GOMO awareness

Shipboard operations to support and supply off-shore facilities present a high level of risk, due to the nature of the work involved and the challenging environments in which these facilities are often located. To reduce and manage these risks, the industry has produced the Guidelines for Offshore Marine Operations, the GOMO, which gather together the best practices for safe operations.
