Marine safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Marine Safety Business Unit of the Western Australian Department for Planning and Infrastructure
|Date issued:||06 June 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
Despite it being unusual for a barge to anchor off Carnarvon, the Marine Safety Business Unit did not consider it necessary to alert any boat operators to the barge's presence in an area that was regularly transited by them.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Marine Safety Business Unit of the Western Australian Department for Planning and Infrastructure takes action to address this safety issue.
