Canada’s Transportation Safety Board (TSB) issued an investigation report on the uncontrolled fall of a rescue boat during a drill onboard the RoRo passenger ferry ‘Queen of Cumberland’ in April 2018 off British Columbia, that caused two injuries. The investigation found that incorrect securement led to the fall.
Drill Performance onboard ships is the most vital element of a successful emergency response. Drills are required either by legislation or as part of the Company SMS and the time and energy spent across the industry to comply with legislation and ensure a proper response when necessary is huge.
