||Physiological and psychological measurements, chosen as indicators of stress, were made on individuals undergoing offshore survival training, concentrating on practical exercises. Their emotional reactions were assessed by various questionnaires filled in by the trainees themselves. Most of them were especially anxious at the start of the course: helicopter underwater escape training was perceived to be the most difficult exercise. Particular problems were found to be also associated with fire training. Possible means of alleviating these issues are discussed. Older refreshers were found to be less anxious, probably as a result of experience.
