MAIB Issues Timber Deck Cargo Study

Friday, August 29, 2003
The U.K. Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) issued its Timber Deck Cargo Study, which was undertaken following a series of marine casualties involving timber carried on deck. The study concludes that the IMO Code of Safe Practice for Ships Carrying Timber Deck Cargoes is adequate, but is not being rigorously applied in practice. Among other things, more effort must be made to maximize friction between timber deck cargoes and hatch covers and lashings must be used more effectively. Source: HK Law
