Introduction <ul><li>The TORO is the latest evolution in crane assisted transfer devices for the offshore industry. </li></ul><ul><li>Incorporating design principles from existing transfer devices, the TORO-4 can transfer 4 people and provides a combination of advanced passenger protection, comfort, speed of entry and exit and cost efficiency. </li></ul><ul><li>Introduced in 2009 there are over 25 TORO-4 units in operation around the globe including the UK, the US and Indonesia. </li></ul><ul><li>TORO-4 Key Features: </li></ul><ul><li>4 person or 2 person + stretcher capacity </li></ul><ul><li>Suitable for MedEvac transfers </li></ul><ul><li>Suitable for low to medium volume crew changes </li></ul><ul><li>Small footprint and lightweight </li></ul><ul><li>Standard model (RT4-01) </li></ul><ul><li>SWL of 440 kg (970 lbs) </li></ul><ul><li>CE Marked </li></ul><ul><li>ABS Type Approved </li></ul><ul><li>3 Star Operating Envelope </li></ul>
  4. 4. TORO-4 Designed to Protect FALL PROTECTION IMMERSION HEAVY LANDING PROTECTION SIDE IMPACT PROTECTION Fitted with 3 point harnesses, or Lap strap Specially formulated materials used for seat cushions and feet, as well as an ergonomic seated position protects passengers from heavy landings Rugged stainless steel protection frame Flotation and self-righting

  6. 6. PPE for Marine Transfer Refer to TORO User Manual for full details Style/Type Picture Evaluation Recommendation Inherently buoyant work vest buoyancy aid (100 N) Flat buoyancy panels are unobtrusive and allow passengers easy entry and exit from seat harness Acceptable RML recommend that any PFD of this type is tested with seat harness in TORO for compatibility Manual inflatable lifejacket (150 N) Personnel should not inflate the PFD whilst strapped in the TORO Acceptable (exception basis) RML recommend that this style is used carefully to prevent accidental inflation
  7. 7. Pre-Loading <ul><li>TORO-4 will take 4 seated passengers (4x110 kg) or 440 kg freight evenly distributed </li></ul><ul><li>Luggage is to be transferred separately </li></ul><ul><li>Each seat has a dedicated entry/exit point of which all passengers must enter and exit from the same direction </li></ul><ul><li>When advised to do so by deck crew, passengers should unfasten the safety belts, stand and exit the TORO by the exit to the left of the seat utilised </li></ul><ul><li>All passengers should enter the TORO to the left and use the seat then directly in front </li></ul><ul><li>All passengers should stand and move to the exit at the left of the seat used </li></ul><ul><li>Check at the assigned pre-lifting safe area: </li></ul><ul><li>Have you been briefed on TORO-4 transfers? </li></ul><ul><li>Have you have checked your life jacket? </li></ul><ul><li>Await instruction from the deck crew to begin embarkation </li></ul>
