UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch safety digest 1/2022 published
A new collection of cases (volume 1 of 2022) detailing accidents involving vessels from the merchant, fishing and recreational sectors is now available for free download from the UK MAIB web site.
This includes 16 merchant vessel incident investigations including mechanical, navigational and manoeuvring failures. It also includes an interesting thought-piece about the importance of cultural and interpersonal competence raising challenges about communication, coordination, collaboration and empathy. In this case in marine operations, but we would argue equally important throughout the cargo handling chain.
