Investigations are underway into two fatal incidents aboard Manx registered ships.

The first, on 26 August, aboard the bulk carrier Mona Manx happened during berthing operations at Las Ventanas in Chile. 

The second, on 30 August, was on the bulk carrier Teal Bay during mooring deck operations in the Kavkaz anchorage in Russia.
