"An industrial hygienist from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) conducted an industrial hygiene survey during an offshore oil recovery mission involving the 234 foot M/V Queen Bee platform supply vessel on June 14--16, 2010. This vessel was retrofitted with a U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) operated weir skimmer, skimming control stand, high volume pumping unit (HVPU), boom system, three on-deck 500-barrel storage capacity tanks, and an industrial crane (to move boom and the skimmer). During this survey personnel on the Queen Bee who were skimming oil from the ocean surface included crew, contract personnel from Ameri-force, and the USCG. The USCG personnel were operating the skimming system and instructing and observing contract personnel's use of all components of the skimming system."
