The reporting of accidents to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) is mandatory for all commercially operated vessels in UK waters and for all UK registered vessels worldwide.
The MAIB receives between 1,500 and 2,000 incident reports annually of which 40 to 50 become full investigations with published reports.
A UK government agency, the MAIB is authorised to investigate all maritime accidents in UK waters and accidents involving UK registered ships worldwide. Investigations are thorough but are strictly limited to establishing cause, promoting awareness of risks and preventing recurrence.
This talk is free and open to anyone interested. Please register your place via the Eventbrite webpage* or contact Daniel Gibbons (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any queries regarding this event.
