Many years ago in the infancy of the offshore industry, people were transported to and from offshore rigs and platforms with the use of a cargo net. Personnel would hang on to the outside of the net and be moved from boat to rig. Billy Pugh figured out quickly that this was a formula for some serious accidents. A new device was then designed by Billy Pugh as a safe transfer system that allowed personnel to embark and disembark quickly and safely. The Billy Pugh Personnel Transfer Net allowed workers to have the sensation of being inside the device, but also allows the freedom to get off and away from danger when in rough sea conditions.
The Billy Pugh personnel net became the industry standard all over the world. It has saved and protected millions of riders over the years and is a symbol of the offshore industry. Many a new offshore employee remembers his or her first ride on a personnel transfer net; it is almost a rite of passage. There have been many attempts to improve or even replace the personnel net but the basic idea and design is still in use around the world.
