Safety + First

It is a well known fact why the word "SAFETY + FIRST" is written on this type of vessel. Without such a reminder, repeat of similar incident involving a tanker carrying methanol that recently exploded while berthing at Labuan, leaving one crewman dead and four missing could easily happen anytime.

During recent incident, it was believed that lightning strike started the fire while the vessel was being loaded with methanol.
