Lifeboat Drill Mishap in Australia

July 29, 2002

The Australia Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) released a Safety Bulletin following a recent lifeboat drill mishap. A seaman was killed and two others were seriously injured when the lifeboat fell 20 meters into the water after the wire falls parted. The limit switches did not operate and the falls parted when the davits came up to their stops with the winch motor running. The ATSB is concerned about the increasing incidents of lifeboat drill mishaps. Source: HK Law
