Strong yet Lightweight.
All X-904’s are made of a sturdy and very durable aluminum skeleton that encompasses the rider to protect them from falling objects and any side impact that may occur.
Safety comes First.
The X-904 is built above and beyond standard safety rules and regulations to provide a superior product to customers.
Billy Pugh Co. management group spent two years in collaboration between BPC, HSE&Q managers, crane operators, rig managers and offshore personnel to create the most successful product in our history- the X-904. Our prototypes were surveyed by over 500 offshore workers for feedback on this design. We conducted focus groups on what was needed to create the safest, most efficient and operationally superior product available in the world. Safety features include overhead & side impact protection, softer landings, ability to enter and exit quickly and quick release man positioning systems. Finally we added designated area for luggage and a stretcher area for injured personnel.

The X-904 is aged by the In Service Date which is the date the X-904 is removed from its packaging. This date determines when the 6 month inspection and 2 year refurbishment should take place.
Daily Inspections to be performed by a Qualified Person per API -A person designated by the employer who has the experience and formalized training to safely operate the crane, rigging, and associated lifting devices assigned at the work location.

The X-904 was designed to be rebuilt and refurbished; personnel baskets were not. Do to their initial cost it also makes financial sense to refurbish the X-904. Conversely, personnel nets/baskets initial cost is much lower and its design is not conducive or economical for rebuilding.
The X-904 is manufactured with a variety of components such as wire rope, synthetic rope, floatation, cover materials etc. All of these components are affected by the harsh offshore environment they operate in. This wear would include general wear and tear, UV degradation as well as the salt water conditions offshore. These effected parts are all critical in the performance and operation (and most importantly) the safety of the X-904. The X-904 is a device that carries the most important “cargo” in the offshore community…people. The X-904 is designed to be inspected before each use then have a more thorough inspection every 6 months and be refurbished every two years (with the understanding that it had passed the daily and 6 month inspections). The two year refurbishment helps to insure that these devices are more than ready to do the job that they were designed for…Why two years? Because we have found that on average (based on over 50 years of manufacturing safety equipment for offshore use) two years in the field is the maximum time that we can recommend these type devices operate without these critical parts being replaced. Please note: after the 3rd refurbishment of the X-904 you will be required to purchase a new device. We cannot afford to be wrong even once as there is not a more critical device offshore than a personnel transfer device.
The In Service Date is the date when the X-904 is removed from its packaging. This determines when the 6 month inspection and 2 year refurbishment should take place. The In Service Date will need to be noted in the operations manual included with the purchase of the X-904.
Some companies require work vests only and others use Type 1 only for X-904 transfers-it really depends on the culture of the company and what they feel is most effective for their operation and personnel. Have a PFD that is sturdy and has a convenient place in the front of the jacket to attach the quick release carabineer. The PFD should also be regularly inspected for excessive wear or UV degradation. BPC does not recommend anything too bulky (in that) it can interfere with moving in and out of the X-904 inner riding area. We also recommend whatever PFD is used, that it be emphasized to wear the vest/jacket securely around the transferee.
