Number: RO-2015-029-SI-04
Description: RO-2015-029-SI-04:There was an identified gap in the knowledge of track maintenance personnel that was probably the result of deficiencies in training and development.

Number: AO-2014-053-SI-04
Description: AO-2014-053-SI-04 :It was likely that the parachutists on the accident flight, as well as those that had participated in previous flights, were not secured to the single-point restraints that were fitted to VH-FRT. While research indicates that single-point restraints provide limited protection when compared to dual-point restraints, they do reduce the ...

Number: AO-2014-053-SI-03
Description: AO-2014-053-SI-03:Research has identified that rear‑facing occupants of parachuting aircraft have a higher chance of survival when secured by dual-point restraints, rather than the standard single-point restraints that were generally fitted to Australian parachuting aircraft.

Description: AO-2014-053-SI-01 :Despite being categorised as mandatory for the pilot’s seat by the aircraft manufacturer, a secondary seat stop modification designed to prevent uncommanded rearward pilot seat movement and potential loss of control was not fitted to VH-FRT, nor was it required to be under United States or Australian regulations.

Number: RO-2015-022-SI-03
Description: RO-2015-022-SI-03 :The procedures for measuring, assessing, and remediating rail creep in spring did not ensure creep defects were addressed in a timely manner and prior to the onset of hot weather. A creep defect identified by the spring measurements was not corrected before the derailment.

Issue: MO-2016-001-SI-02Melbourne vessel traffic service procedures
Number: MO-2016-001-SI-02
Description: MO-2016-001-SI-02:The Port of Melbourne vessel traffic service (VTS) procedures for adverse weather were not comprehensive and, hence, its response on 13 January was only partially effective. One important consequence was that VTS’s advance warning of storm force winds did not reach all relevant parties, including Spirit of Tasmania II’s master.
