In the News - Coroner's Court rules death by misadventure caused by lack of safety procedures

On October 28th 2011 Stephen Bayfield lost his life at work in Dublin Port after he was crushed by a wheel of a large slow moving crane.

The Dublin Coroner’s Court heard how there were no safety systems in place for crane drivers crossing the cargo area. It was known among staff that the environment was unsafe but everyone 'just got on with it'.  

Since the terrible tragedy, a number of safe systems have since been put in place such as defined and fenced off pathways, a designated changeover area for the cranes and radios for the drivers to communicate.

The court also recommended that a risk assessment be revised regularly and asked for a safety representative to be appointed to deal with staff safety issues on site.
