UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch report

Here is a report just issued on a confined space fatality in June:

Excerpt:

“This is the sixth fatality in an enclosed space that the MAIB has investigated since September 2007.  In view of these, and many other fatalities occurring in similar circumstances worldwide, the MAIB issued a Safety Bulletin in July 2008.”

I’m glad they took action, but it should have happened sooner.  Don’t get caught in this trap – be proactive and use TapRooT® to investigate incidents and to audit performance before accidents occur.  For course information, visit http://www.taproot.com/courses.php
