Safety Alert: High Potential Near Miss – Ouch!

 

We have received a Safety Alert from the Marine Safety Forum relating to an incident in which a crewmember was inadvertently hoisted by a crane on deck.

 

This high potential near miss provides a timely reminder of the need to:

 

a) ensure your PPE is properly adjusted, and

b) ensure you put yourself in a safe position prior to giving the lift signal to the crane driver

 

Whilst this incident happened in the offshore Oil and Gas industry, something similar could easily happen on a workboat engaged in crane operations.
