BC Ferries Issues Findings into Incident

Monday, January 29, 2007
BC Ferries released the findings of its internal investigation into the January 9, 2007 incident where the MV Quinsam unexpectedly pulled away from the dock at the Nanaimo Harbour terminal resulting in a vehicle rolling off the ramp. The Divisional Inquiry findings conclude no mechanical, electrical, or system faults were identified affecting the function of the vessel propulsion system immediately upon the occurrence of the incident or during subsequent inspections and testing. The Divisional Inquiry panel, which included representatives from both management and the BC Ferry and Marine Workers’ Union, therefore concluded that human factors likely contributed to the occurrence of the incident and the report details two possible scenarios. The report also makes 16 recommendations on operational safety improvements that will be acted upon immediately.
