Abstract:

This report is the product of a 4 month study of offshore supply vessel OSV operations. The study was performed for the U.S. Coast Guard to provide the basis for establishing experience and training levels, career patterns, manning levels and examinations for personnel employed on OSVs. Functional Job Analysis was used to prepare detailed, standardized descriptions of the tasks required under routine and emergency conditions, taking into account OSV design and equipment, availability of personnel, and environmental variables. The functional area of onboard supervision and training was also addressed. Industry practices in the selection and training of personnel were reviewed for comparison with the experience and training needs indicated by the analysis. The information and data developed during the study will also be of value to operating company personnel, training and safety managers in developing training programs, operating instructions and policies, and selection criteria.
