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.
