AbstractShipping and offshore industries are migrating towards operations in ice-covered waters as gateways to operating in Arctic environments. With this move, there is an increased need for equipment, procedures, and training to operate in cold, harsh environments. Currently, no training exists for lifeboat coxswains charged with navigating lifeboats in ice-covered water during emergency evacuation situations. This research study sets out to examine simulator training in comparison with traditional Standard Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) training to observe performance differences in a simulated ice field. These findings will inform manufacturers, trainers and regulators regarding the demands associated with lifeboat navigation in icecovered waters.
