Swire Shipping (NZ) Limited accepts the Commission’s recommendation 006/23.

Although the accommodation ladders involved in this incident complied with regulations, they have been completely replaced with an updated design which ensures this particular incident will not recur on Moana Chief, and we have put in place supporting processes designed to improve safety on board the vessel.

We accept there is always room for improvement in safety culture and embrace the opportunity having already demonstrated our intentions by the steps taken as set out in Section 5 of the Commission’s report. Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
