The information you provide in your incident report plays an important part in guiding the way we improve maritime safety for everybody on the water.
Monthly incident reports

By reporting marine incidents to us, you are also meeting your reporting obligations under Australian laws. 

Every month we share an overview of a domestic commercial vessel incident investigation and the safety lesson you can learn to prevent a similar incident occurring on board your vessel.  

This month’s report examines an incident where a fishing vessel with a steering pump failure was hit by a large wave. This resulted in the master sustaining a head injury when he was hit by a hatch cover.

Each month we also report on the number and types of domestic commercial marine incidents reported to us. This information is broken down by state, vessel type and a description of the incident. Read the monthly domestic commercial vessel incident report.
