SUMMARY

This report looks at the current situation in regard to the operation of the FRCs carried on standby vessels used in the British sector of the North Sea offshore oil operations and recommends ways in which these operations can be made more effective and safe. It covers the launch and recovery systems used for the FRCs as well as the FRCs themselves. In addition to studying the current operations in the British sector, the operations in both the Dutch, Danish and Norwegian sectors were studied. The report also looks at the training and other aspects of operating FRCs and it produces a series of recommendations to improve not only the conditions in which the FRCs can operate but also how to make these operations safer for the crews involved.

This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including any opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy.
