Following the incident, BP Shipping took immediate steps to review and amend its lifting procedures, including the following:
(a) The prompt implementation of a procedure mandating fixed point attachments above the centre of gravity, or the use of cargo nets, for all ship storing and other lifting operations involving storage bins, crates or other types of containers.
(b) A thorough review of lifting and slinging processes, practices, procedures and equipment.
(c) A full review of lifting JHA within a revised BP Shipping Control of Work including a new lifting permit system requiring a drawing detailing the attachment points and slinging arrangements.
(d) A fleet wide "safety stand down" review and training workshop for lifting and slinging arrangements was completed on all company vessels.
ATSB is satisfied that the actions taken will address this issue.
