Report Finds Human Error And Lack Of Training Resulted In The Goliath Collision

Human errors and inadequate training have been at the centre of the bulk cement carrier dubbed “Goliath”, crashing into the two tugs and submerging them in the Port of Devonport in January 2022.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has reportedly released its findings of the collision, which sunk the Campbell Cove and York Cove and impaired the West No. 4 berth, where they had been moored.

The ATSB mentions the transfer of manoeuvring controls from the Goliath’s bridge to the bridge wing; the proper steering mode wasn’t chosen.

The examination reportedly discovered that neither the second mate nor the master had undertaken the bridge resource management training.

Angus Mitchell, ATSB’s chief commissioner, mentions the errors had the impact of speeding the vessel up when it should’ve been slowing down.

The 61-pager report noted the vessel’s operator, CSL Shipping Australia, has reportedly taken actions to rectify the safety concerns identified by the ATSB.

TasPorts has reportedly commenced some legal proceedings against the CSL.
