ATSB's report into the collision between the Australian fishing vessel Apollo S and the Liberian registered bulk carrier Grand Rodosi

ATSB's report into the collision between the Australian fishing vessel Apollo S and the Liberian registered bulk carrier Grand Rodosi | Creating designs 'fit' for people! | Scoop.it

The ATSB's report into the collision between the Australian fishing vessel Apollo S and the Liberian registered bulk carrier Grand Rodosi contains important messages for pilots and ships' crews.The collision occurred at Port Lincoln, SA, on 8 October 2012 while Grand Rodosi was berthing. As a result of the collision, Apollo S was crushed against a wharf and sank. Grand Rodosi sustained small holes in its bow shell plating. The investigation found that despite the pilot ordering astern movements, the ship's main engine did not respond. The chief engineer, who was operating the main engine start/fuel lever in the engine room control room, did not allow sufficient time for starting air to stop the ahead running engine. Consequently, when fuel was introduced into the engine, it continued to run ahead, despite the astern telegraph orders.

The investigation also found that the chief engineer's mistake was not noticed on the ship's bridge or in the engine control room until after the collision; that the master/pilot information exchange was less than optimal; and that bridge resource management could have been better during the passage to the berth.

I hope you enjoy and gain value from this curated topic which includes 'scoops' from official reports, articles, blogs, video and photo galleries.  The posts have been selected through the lens of an active researcher and educator in safety science and human factors design (you can learn more about how that perspective is informed at http://www.cqu.edu.au/staff-profiles/school-of-human,-health-and-social-sciences/school-of-human,-health-and-social-sciences/tofty).

 

Watch this space for updates on our Bachelor of Accident Forensics, Masters in Accident Investigation, Human Factors and OHS education and research programs at CQUniversity; food for thought more generally about the relationship between accidents, design and human error; and other interesting human factors and safety science tidbits!  You can follow this topic here in Scoop.it! or @MsMischiefmaker (twitter) or subscribe to the RSS feed for regularly updated posts at http://lnkd.in/R7vGS6.
