Seafarer Dies after Being Struck by Container in Dublin
Date:2018-11-27 Readers:

A Filipino seafarer died after a container struck him at Southbank Quay, Ringsend, Dublin, on November 14, when he was doing lashing work while container lifting operations were underway,  the International Transport WorkersFederation (ITF) informed.

 

The ill-fated mariner was a crew member of the Antigua and Barbuda-flagged containership MV Francop.

 

The 2003-built vessel arrived to Dublin from Maasvlakte, Rotterdam, on November 12, based on its latest AIS data.

 

Our thoughts go out to the family, friends and fellow crew members of Dennis Gomez Regana. But lets be clear, he never should have been put in this dangerous position,ITFs maritime coordinator, Jacqueline Smith said.

 

When a ship gets to port the seafarers on board have done their work, they should be maintaining their ship and resting. The very last thing they should be doing is the difficult and dangerous work of lashing and securing containers. The work should be left to dockers who have the training and experience to do it more safely.

 

The ITF and ETF are clear that it is better for dockers and seafarers if this work is done by dock workers. Lashing is dockers work, full stop,ITF dockers section representative Peter Lahay added.

 

We must put an end to unscrupulous shipowners and port operators putting pressure on seafarers to do lashing and securing. I hope they take notice of this tragedy today and change their ways, if they dont then more seafarers will be seriously hurt or killed.
