Conducting Effective Drills
The following three steps are required for drills to be effective:
Plan the drill-effective drills should always be carefully planned to focus the training on a particular need. Planning the drills maximizes the benefits of conducting the drills and minimizes the amount of time wasted during the drill
Conduct the fire drill realistically – The drill should stimulate an actual condition and make the crew performing as though the actual emergency condition existed.
Conclude with a critique and discussion session immediately following the drill will identify the problem areas and point out mistakes while they are fresh in the minds of the crew.
Each drill should be designed to emphasize a single aspect of responding to an emergency, even though every drill should contain all the steps necessary in a real emergency. A single drill should not attempt to teach crewmembers everything at once. Focusing the drill on a single aspect simplifies the drill, can increase the chances of that aspect being remembered during an emergency if necessary, and keeps the time required for the drill within an acceptable limit.
Select a suitable location: The location for the drill should be appropriate for the aspect being emphasized. For example a drill that focuses on life raft deployment should beheld at a life raft station. The location for a fire or another emergency situation should vary from time to time.
Avoid undue risk: Drills should avoid exposing the crew installations to situations that may place them in jeopardy. For example toxic fumes should not be used when training crew members in the use of self- contained breathing apparatus or fires started to test fire fighting system.
The Person in Charge should avoid placing his crew in high risk situation,avoiding all risk should mild seaway can entail some risk, this risk can be reduced to an acceptable level with proper maintenance and training. The benefits of operating this equipment to increase the chance of successful deployment in a real emergency are high and therefore worthwhile. This type of drill should be conducted preferably in sheltered waters or in good weather condition with the minimum crew on board (3 men).The steps that should be taken after clearing the platform vessel or module are discussed.These steps include:
