Marine safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Parakou Shipping
|Date issued:||29 September 2009|
|Safety action status:||Closed - Action Taken|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The work permit system had not been effectively implemented on board the ship. Consequently, most maintenance and repair work was being carried out by ship's personnel without the work permits and 'Danger: Do Not Operate' tags that were required by the ship's procedures.
ATSB recommends that the Parakou Shipping undertake further action to address this safety issue.
