The UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) has issued a Flyer reminding the maritime community of dangers associated with fumigated cargo.  Following a recent crew member casualty, it was determined that the fumigant (phosphine gas) leaked from the cargo hold into the adjacent berthing space.  Owners, operators, and masters of ships that carry fumigated cargo are advised to carefully review their fumigation procedures and precautions.
