Marine safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||20 October 2007|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The shipboard procedures and practices for operating, maintaining and monitoring the K8E lubricating oil filter were inadequate. The standby filter was not checked to ensure that it was ready for use and the in-service K8E filter's condition was not adequately monitored.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that AJ Ship Management takes action to address this safety issue.
