UK DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORT TRIALS ON ONE-MAN BRIDGE OPERATIONS (OMBO), 1989

The study described, which was sponsored by the Marine Directorate of the UK Department of Transport, begins an evaluation of bridge operations in ships of less than 1,600 grt with and without a rating lookout by night. Two onboard maritime researchers collected data from two specific ships, each fitted with a Bridge Safety Alarm (BSA) system, over a 15-week period from February to May 1989. Based on the field tests and a literature review, various conclusions relating to the practicability of one-man bridge operations are enumerated. Changes to the bridge safety alarm system are recommended.
