The Confidential Hazardous Incident Reporting Programme (CHIRP) has released its latest maritime broadcast on pilot safety, along with the latest issue of Maritime FEEDBACK which reports on: 

 * MARPOL violations and safety management failings
 * Abuse of MLC 2006                                                                 
 * Safety when handling tugs
 * Hygiene – medical condition in the galley
 * Damage to an anchor windlass hydraulic motor
 * Hazards associated with fuel oil leakage
 * Damage to a fixed CO2 system remote control cabinet
 * NAVAREA Warnings are issued for a reason
 * Radar Antenna fell off
 * Personal Survival Training
 * Examples of Best Practices.

“All the reports we receive can teach us important safety lessons and we thank all the reporters for sharing the lessons with us. Without them, there would be no Maritime FEEDBACK,” says Captain John Rose, Director of CHIRP Maritime. “We are now working on producing this edition in Putonghua (Mandarin) for Chinese maritime academies and in a future edition Tagalog for Filipino seafarers and academies.”
