I reject the premise in the ABC article ‘Veteran warns Australia’s Collins Class submarine fleet has limited ability to save trapped submariners’ (11 November 2020) that our submarines are not safe, or that Defence is not providing a safe work environment for our submariners. Their safety is our number one priority.

Royal Australian Navy submariners are a professional force, trained and equipped to manage all possible eventualities related to submarine operations.
