Report into deadly accident published

Fri May 22 18:45:48 CEST 2020 Timsen

Several safety failings led to the death of a dredge worker in Fife aboard the 'Cherry Sand', an investigation by the Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) has found. Brian Smith, 72, was crushed between the vessel and the quayside wall while disembarking at Rosyth Port on February 28, 2019. The MAIB found the method used for self-mooring the boat was "inherently hazardous". Mr Smith, the master of the vessel , missed the quay while trying to step on to the quayside before the boat was fully docked. He was warned by another crew member not to attempt to leave the ship as it was too early. Wearing a life jacket, the crew were able to recover him but his injuries were too severe and he could not be revived. The MAIB said due to the hazardous nature for self-mooring the Cherry Sand, crew members routinely stepped ashore or on board before the vessel was tight alongside. It found another failing was linesmen not being used and that no measures were taken to avoid having to place a crew member ashore while the vessel was unmoored. An audit by UK Dredging did not identify any safety issues that were below the expected level. The MAIB has recommended the Maritime and Coastguard Agency updates the code of safe working practices to include guidance for safe self-mooring and the circumstances when it is permissible for crew to carry out self-mooring operations. Associated British Ports has been recommended to review its audit programme to ensure a common approach to safety and adherence to operational procedures across the UK Dredging fleet.

UK Dredging Celebrates 50th Anniversary Of Grab Dredger Cherry Sand

Thu Aug 23 21:56:32 CEST 2018 arnekiel

ABP’s operating division UK Dredging (UKD) has celebrated the 50th anniversary of one of its key dredging vessels – the Cherry Sand. The Cherry Sand was built by Appledore Shipbuilders in North Devon for ABP’s predecessor the British Transport Docks Board and first entered into service in 1968. The grab hopper dredger was designed to maintain the Port of Grimsby, which is also Cherry Sands’ Port of Registry. Today, the ship operates much further afield, dredging not only on the Humber but at ports all around the UK. During her working life the Cherry Sand has moved an estimated 25 million tonnes of mud, silt and sands from berths, docks and harbours and their approaches.
