The Work Rest module in Helm CONNECT Personnel is a set of tools to help you manage your crew's fatigue. With Work Rest, you can record the work, travel, on watch, and rest periods of your crew to make sure they’re getting adequate rest and to ensure that, during an audit, you can demonstrate compliance with industry regulations.
Work Rest Filter
When you first open the Work Rest tab—regardless of whether you're working on shore or from an asset installation—we prompt you to filter the displayed data in the Work Rest Filter, making it easy to focus on just the information that's relevant to your job.
The Division and Assets filters won't be visible if you're working on an asset installation.
Once you’ve filtered your data, entering work and rest hours is simple: add them manually by selecting 30-minute squares on the grid and toggling them to the correct status (Working, Resting, Travel, or On Watch), or use shifts to pre-populate the time automatically. Each type of work or rest is represented by a different color, so it’s easy to review what you’ve entered. If a crew member’s work or rest is non-compliant (based on the rules you configure), the cell will turn red and you can enter a note to explain the discrepancy.
During an audit, you have everything on hand to demonstrate compliance, whether you’re working onboard an asset or on shore:
- If you’re onboard during an audit, you can hover over any red cells to display details about which rule was broken. You can also view any related notes.
- If you’re on shore during an audit, you can search the change log to demonstrate that no one has tampered with any data. With just a few clicks, you can also download or print a report of any results you see on your screen.
Work Rest Header
At the top of the Work Rest tab, the header provides tools for editing your work-rest data and filtering it based on dates, crew members, assets, or non-compliance items. You'll also find options for managing your settings, as well as exporting information to Excel and printing reports.
NoteThe Settings button is available only if you're working on the Personnel > Schedule > Work Rest tab; it's not available on the Onboard > Personnel > Work Rest tab.
Work Rest Grid
Below the header, a 24-hour grid displays the work-rest time for your crew, broken into 30-minute increments. When you use the Work Rest Filter to add or remove specific crew members from the grid, you'll see the names of the selected crew members listed to the left of the grid. As some crew members work on multiple assets in a single day, if you're also using the Crew On and Crew Off features in Helm Connect, you can hover over any cell to display a tooltip describing which asset the crew member was on and which position they worked during that time period. If the crew member's work-rest was non-compliant, (based on the rules you configure), the cell will turn red and the tooltip will show which rule or rules were broken. To the right of the grid, you can add relevant notes per crew member, per day.
