Marine safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||06 June 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The Harbour Master's Operational Manual and the Service Level Agreement between the Marine Safety Business Unit and the Regional Services Branch did not provide sufficient guidance for either the harbour master or the regional transport officer to ensure that all navigational risks for Carnarvon were identified and assessed so that appropriate measures could be taken to mitigate them.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau acknowledges the safety action taken by the Marine Safety Business Unit of the Western Australian Department for Planning and Infrastructure and recommends that the Marine Safety Business Unit takes further action to address this safety issue.
