Issue: AO-2019-073-SI-05 Procedure for a rapid disembarkation
Number: AO-2019-073-SI-05
Description: AO-2019-073-SI-05 :Qantas did not have a procedure for a rapid disembarkation, or other similar procedure that would effectively enable rapid deplaning at a slower and more controlled pace than an emergency evacuation. Therefore, the only option for rapid deplaning was an emergency evacuation utilising slides, which unnecessarily increased the risk of ...

Issue: AO-2019-073-SI-02 Cabin crew training
Number: AO-2019-073-SI-02
Description: AO-2019-073-SI-02 :Qantas's cabin crew recurrent training did not include any situation whereby a disarmed door would have to be rearmed in an emergency. This increased the likelihood that a door would be opened without the escape slide deployed, reducing the number of available exits.

Issue: AO-2019-073-SI-01 Evacuation commands
Number: AO-2019-073-SI-01
Description: AO-2019-073-SI-01 :Qantas's cabin crew primary evacuation commands did not include phrases such as 'leave everything behind' and 'jump and slide'; instead, these phrases were optional. Consequently, passengers would generally not receive specific guidance until they reached an exit, which would likely slow down the evacuation.

Issue: AO-2018-022-SI-01Risk controls associated with pilots identifying fatigue risks associated with insufficient sleep and extended wakefulness
Number: AO-2018-022-SI-01
Description: AO-2018-022-SI-01:The sleep log tool used by the operator contained a coding error and it also pre-loaded sleep periods of future nights by default. This combination of factors reduced the likelihood pilots would identify fatigue risks associated with insufficient sleep and extended wakefulness.

Number: AO-2018-022-SI-02
Description: AO-2018-022-SI-02:The operator's fatigue risk management system relied extensively on a sleep reporting spreadsheet (sleep log) that was based on the prior sleep wake model, and the spreadsheet had a transparent rule set that made the recorded data easy to modify to achieve results that met the operator’s minimum sleep and ...

Issue: AO-2018-022-SI-04Operator’s circuit and approach procedures for marine pilot transfer operations and criteria for achieving a stabilised approach
Number: AO-2018-022-SI-04
Description: AO-2018-022-SI-04:The operator’s circuit and approach procedures for marine pilot transfer operations did not minimise pilot workload or provide the recommended stabilised approach criteria with mandatory go-around policy. These procedures could allow a combination of conditions that increased the risk of a sustained abnormal flight path and collision with terrain/water.

Description: RO-2019-009-SI-001:Queensland Rail's process for the installation of signal aspect indicators (SAIs) did not provide sufficient detail to ensure consistent and conspicuous placement of SAIs at station platforms. This problem, combined with an SAI’s non-salient indication when the platform departure signal displayed a stop indication, increased the risk that an SAI ...
