Offshore Wind: Dropped Object Incident

Steel coil falls on wind farm construction site

A contractor breaks their wrist after being struck by a falling 50kg steel wire coil on the pre-construction site for an offshore wind farm off the East Coast of England.

This incident could have been prevented if the manufacturer had carried out a sufficient risk assessment, putting in place simple measures to reduce the risk of injury from dropped objects. This incident was covered in national press, resulting in multiple impacts including injury to personnel as well as financial and reputational damage.
