First aid was quickly started by the crew on board. The vessel went to Skaland to transfer the casualty to air ambulance, but life was not going to save.
The investigation showed that the hatch covers were not any equipped with any securing devices. The ship's safety manual was incomplete with regard to work tasks involving the hatch cover. Such tasks had never been identified as a potential hazard, nor had risk assessments been carried out.
The Shipping company, ship yard and the Norwegian Maritime Authority has implemented actions to prevent similar accidents to occur in the future.
Due to the measures taken, the AIBN has not issued any safety recommendation in connection with this accident. ■
