Safety Alert - Alustar Access Hatch

A third party was working on a Stork assembled Alustar scaffold (shown above) which had been accessed via the pictured hatch. Whilst on the scaffold, a crew member called for the assistance of a Stork Scaffolder who climbed the ladder and opened the hatch to access the platform.

At the same time, the third party crew member stepped backwards and fell down the hatch. His fall was broken by the Stork Scaffolder, however he did sustain a serious arm injury. The Stork Scaffolder was uninjured.
