HANDBOOK FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS FOR PERSONNEL IN NEW TECHNOLOGY SYSTEMS

An established method of task analysis - Functional Job Analysis - has been adapted for use in delineating qualifications needed by personnel in new types of vessel systems. The method was developed and applied in two demonstration projects, from which qualifications were recommended for liquefied natural gas cargo handling personnel and nuclear ship engineering personnel. The procedures address special problems involved in performing a generally applicable analysis that reflects the unique hazards and safety requirements of marine occupations. The report on the method is in handbook form. It covers definition of the new type of system, data sources, development of an analytic structure, the writing of complete task descriptions within a system framework and procedures for supporting the reliability and validity of the task produced in the analysis.
