||June 1996, Vol.38, No.2, p.262-277. 46 ref.
||The findings of a study of emergency decision making on offshore installations are discussed. The study included an examination of procedures for the selection, training and competence assessment of offshore installation managers (OIMs), and interviews with OIMs who had managed an offshore emergency. The characteristics of decision making that the on-scene commander requires in an offshore crisis are discussed in terms of recent developments in theories of naturalistic decision making, with particular reference to recognition-primed decision making.
