Operations in ice-covered waters are increasing as Arctic environments become more accessible. With this move, there is an increased need for better equipment, procedures, regulations and training to operate in cold, harsh environments. No mandatory training exists for lifeboat coxswains charged with navigating lifeboats in ice-covered water during emergency evacuation situations. This study sets out to examine simulator training in comparison with traditional coxswain training to observe performance in a simulated ice field. Participants completed...
