USE OF SIMULATOR TRAINING TO REDUCE RISK IN OFFSHORE MARINE OPERATIONS

Offshore marine operations are often associated with high risk caused by deteriorating weather, failure of tow lines or problems associated with wrong decisions made by the operation crew. In order to reduce the risk of failures during offshore marine operations, training of the operation crew can be a successful measure. This paper discusses the risk associated with marine operations and focuses on the effect of simulator training as a risk reducing measure. Specific examples where simulator training has been conducted, are discussed.
