Moxie Media’s Man Overboard Training
If you work on offshore oil rigs and maritime vessels, then you know the magnitude of risks associated with these environments. A man overboard is an emergency situation every marine worker faces. Moxie Media’s man overboard training is designed to help crew members prevent and respond to this dangerous situation.
A major concern of maritime operations is recovering personnel who have fallen overboard. This involves safely transferring them from the water to the deck of a boat or hatch of a lifeboat. Our training program illustrates several man overboard rescue procedures for retrieving personnel in the water. Using high-quality video shot on location, we demonstrate vessel approach techniques, including the Anderson, Williamson, and Race Track Turn methods.

Training for Safe Prevention and Response
Our safety training emphasizes both prevention and man overboard rescue procedures. First and foremost, we teach crew members aboard a vessel to be very careful while performing their duties. It is never guaranteed that a person will not fall off the ship.
Like many emergency situations, a man overboard can happen at any time. The majority of man overboard cases do not involve bad weather, rough seas, or any other extenuating circumstances. The most common type of man overboard situation occurs in calm waters, which is why it is critical that workers take every precaution available to prevent crew members from falling overboard.
When a worker does fall overboard, the most important thing is to stay calm and focused. Our man overboard training prepares workers to remain calm while acting immediately. By executing the correct recovery procedures, your crew can help ensure that the person in the water is not harmed any further.
Man Overboard Rescue Procedures
Every emergency is different. Crew members need man overboard training on a variety of response procedures that they can choose from to best fit their situation.
Moxie Media’s training teaches workers 3 man overboard rescue procedures:
- The Anderson Turn
- The Williamson Turn
- The Racetrack Turn
Each rescue procedure contains detailed instructions and information regarding:
- When to use a specific rescue procedure.
- Why to use one rescue procedure over another.
- How to perform each rescue procedure.
- Who needs to contribute to performing the rescue procedure.
Workers will learn how to maneuver all 3 of the above procedures in our training program. Using video shot on location, crew members can see how these man overboard rescue procedures work in action. Our video demonstrations help to better prepare workers to respond if someone falls overboard.
