Safety Alert - Hidden Trip Hazards

Recently, an incident occurred on an offshore platform when a Stork employee went over his ankle whilst walking through a temporary workplace habitat. On investigation, it was noted that the injured party (IP) had walked over an access hatch on the deck, which in turn had been covered up by the habitat sheeting and was hidden from view.

It is believed that the IP’s foot went into one of the hand indentations on the hatch, this caused him to lose balance and go over his ankle. Constructing and working in such habitats is an everyday and routine task for many of our employees. Therefore it is important to consider the learnings from this incident.
