Aberdeen oil man killed in rig fall
An oil man plunged to his death at Keppel Singapore ship yard recently. The rumor mill among rig hands was that his harness malfunctioned and it is the third so far at the yard. It is a stark reminder to all that despite the voluminous safety manuals, it is absolutely important to study these unfortunate incidents and continue to enhance our safety standards. His brother works for us and it saddens us all to see a colleague affected by this traumatic event.
