Hold-cleaning operations were being conducted during a ballast voyage in favourable weather. The crew were using a ladder and a high-pressure water jet to remove cargo residue from the sloping upper hopper bulkhead.
The ladder was secured at the top by a rope and was stabilised by a crew member at the bottom. Another crew member climbed the ladder and directed the water-jet on to the bulkhead to remove cargo residue.
