Crewman Injured In Fall Aboard Tanker Near Neah Bay,Washington

Yesterday the Coast Guard airlifted a seriously injured crewman from the tanker ship POLAR STAR near Neah Bay, Washington. Details of how the 56 year old crewman was injured were not available. The injured crewman was transported to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles for treatment. Injuries involving falls from ladders, unguarded holds, and unstable loads remains one of major causes of injury accidents for crewmen working at sea. It is important that all ladders and steps aboard ships and fishing vessels comply with construction safety standards. Open holds should always be manned and guarded to prevent injuries.
