Crewman seriously injured – Manawatu Standard

Share

A Chinese man on board a logging ship in Picton was taken to hospital with serious head injuries early yesterday after being hit on the head with a large crane hook.

The 28-year-old man was flown to Wairau Hospital, in Blenheim, and then to Hutt Hospital for surgery.

Ship’s agent Southern Maritime Services director Bryce Fleming said the crewman was hit by the heavy hook when he was securing cranes on the Hope Star before starting work so the cranes would not swing around at sea.

Four cranes are fixed on the deck of the ship, with each crane capable of lifting about 30 tonnes, Mr Fleming said.

“It must have just swung and hit him.”

The ship was docked at Waimahara Wharf in Shakespeare Bay, next to Picton Harbour, when the accident happened about 12.30am.

Exova (UK) Limited won the tender to test homes across South Ayrshire.

But the Post can reveal the same company admitted months earlier to three breaches of the Control of Asbestos Regulations Act.

Despite a fine and heavy criticism from the Health and Safety Executive, bosses at South Ayrshire still handed the firm a contract worth £155,000.
