AbstractShipping and offshore sectors are moving operations into the ice-covered waters of the Arctic. As these exploration endeavours evolve, more guidance is needed for equipment, procedures, and training to operate in cold, harsh environments. At present, limited training exists for lifeboat coxswains charged with navigating lifeboats in ice-covered water during emergency evacuation situations. This research study examines the effectiveness of simulator training in comparison with traditional Standard Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) training for navigating lifeboats in ice fields. These findings will inform manufacturers, trainers and regulators regarding the operational demands and training requirements needed to safely and efficiently perform these tasks.
