The Transportation Research Board (TRB) is one of six major divisions of the National Research Council. The mission of the Transportation Research Board is to provide leadership in transportation innovation and progress through research and information exchange, conducted within a setting that is objective, interdisciplinary, and multimodal. The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academy’s purposes of furthering knowledge and advising the federal government.

TRB has released the final version of Special Report 310: Worker Health and Safety on Offshore Wind Farms that examines the hazards and risks to workers on offshore wind farms on the outer continental shelf as compared to offshore oil and gas operations; explores gaps and overlaps in jurisdictional authority for worker health and safety on offshore wind farms; and evaluates the adequacy of, and recommends enhancements to, the existing safety management system (SMS) requirement published in 30 CFR 585.810.

You can download a PDF version (approx. 180 pages) of the report by clicking here, or go to the TRB’s web site for more information and to purchase a hard copy of the report.
