Malaysian crewboat
  • At port
  • Tarzan rope 
  • Surfer with Boat landing

There is no such thing as standard crew change. Why ?

  • Distance to shore
  • Australian trade unions
  • New standard from specific Oil company following a recent occurence
  • SPS vessel required as per SOLAS rules / flag exemption refused
  • No Helicopter available in the area

Crew changes organisation suggests:

  • Good organization between back offices crewing departments and operations( passports, training, Visas, etc )
  • Good preparation ashore with transport schedules, immigration appointments, hotels, crew list for Helicopter company.
  • Strict rules concerning transport or personnel ashore
