Daily operations onboard ships are very challenging due to man–machine interactions. To improve daily operational safety and to prevent losses due to machinery breakdown, effective risk management techniques need to be developed, considering various operational and environmental factors affecting the seafarers' performance. The current study explains the comparison between simulation and conventional classroom training to enhance safety in maritime operations in compromised environments. The contribution of this study lies in introducing the concept of social fidelity in simulator-based training. This study bridges the gap between computer technology and collaborative learning activities in simulator-based training. The result obtained through the simulation improves marine engineers' training and enhances the reliability of marine engines. This paper concludes by proposing a set of recommendations for the future design of simulator-based training for marine engineers
