Issue: RO-2015-022-SI-03 Timeframe for addressing identified rail creep
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.

Number: RO-2015-022-SI-02

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.

Description: AO-2013-120-SI-01:At the time of the occurrence, the approved QantasLink training did not provide first officers with sufficient familiarity on the use of the oxygen mask and smoke goggles. This likely contributed to the crew's communication difficulties, including with air traffic control.
