Safety Issue

The actions taken by the Port of Brisbane Corporation on 24 June 2006, in relation to the reloading of the xanthates containers onto Kota Pahlawan, were inconsistent with its publicly stated core value of 'safety first' and did not adequately consider the master's legal and safety responsibilities to comply with the requirements of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code.

Safety Recommendation

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Port of Brisbane Corporation take action to address this safety issue.
