TRAINING AND PROCEDURES AND THEIR ROLE IN THE EFFICIENT AND SAFE OPERATION OF MODERN TUGS

It is described how an Australian tug operator concluded that the new generation of omnidirectional tugs required the establishment by the company of an intensive program to train or retrain personnel and ensure procedural safety. The approach taken represented a radical departure from the past practice of on-the-job training. Instead, the types of mandatory programs used to maintain personnel proficiency in the aviation field were adopted to ensure that the company's tugmasters achieved and maintained standards that would ensure the safe and efficient operation of the company's fleet of high-technology tugboats.
