Abstract

This paper describes a project to adapt a form of human factors training designed to improve safety called Crew Resource Management (CRM), which is widely used in aviation, to the training of offshore oil platform teams. The aim of the project was to design, deliver, and evaluate an offshore CRM training course. A total of 77 offshore workers from three different North Sea production platforms attended the courses. Their feedback was generally positive indicating that CRM training can be adapted for this industrial sector. There was some evidence of a change in attitudes towards decision making and personal limitations. However, there is a need to develop sensitive evaluation measures to be able to draw more conclusive evidence of the effects of CRM training on safety performance. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
