Please don't confuse "never has there been an actual safety issue" with "never has there been an accident".

Landing on the wrong deck is a huge safety issue for a lot of reasons. That it has not yet led to a FOD event, Crane strike, Mid-air or any one of the other possible hazards is nothing more than good fortune.

"there have been loads" - Oh - that's all right then - must be fine if it happens all the time!
