AbstractThis report constitutes an Industry Company Profile as required by the Engineering Co-op Program. It is divided into three parts ? an industry profile of the offshore safety research industry, a company profile of the Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT), and my role as an engineering work term student here at IOT. The industry profile describes the history of offshore evacuation and the tragedies that have propelled this industry to develop. Also discussed is the general structure and distribution of the industry, and several elite institutions that conduct offshore research around the world. The company profile aspect of this report includes a general history of IOT, as well as a description of the facilities and equipment that are currently available. In addition, I also concentrate on the role of the marine safety research team within the overall research and development mandates of IOT. The final section of this report deals with my role as an engineering work term student at IOT. Its main focus is to describe what it means to be an active member of the safety research team. I do this by describing several projects I was involved with during the work term, primarily the physical testing and data analysis phases of the model-scale lifeboats in ice project.
