Escape, evacuation, and rescue (EER) analysis is one of vital roles to protect and save personnel in the event of a major accident on offshore oil and gas production platforms. However, most of EER analysis method for evaluating EER strategies of offshore plants relied on deterministic or probabilistic methods including several risk assessment tools. This study focused that all partial processes of EER analysis are similar to the things of passenger ship escape and evacuation: “Means of Escape”, “Simplified Evacuation Analysis”, and “Advanced Evacuation Analysis”. Since various methodologies and some authorized rules for EER plans and resources were already studied in the domain of passenger ship, this study tried to adopt them to offshore plant fields with their minor revisions. In the evacuation process of EER analysis, especially, a human behavior model was adopted to simulate the evacuation sequence in more detail. It was supposed that the human behavior model is based on the velocity-based model, and consists of individual, crowd, and emergency behaviors. As an example, the method is applied to some offshore plant projects and compared with the result of conventional EER analysis.
