No more man-overboard drill before the end of investigations
The fatal accident on board the "Anna Maersk" on Mar 28, during which a Filipino seaman was killed and a Danish officer badly injured, led to a warning that the drills should be planned and carried out safely. The accident occurred in connection with the lowering of an MOB boat during an abandon ship drill and was conducted while the "Anna Maersk" was in Kobe. The Maritime Accident Investigation is still investigating the accident and can not currently say anything specific about the cause of the accident. The Søfartsstyrelsen however stressed that the equipment must be inspected and maintained. It is important to be aware of corrosion. Launching a boat with people inside may pose an unnecessary risk. Such exercises must be performed in compliance with special security measures, the Maritime Authority noted. After the fatal accident the Maersk Line gave all its ships orders not to perform man-overboard drills before the cause of the fatal accident has been established.
