MAIB – Investigation of Fatal Accident

Monday, April 18, 2005
The UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) issued its report of the investigation of the fatal accident on board the UK combi-coaster NORDSTRAND in Seville, Spain on 20 September 2004. A crewmember was killed and the chief officer was injured when a portable hold bulkhead fell while being relocated. Investigation revealed the bulkhead fell because the locking pins were not properly secured. There was no established procedure for checking to determine whether the locking pins were secure. The safety management risk assessment for movement of the bulkheads was vague and unrealistic. Report No. 8/2005 Source: HK Law
