The Department evaluates the findings of all Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) investigations to ensure any significant safety failings are brought to the attention of the appropriate sector. It reviews policy and incorporates any lessons learned to drive continuous improvement.

In this tragic case, which occurred on an Isle of Man-registered vessel, MAIB did not make any recommendations since the owners of the vessel had acted quickly to put the necessary provisions in place to prevent any recurrence.

MAIB’s publicly available report provides a repository of learning on the causes of the accident and the response.
