At the time of writing there are 2,077 reports in the joint accident and near accident shipping database, Insjö. A striking number of these are of a technical nature and describe systems and equipment that suddenly cease to operate and thus give rise to high risk situations. Several events were described in which anchors had been lost or unintentionally dropped.
The working group for Insjö has had an information film made about the near accident system, Insjö. The film is 15 minutes long and is called ”Thanks to the human factor”. It can be ordered free of charge from the Maritime Safety Inspectorate investigation unit by telephone at 011-19 10 00. At the moment it is only available in Swedish but it is expected to be subtitled in English in the near future.
