I was dismayed to read in the news about the 49 year old diver who died while working on the Acergy Osprey Vessel. It is thought that the diver suffered a heart attack. Emergency services were called, however, by the time the helicopter had made the journey from Sumburgh to the Vessel which was over 100 miles away, the man had been declared dead.

The health and safety investigation is underway with cooperation being required from the company and other relevant authorities. The intention was for the helicopter to airlift the diver and take him to Lerwick Hospital. At present, the police are advising that the death is being treated as unexplained with a report to be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.

It is already known that working offshore is one of the most dangerous industries in the world, however, if anybody is injured in an accident at work or takes ill the delay in gaining access to good quality medical treatment, by virtue of being offshore, could cause injuries to worsen and as in this case, can prove fatal.
