Safety Action


Local safety action

Following the occurrence, the forward galley and forward toilet drain lines were inspected and no defects were found. The operator subsequently removed the forward galley and resealed the floor in the forward vestibule area under the galley and adjacent to the forward doors before re-installing the galley components. The operator's maintenance provider designed and manufactured an approved aluminium moisture shroud that was fitted in the E/E bay on 11 December 2001. Functional checks on the avionics units were carried out and the aircraft was returned to service on 13 December 2001.

The operator advised that a safety article would be distributed to cabin crew with specific feedback in regards to this occurrence. An operations manual revision would be initiated to include a discussion about varying emergency descent profiles and aircraft effects. The operator also advised that this information would be included in initial and recurrent cabin crew training.
