In order to meet energy needs the search for oil and gas has led into deeper and deeper water. With installations located farther from shore, the length of stay aboard for crews could also increase. Long stays offshore can challenge crew mental and physical fitness levels which may impact productivity, performance, and safety. To maintain appropriate fitness levels, crews must be provided with properly designed accommodations and workspaces with favorable ambient environmental factors. ABS has developed a comprehensive guide that integrates human factors, ergonomics, and habitability data with accommodations design criteria. The subject of this paper is the production of such a guide, the ABS Guide for Crew Habitability on Offshore Installations, it’s criteria and measurement methodologies.
