Marine safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Lloyd's Register
|Date issued:||05 June 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
Creciente's classification society, Lloyd's Register, did not have rules or guidelines in place to ensure that the mooring winch brakes were adequately inspected and maintained, allowing the condition of the brakes to deteriorate and slip at below their designed holding capacity.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that Lloyd's Register takes action to address this safety issue.
