[QUOTE=Fraqrat;176384]I was wondering if he was crew or possibly a local contractor. Either way the ships electricians should have been assisting him and following al safety procedures.[/QUOTE]
I don’t know- the news reports say he was the “ship’s electrician,” and I imagine they carry more than one. Might have been a tech from Otis or Kone, too. Sounds like lockout/tagout procedures bypassed or incomplete. I really don’t like elevators, dumbwaiters, etc. Anything that puts one between a rock and a hard place, so to speak.
In the ERM course I just took, the instructor spoke about a rash of serious accidents with Otis field technicians, and the analysis was that many of the accidents happened when the tech lost focus on the job and did something careless, like hooking his fall harness to a cable run instead of the anchors provided. Head in the game is just as important.
I feel terrible about the poor guy- that had to be an agonizing way to go.
[QUOTE=follow40;176383]The family that came across the scene of blood flowing out of the elevator were offered 3 counselling sessions paid for by Carnival. Coming across a scene like that might give someone PTSD.
The deceased’s name was Jose Sandoval Opazo. It doesn’t say what part of the world he was from, he could have been american?[/QUOTE]
If he was crew, probably not. Those ships are all FOC.
