US Coast Guard
With the passage of new VIDA regulations, the United States Coast Guard is now tasked with inspecting for environmental compliance on commercial vessels. Our team was tasked with developing a series of job aids that the Coast Guard can use to make these inspections safer, faster, and more accurate than through normal training alone. We accomplished this through codifying the VIDA discharges, interviewing Coast Guard personnel, and gaining feedback on job aid drafts we created. Through our research, we determined a list of criteria that the Coast Guard can use when creating their job aids, both in their content and in their format. Using these criteria, we developed some recommendations on how the Coast Guard can create, implement, and adapt future job aids for environmental inspections.
