Marine Accident Investigation Branch (UK Govt)

I thought this might of interest, particularly to those outside the UK.


The MAIB investigates Marine accidents and incidents for Merchant Shipping, Fishing vessels and Leisure boats.

The 1/4ly report usually gets included free with one or two of the monthly UK mags. But are downloadable (PDF files) from here.

Marine Accident Investigation Branch: Safety Digest 3/2006


Unsurprisingly the commercial incidents are the most common, but I still find these of interest.

Just to say that the MAIB does not investigate everything when it comes to leisure craft, certainly if it involved loss of life and I presume for serious injury - but if someone "just" runs aground or their mast falls down then I don't beleive it generates an "automatic" investigation by the MAIB.

I am not sure of what the actual trigger is, possibly anything that involves a Coroners Inquiry or Police investigation or also incidents reported that appear to be something from which lessons can be learned..........and probably anything that hits the Media...........

CHIRP Maritime

also makes interesting reading. It's a month by month digest of confidential reports of maritime safety incidents which didn't end up resulting in a reportable accident reported to CHIRP including leisure as well as commercial.

http://www.maib.gov.uk/cms_resources...0289%5F1%2Epdf

gives the regulations for what must be reported to the MAIB. Basically any accident on a UK registered ship, any accident on a ship in a UK port, any serious accident (fire, explosion, death or serious injury, capsize of a power vessel or a pollution incident) on a leisure craft

Some of the reports are unbelievable for the stupidity shown. Others are just plain scarey
