Within the framework of mandatory co-curricular theme Application of Safety in the Field, as well as creating a graduate of a bachelor who has the competitiveness to face the world of work, the Department of Management of Aquatic Resources (MSP) training Occupational Health Safety and Environmental Protection (K3LL) which intended for students of class 50. Water Resource Management training was held for two days on 5-6 November 2016 in the Classroom and in the Swimming Pool.
The first day of training activities held in the Fisheries Resource Management 1 (MspI-1) Floor 4 Wing 3 Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences – IPB. The material provided is the safety briefing procedure outdoor activities of Wild Life Camp (WLC). Materials provided on Travel Management and Expedition. Students are taught the importance of knowing the constraints or barriers of nature when doing outdoor activities and how to handle it.
In principle, there are four different stages to be conducted in the expedition, namely: planning, preparation, implementation, and completion or post-field phase. At first the class is divided into eight discussion groups based on themes or research team. Then each group was assigned to form the management structure consisting of a chairman, field coordinator, medical parts, parts consumption, transport logistics, financial administration section and other sections. The aim is that the team has a division of labor and management are evident in the implementation of the research.
Furthermore, the team analyzed the obstacles or technical constraints as well as any hazards that may occur during the study and how to overcome them. In addition, the team should prepare a list of any safety equipment required in ensuring the safety and smooth running of research.
The next material that is equally important is the disease that often occurs hypothermia. Hypothermia is defined as a state of the body’s core temperature lower than 35o C. It can occur suddenly when a person is too long in the cold water or some time after exposure to cold temperatures.
The second day of training activities carried out at the Swimming Pool Tirta Kencana. The concept of the second day’s activities is the training simulation Basic Sea Survival (BSS). BSS material taught include how to shape the Heat Escape Lessening Procedure (HELP) Position aimed at reducing the loss of body heat, which serves mutual HUDDLE Position warms the body, swimming in groups and how to bring the victim while in the water. After completion of training in the pool, the students return to the classroom for a debriefing, evaluation and closing.
