maritime training establishments both with classroom training, offering an alternative information source, and for the increasingly popular use of web-based training courses. They can also be included within ships’ digital training manuals on board and offer a highly effective method of teaching compared to traditional pictorial training manuals. They are being utilised by the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence, the Royal Netherlands Sea Rescue Institution (KNRM) and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), and can be accessed by all the latter’s 6,000+ volunteer crews as part of their initial and ongoing training.

    WesCom Signal and Rescue will be showing these animations and a selection of key products from its stand during the show.

    WesCom Signal and Rescue is trusted by the world’s navies, lifeboat and rescue services, merchant fleets and airlines, as well as by fishing vessels and leisure craft.
